    Hey everyone, I just installed two infinitty kappa 3.5''s in my k5 but I didn't know the gm's color code for my truck, i tried to do my best but I guess it didn't work, when I turn up the volume, the music starts to skip, and thats on the radio, not the cd player, so what I am asking is if anyone knows the color codes for my 88' k5, I would be very happy, I know the colors on the right speaker are light green and dark green, and on left front speaker they are grey and light green, I think those are the colors, I did this at night, but I just don't know which ones are positive and which are negative, can someone please help me out. Thanks!!

    Drivers side: Grey is negative, the other wire should be tan and its positive.
    Pass side: Dark green is negative and light green is positive.

    Wiring the speakers out of phase, shouldnt cause your radio to shut off at high volume, Make sure that none of the speaker leads are touching ground, sometimes when you install them they touch in the dash, wrap some tape around the terminals before installation. Hope this helps
