That depends. If they're computer speakers and all your wires are headphone-jack style, then all you do is run the headphone wire from your speakers and plug it into your computer speaker input on the sound card, or a headphone jack. If they're not computer speakers and you want to wire component speakers through your computer, you'll need a receiver to power them, speaker wire to go from your speakers to the receiver, and a cable to go from your receiver "input jack" to your computer. That cable should have a red and white RCA on one end, and a headpone jack on the other.

To wire new speakers, you will need to remove your existing speakers first. Check your owners manual to find the location and instructions.

You can but it is not a good choice, you need flexible wire for speakers.

first you must remove the plastic casing from the rear speakers and remove the dashboard. then disconnect the old speaker wire from the old speakers and tie the new wire to the old wire. at the radio, pull the speaker wires one by one until the new wire reaches you. then splice the new speaker wire to both the radio and the speakers and replace the dash and covers

no it doesnt matter for large house speakers but if you have little speakers hooked up to something small then it will matter.

Speakers can be wired in parallel or in series. Take the speaker wire from the output, and wire the speakers like so: (ignore the squiggles, they represent spaces) ----|------| S S ----|------| For a parallel wiring. This will reduce the impedance of each speaker, though, so two ohm speakers should be used insead of four ohm speakers. Wire them like this: ----| S | S ----| for series wiring. This will increase impedance though, so eight ohm speakers should be bought instead of four. You will be fine using four ohm speakers in either case, but will lose clarity.

Speaker wire should be sized to the maximum wattage that the speakers can handle. Use the following formula Amps = Watts divided by Voltage of the system driving the speakers.

The white and red is your constant (yellow), the 4 blue wires are front speakers the four green wires are rear speakers, the red wire is your ground, and the blue wire on that plug is your 12v ignition wire.
