I'm trying to install a new Head Unit in my Forester, and i cant find anything online showing which wires do what. ive never seen wire colors like the ones in the forester and they dont match up to my new Head Units harness. I mean, really, who uses blue and yellow, black and red, red and black, etc. if someone could just tell me which wires are power +&- and which wires are +&- for the speakers and which speakers they belong to. my forester has stock tweeters too so if that changes things at all, please let me know. thanks

I would consider buying a Metra 70-8901 harness to adapt the car connector to your new head unit. You can splice the Metra harness to the harness from the head unit and then it's plug and play.

I second the vote for the reverse wiring harness- only about $5 on Ebay and makes the job so much neater and easier and you can swap head unit between Subaru's easily, if need be.
