    No idea.

    But if you take out the HU, there's a fair chance that it'll have a sticker on it detailing the pinout of the speaker connections. Look at the connector, see which colour's on which pin. Problem solved.

    Look at the original speakers, should be a custom connector and on one of the speaker terminals it will Say +.

    What car?

    It will work both ways round but it will only sound any good if you get it the right way :D

    Just make sure you get both speakers the same, or it'll sound odd

    It will sound the same on an individual speaker, but if both speakers are wired differently then they'll each be 180degrees out of phase with each other... and it will sound weird.
