Well almost done with the prep stuff and getting ready to start pulling wires and came to the point when you say bad words. I've looked and still no luck. IF any one as a layout for the stock wires that plug into the radio it would be most helpful. There are 2 plugs one with 5 wires and the other has 9. Here is the order. This is one of those things that I know have been solved a million and one times and 5 mins of this is worth 2 hours tracing wires out. Thanks Curtis

1.....2
3..4..5

1)Grey, blue strip
2)Purple or black with Blue strip (2 of them)
3)Grey with Red strip
4)White with Black strip
5) Black with a red strip and a black wire (2 of them)

1..2.....3..4
5..6..7..8..9

1)White with red strip (2 of them)
2)Yellow with red strip
3)Purple with yellow strip
4)Green with white strip
5)Purple with red strip and a purple wire (2 of them)
6)White with a Blue strip (2 of them)
7)Yellow with blue strip
8)Red with a Black strip
9)Blue

I am running new wires to all the original speaker locations but the Alpine unit I have still needs the following.

Yellow............Battery hot
Black ............Ground
Blue/white........Remote turn on
Blue..............Power antennia lead
Red...............switched power(ignition)lead
Pink/Black........Audio interrupt in lead ( what ever thats for )

The stock speaker holes already have new speakers and they all will be powered from an amp in the trunk. I have a bunch of monster cable left over from my home system that I'm using. Plus with using the amp to power them I want as clean a sound as I can get.
The speaker wires from the alpine will power two sets of highs and a set of 4.5 small boxes that I mounted on the rear doors down next to the floor. They came from a Izuzu trooper about a 96 or so they are ported and have a really good sound and weigh only a few pounds total. I'm wiring the remote on from the radio thru a switch so if I want to turn off the amps I can still have the highs and the small boxes on the doors for sound.

I still have to find a telephone wire that has 6 wires instead of four to run the Remote bass volume control with and start running all the wires toward the back.

As for the sub I'm going to build a flat panel that fills the passenger side of the trunk weighing as little as possible and fill the leading edge of the space with contractors foam to enclose it. IF any one has done this I would like to hear from you about sound quality and or rattles.

So far I have almost nothing in this system, its all been stuff that I've had, my friends didn't need or came for nothing at the junkyard. The only part that I bought was the Alpine and I got it from a public auction. But it has taken about 3 years to collect it all.

Wouldn't it be easier to go to crutchfield or circuit city and just buy a mitsu wiring harness? It has it all pinned out for you. Then just tap your new speaker wires into that. As for the phone cable, just use an Ethernet cable. They're cheap and they have 8 wires.

Based on the connectors you have, the stock radio is minus a CD. Therefore, these are your pinouts. Make sure you check them because I cant remember if these depict the radio side or the cables (mirrors of each other)

++ on Josh's recommendation. It simplifys everything. Radio flack and wallyworld(walmart) carry some too.

Thanks for the info but as you guys were posting I had a multimeter out and started playing.

1.....2
3..4..5

1)Grey, blue strip--------------------------------------LR-
2)Purple or black with Blue strip (2 of them)-----------LF-
3)Grey with Red strip-----------------------------------RR-
4)White with Black strip--------------------------------ANT TRIGGER
5) Black with a red strip and a black wire (2 of them)--RF-

1..2.....3..4
5..6..7..8..9

1)White with red strip (2 of them)----------------------RF+
2)Yellow with red strip---------------------------------RR+
3)Purple with yellow strip------------------------------DIMMER
4)Green with white strip--------------------------------ILLUMINATION
5)Purple with red strip and a purple wire (2 of them)---RF-
6)White with a Blue strip (2 of them)-------------------LF+
7)Yellow with blue strip--------------------------------LR+
8)Red with a Black strip--------------------------------12 VOLT POSITIVE
9)Blue--------------------------------------------------SWITCHED 12 VOLT

Why MITSUBISHI IN THE WISDOM had 4 wires for the RF- is beyond me but this is the lay out so to the powers that be we can put this in the how to archives.

For the record RJ45 is not the same as RJ11. If it literally a "phone jack" (RJ11) an Ethernet (RJ45) cable will NOT fit in there.

Maybe what you're looking for is RJ25 (6 pins, telephone-sized plug)

Probably for auto-muting if you have a cell phone wired in somehow.

Oh okay. I didn't know he needed the connectors at the end, i just thought he wanted a cable with 6 different conductors in it. My bust. I did know the difference between RJ45 and RJ11.
