68 Full size pontiac AM/FM radio


I have an AM/FM radio from a 68 Full size pontiac, it has a seperate Amp box that has a brown wire. Can anyone confirm what the brown wire is for? Is it a power wire? Thanks.

I have the wiring diagram for it but I will only have time to dig it out later tonight.

Thanks, works without the brown wire connected but i'm interested in knowing what its for. Does your diagram show how the fader switch is wired in.

Appreciate the help, i'm in no rush, thanks.

About 10 years ago I took an AM radio / fader / 8 track player out of a 68 Parisienne convertible.   The wiring was kind of butchered, and I never did figure out how it was to be wired.

 Any chance of you posting a couple of pictures of it, front and back? Just kind of curious.

 Here are some pic's. I moved the fins from the side of the radio to the rear.

Re the tan/brown wire from the multiplexer, on other units with the external multiplexer (1969 & prior) I've seen a blue wire where yours is tan with the same connector, it's for the 2nd audio channel that goes to the rear speaker.    Somewhere I have it written down, but I recall the Left Channel is for the Front speaker, and the Right Channel is for the Rear speaker.

I see the multiplexer has the AC Delco paper label on it, can you get me the model #?   I have AC Delco books for 69-72.

I'm also thinking you shouldn't need an external fader as the stereo radio should have a built in fader for front/back speakers.  You'll be able to tell by looking at the right hand shaft.  Does it have a place further down the shaft for a "Speaker" bezel?  Or is it just round for a "Select" bezel?

I think the bezels are on the wrong shafts, should be Volume & Tone on the left shaft, Tuning & Speaker on the right shaft.  As the bezels will only fit with an internal fader, your external fader is not required.     I still think the brown/tan wire is for the rear speaker.     I'm not sure if I'll have time to look up your multiplexer in the AC Delco books.

Be aware that if you run the radio without a 10 ohm rear speaker you will burn out the amp in a matter of minutes. Also the fullsize radio won't fit as is in the Beaumont (Tempest) dash without relocating the cooling fins.
