The diagram is right on top of the radio...

Like so....

You can tap your Hi/lo converter right into those wires.

IF you are hooking up a SUB, then you want the front speaker wires.

Oh wow lol I did not know that? And why the front speakers? I thought the rear was better to use to tap into.

Front speakers have the better bass signal, not the rear ones. IF you are hooking
up subs, if not, rears are fine then.

If you look at your front door speakers, they will be different than the rear ones.
They are for bass, the rear ones are not. The exception is the fender and some
other premium 8 systems, both the front and rear are identical.

FACTORY FRONT EXAMPLE:


FACTORY REAR EXAMPLE:



OR, they can be both the same, but the FRONT is where most of the bass signal is
sent.

You have the positions on the harness, as shown, color is irrelevant....
It even tells you which one is positive, and which one is negative.
