Yup, looks like that is it. Now you just have to figure out which one is + and which one is -

I think the colors vary from year to year, so I'll let someone with a '94 tell ya.

Looks like you're wiring the back ones. Do you have the gain control? If you do, then there are two sets of wires to each side for the dual-coil speaker...

These are for the midrange/tweeter or full range.

LH Rear + = brown
LH Rear - = yellow
RH Rear + = Dark Blue
RH Rear - = Light Blue

Do you need the subwoofer outputs from the gain amplifier?

You'll need to run 2 wires to each + and - terminal to get the full sound.

can someone make me a diagram of the two wires going to each or whatever?

why would this been cut? i honestly thought both speakers worked before i effed with them... maube the dousche bag at best buy cut them wheni got the front ones installed so i would come back?

also both my back tweeters were cut... before i owned it. is this common, because they did sound like CRAP.

Did they put in new wiring to the rear speakers, or did they use the existing wiring from the radio?

the plug you keep refering to is what pluged into the stock speaker. you need to cut that plug off and connect your speaker wire to it. sounds like you have a 6x9 with 2 connections. you will just runn two wires from each wire on the plug. i would suggest that the darker of the wire is the neg. and the lighter the pos. check your other speaker to see. sometimes they have one marked with a diffrent color strip. if you do not want to cut the wire you can but a adabter to plug into the stock plug and then you runn your speakr wore from it. i would just cut.

See? The light and dark blue wires are what your speaker is supposed to be hooked to!
