Name those wires

Post by HillVR » Mon Sep 05, 2011 7:52 pm

I have a 93 Aspencade that I bought used. In the left hand glove box there are two wires with mini-jack ends on the and about 6 feet of wire each. I have speakers in the rear and a silver knob on the dash that was added. Does anyone know what these are? I was wondering if they were for a comm system or I-Pod hookup. Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks, Vern

The silver knob is the fader switch that came with the aftermarket rear speaker kit. It is a plug-and-play installation, that is, no splicing or other wiring was required. Sorry, but I can't help with the mini-jacks, other than what you are surmising, ie optional stereo inputs.

Could be for external speakers like computer speakers to bring to the beach

Those wires with the mini jacks were added by a previous owner. What is the other end connected too?
