My rear speakers blow out and I want to replace them. I'm confused cause the stock ones have a red wire and a black wire connected to both male connectors on each side of the stock speakers. This is a Monsoon stereo that comes stock with the GT model. I'm aware that it has a stock amplifier, but how do I reconnect all the wires that are on the stock speakers to new speakers? If you can't answer this Louie, could you steer me to a site that may be able to help me? Thanks again for your help.

To Hmac300. I understand this, but both sides of each speaker have a red and a black wire and the ones I bought to replace the old ones only have the male connections on one side of the speaker. The place where I bought them gave me a chart to look at that stated the speakers I bought would work on my car. It didn't say anything about the old ones having a red wire and a black wire on each end of the speaker, and I've asked for their input and they are as confused as I am. The new speakers have just one positive post and one negitive post, so where do the other red and black wires hook too on the new speakers, and why would they be there in the first place? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I din't look at the shecmatic the first time the lr speaker positive wire is brown and negative yellow the right rear is dark blue-positive and lit blue neagative. Can't tell you about the other ones as the factory wiring only shows the wires I've indicated even with an amplifier.

On both sides, left and right, I have two red wires and two black wires that have their own male posts on each speaker. It does have a stock amp from the factory. Thanks just the same. I'll try to find a sight that can answer my questions. Have a nice day.

Thank you. This should help me greatly. Also, my first message that I addressed to Saturntech9 did state that this is a Monsoon stereo that comes stock on a GT model and that it also came stock with an amp. Nonetheless, what you have sent me should work just fine. Now I can at least see where the wires go no matter what color they are. Thanks again and have a nice day.

To Hmac300. Ok. I've found out that I must use a GM stock speaker if I want to replace the blowed one. I have an aftermarket unit I'd like to install along with the interface that retains the chimes. I'm being told that I can't do this using the stock amplifier, and the whole system would need to be rewired. Do you have any input on this. I'm thinking I should be able to use the other unit and save some money being the stock speaker isn't cheap at any sites I've found. Remember, this is a 2004 Grand Am GT with a stock Monsoon stereo and stock amp mounted in the trunk. Thanks for any help and the schematics you sent me did help BIG time even though the colors didn't match.
