Okay, this is probably a dumb question. My new Alpine unit has wires for both the front, and rear speakers. You know, - and + for front right, front left, back right, back left. My car is wired so there are only wires for "Left" and "Right". Should I just use the Front Left and Right wires, and do nothing with the back left and right wires?

Okay, i'm close to getting this hooked up, but I really need some info.

This wiring is giving me a headache.

Ok, i'm trying to figure out how to hook this up.

On my stock wiring, there's a square plug with two wires going to it.

It says +12v on it. Where it plugs into the radio, it says the top wire is Ground, and the second wire is the ignition..... now why the hell does it say +12v on the top if it's ground? Is that just saying it's a 12v ground?

Okay, moving on to the second headache factor. There's a molex connector with two wires going into it. On the stock radio, where the yellow and white wires go into a hole, it says "Battery".



Where do those wires go, and what do I hook them up to.

Thanks for the help.
