you cant just "wire them in" well, you can, but they wont do anything really. you need to get an external amplifier

other than the amp, you need power wire direct from the battery, and a LOC (line output converter). the LOC takes the speaker wires from the stock HU and changes them into RCA jacks, which an amp needs to get audio signal

right, your bonn already has an amp, see the gain slider below the radio, that is the adjustment for the amp. Let me check my 93 FSM for the wire colors

there should be some sort of marking on the speaker wire jacket. just make sure they match up, and youre golden.

usually, if the wire is marked, its negative

OOK here we go.

THIS IS RH rear

there is a LT.blu that goes from your radio to the anp that is your (-)
there is a Dk.blu that goes from your radio to the amp that is your (+)

from the amp you will have a LT. blu wire that supplies the tweet and the rear 6X9 that is your (-)

from the amp you will have a DK. blu wire that supplies the tweet and the rear 6X9 that is your (+)

then you will have a BLK/ LT. green wire from the amp that goes to the 6X9 sub that is your (-)

you will have a DK. blu/ white wire from the amp that goes to the 6X9 sub that is your (+)

not true the SSE and the SSEI have rear tweeters and a 6x9 with an amp, its actually quite difficult to decipher the wire colors without the diagram

so i put the converter on these wires for both the left and right? ( the colors on the bottom)
then i hook up my aftermarket amp to the converter and the battery and then its good to go?

then you will have a BLK/ LT. green wire from the amp that goes to the 6X9 sub that is your (-)

you will have a DK. blu/ white wire from the amp that goes to the 6X9 sub that is your (+)
