I am trying to Solder the audio cable to the left and right terminals but I dont know what goes where.
I am using a 6ft dual ended aux cable. So there is a 3.5 mm jack on both sides, I'm not using an RCA cable. So I chopped one end off and stripped it down. So right now I'm left with 3 wires.
White, red, and blue. Now I'm assuming that white is negative, red is positive, and blue is the ground. So the main question is what goes where? Reading his tutorial he just says to "solder them up" but what to where!??
IF I go with his route and get an rca cable with the left and right audio outputs, How would I go about soldering those wires up? He says to join the negatives togather which makes sense then would leave the right positive and left positive alone. So where do the negatives and positives go?
Please help, I would like to finish this project tonight. Thanks!!

Since you have another 3.5mm jack, why not cut the insulation around the jack and see where the wires are soldered to.
Pretty sure the tip is left ch, ring below is right ch, and lastly ground (at least that's what a few Google searches resulted).

Well I got it all soldered up. And to say the least I am very impressed with my work! These are extremely small terminals and wires so I am happy with the way they came out. I'm sure people could make it look much nicer, but Im satisfied. Then to keep all the wires mounted, I just put a thin line of superglue holding them down. The second picture is with a penny, just so you get an idea of how small this really is!!
I wasn't going to bother posting any of this up, But I figured I would just incase somebody else was bored and wanted to futs around with their car. The more that comes up in the search the better!
