One of the changes to the new ETXv3 Enclosed Speaker Systems is the switch from a traditional positive and negative speaker wire to a 6-conductor wire. There is now a single cable with six separate wires exiting the ETXv3 enclosure. The larger, 16 AWG wires are used for the speaker. Two of the smaller, 20 AWG wires are used for the LEDs in models that have LED grilles. See the chart below for wire use.
|Wire Size||Wire Color||Use|
|16 AWG||Red/Stripe||Speaker Positive (+)|
|Black/Stripe||Speaker Negative (–)|
|20 AWG||Red||Not Used|
|Blue||LED Positive (+)|
|Yellow||LED Negative (-)|
Note: Not all wires may be used in normal applications
