Easiest would be to get the speaker wire adaptor for your car. They run about $14 at bestbuy. Plugs into the stock harness and plugs into your speakers. Or you can google your speaker harness to find out what colors are positive and negative and clip the wire and solder it to your speakers.

Did you get component speakers? Or coaxial speakers?

Are you just replacing speakers and not using the crossovers?

The crossover is the box in the picture and according to the google this should be your speakers.

What I'm wondering is if your using the crossover how you have it hooked up.

If they are meant to be drop in replacements I would double check the polarity of the speakers and make sure you have them wired correctly. And I would also double check the impedance (resistance) of the stock speakers vs the new ones. That can cause speakers to not play correctly and a blown speaker can sometimes pull a amp in to protection mode.

Measure the resistance of the stock and the resistance of the new speakers if they don't match they won't work. A little variance is ok but not a lot.

Also make sure your polarity is correct if the speakers are the same impedance.

So take a digital multimeter and set it to resistance and attach the + lead to the + of the old speaker. Attach the - lead to the - of the speaker. Do the same with the new speakers. If the resistance dose not match like the pic i drew the speakers won't work.



This is what I found for the 2000 mustang I think that's what you have but its for a US mustang I think you're profile says your from Canada and the directechs I looked at didn't have anything for it.



So make sure your + speaker wire is attached to the + on the speaker and make sure none of your connections are exposed and touching bare metal.
