i have a set of butt connectors and i am going to butt up the white females to older black female connectors for tweeters in the front door cards.

how do i open these white speaker female connectors? i might just butt up the wires coming from each one.

grrr.

all the wires mean is + - so green is plus and green/white is minus, might not be in that order but you know what i mean, just put the connectors on and join up that way if you ever change all you have to do is put one new connector on, there are more pro ways of doing it but as a diy job its ideal

yea bro, front tweeters! i am doing a nifty mod on some connectors.

i have a '93 big black connector and i am making up some leads to go from female old black connector to the new small white female one, so i can plug that straight into some '95 nokia tweeters, then i can fit my new door cards!

:D

Ive got all the BMW E36 speaker + and - wire colours and speaker locations all written down at work :cool
Ill post them up first thing tomorrow so you get them all the right way round coz if you get the positive and negative the wrong way round they will sound crap :hihi
Remember the footwell speakers and door speakers are connected together :thumbsup

the speakers dont matter, you can have them either way round itll still work and sound the same, stereos are a nightmare but they only need 3 wires to work so its pretty easy working that out, my pug is a pain cos if you look at the wiring diagram they use codes instead of colours, alright if you have a multi meter but i didnt at the time so i ended up popping a main fuse..oops lol

doin a good job fella, just remember to make sure its insulated properly incase it touches the inside of the door, even tho its painted you will still get interference
