Is there a polarity on the speaker plug in the door, I want to at least change out the 6x9s. I've got some Infinity kappas that I want to put in the doors. The stock system sounds kinda lame. Thanks for any input.

Yes there is, see previous threads on installs. If you wire the speaker backwards, it will pull the speaker to the magnet and not push it away like it is supposed to. Speaker death soon to follow. The 4 surround speakers are the biggest alteration in sound. Even though the magnet on the stock 6x9's is about as bid as a nickle, they produce more adequate sound than the 2.6" surrounds.

Wiring the speakers out of phase will not cause damage to the speakers. if the left is wired out of phase and the right is wired in phase, you will have cancellation resulting in no bass. If you've ever seen woofers installed backwards on the outside of fiberglass enclosures showing the magnet structure, they are wired out of phase. A woofer will move the same amount of air wired out of phase as they will in phase. If there are more than one, they just have to be wired the same.

Does anyone have the polarity for the 6x9's in the door? The passenger door has a red wire and a white wire. The driver's door has a solid blue wire and a red wire with a blue stripe.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks fish! I dropped in a pair of infiniti 6x9's and it took MAYBE 45 minutes for the 1st door and 30 minutes for the second with most of the labor being cutting away the plastic frame-struts from the speaker mount and the 1-3 inch plastic cuff on the door panel speaker grill.

whats with all the plus and minuses,, hard to understand
Assuming that you understand how a speaker converts electrical signals into soundwaves in air, the following will make sense.

Basically we are talking about the polarity of the speaker coil, relative to the polarity of the speaker's permanent magnet. Net result is that when the speaker is wired correctly (the polarity is correct), the speaker cone will move "forward" when a current pulse of a given polarity is applied to the speaker coil. Wired incorrectly, the speaker cone will move "backward" when the same current pulse is applied.
