I think the colors of the wires are black, grey, purple, yellow, & orange, so five in all. I took them out of the harness, and I think all I need to do to get my stock subwoofer to work again is correctly plug in each wire into it's respective slot. So, anyone have a pic of which color wire goes where? MUCH thanks in advance to anyone able to help out.

Originally posted by htweels86 No, it's the stock Bose subwoofer that goes under the speaker cover in the left rear of the car...
And WTH was this moved, this all refers to the STOCK F-BODY SUBWOOFER??
If you mean 'yes, it's a Bose system with 3 speakers[94 had 3 speakers, 2 in the doors, and the sub in the left rear, then I can help you out with that.. ] 95 and up had 5 speaker Bose system,2 in wing/sail panels..
Do you just need 'which color wire goes where' in the plug by the sub?[you removed them?]
If so, I am pretty sure I have one I can look at and see the order of them [or take a pic and email it to you..]
Hmmm...I'll bought my car a year ago June 6th, and I know it's a 1994, so the owner must've upgraded the sound system to 1995+ (since it has 5 speakers, 2 in the lower front parts of the door, 2 more behind the driver on the side of the car, and the sub in the left rear driver's side.) If you're able, send the pic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
And yes, I mean each differently colored wire is dangling separately, since I pulled them out of the black plastic 'clip'. Here's a pic of what I'm talking about...
You might be surprised to learn that there are no wing/sail speakers in your car..
The 3 speaker sub has a 5 wire plug, and the 5 speaker sub has a 9 wire plug, and a seperate 2 wire plug..[that's why I asked which you have, and assume you have the 3 speaker system, hence the 5 wires..]
Long story short, I am not at home right now, but will try to mail you the pic of the 5 wires,and the plug, tomorrow sometime...
Thnx man, yeah, go ahead and send the pic of the 3 speaker sub wiring. Just to speak what's on the top of my head about this deal, I had originally taken the stock sub out when it wouldn't work with the old Rampage head unit my car had when I bought it (which I later saw on the label that that unit could only power 2 speakers). Then I was bored one day, and ignorantly tried to connect my Panasonic speakers to my car. Didn't work, of course, but now that I have a Pioneer head unit, I'm hoping I can get the stock sub working w/ out paying 320 bucks to the dealer (probably will just go w/ out one if it comes to that! )
Thought I had a spare sub in the garage, but didn't..
I took a pic of the plug in the car tho[2 pics] sent you email, subject 'Bose sub pics'
Not sure what you are doing there, but if that rear sub doesn't work I MAY have a spare 3 speaker sub AMP around here somewhere[not positive, but may] that I can let you have for a few bux.. [far less than 320!]
I'll test it to be sure it works, too..
Again not sure I have one, but I recall stripping a sub enclosure out a while ago..

Thanks for the pics man, but I think my sub setup is shot! I put in some AC/DC, and the other 4 speakers sound fine , but all that came out of the sub were several loud *CRACKS/POPS* before it went silent. I hope that doesn't mean my sub speaker & amp are dead, I'm guessing it's because the wires are ruined when they are out of the harness like that, and I actually pulled them out of the metal prongs, so the wire threads are just sloppily wrapped around those prongs. Yeah, let me know what part(s) you have for the 3 speaker sub...
Yea you can't just rip those out they need a little tool[or improvised] to 'pin out' the little crimped connectors..
I probably tossed the housings and wire harness.. but may have saved a good amp.. give me a few [days?] to dig and see what I have here..
You say 'other 4 speakers'..
You do know that the 'wing/sail panel' 2 speakers in a 5 speaker Bose system are powered [amped] from that rear sub enclosure?[that's why there's 9+2 wires to a 5 speaker sub, and only 5 wires to a 3 speaker sub..] Its a totally different sub enclosure[inside that is]
Sorry for the late reply, I had to work a lot. So maybe the stock rear sub for either setup (5 speaker sub OR 3 speaker sub) won't work, since I have aftermarket speakers in the wing/sail panels, and who knows what kind of wiring was done to get them in, or the new head unit for that matter. And I know that those two Pioneer's in the wing/sail panel work without any kind of stock sub amp... Lemme see what you have, I'd prefer just to buy new wires from you tho, since I'm not even sure this stock sub with X number of speakers will work anyways...
