With most new installs, new wire (heavier size) is recommended from the amp to the speakers to handle the extra current that the new amp may be pushing to the speakers.

To answer your question you should recheck colours at the head unit end.

Some colours I have noted in the past

RL- Green Black
RL+ Green

RR - Violet Black
RR + Violet

So the wire with single colour is the positive.

Hope this helps.

Hi There,
Drop me a PM with your e-mail and I will forward a template for a spacer that fits all the original mounts, I made mine out of 16mm custom wood and painted black works a treat also as for wires I take it you have two sets of wires at the 6x9's I used (98 RS200Z) Right + blue /red, right negative grey /brown, left + blue / red
left - grey / brown. However this does assume you have used the rear speaker wires from the amplifier and not the rear woofer wires. I can also e-mail a description of head replacement and wiring if required

Altezza or Lexus?

If you have the separate tweeter/woofer like in the IS200 there will be 2 connections (4 wires) per speaker the bottom set that you can see when you look in from the boot are for the woofer you want the other set.
