    ..Airial wire!?? .. i think..? help asap!

    Hi guys, i recently installed sum kenwood 6x9s to my 3dr sxi. and think ive chopped up the airial wire by mistake...

    i simply split the original rear speaker wires to the 6x9s so all work, although cudnt be arsed with the hassle of taking out the whole panel. so i followed the wire ov what i thort was from the left speaker and cut it, although when i looked inside the cable it wasnt so lol. took me 10mins to figure out what the cable actualy was. and im prity surw its the airial as now my radio doesnt pick up frequency...

    the cable itself has another single wire within it protected by plastic..
    obviously this is harder to simple connect back together.

    just wondering if the single wire will make any difference if i simple put it back together with sum electrical tape!!!?????

    or will i need a hole new cable..??
    any advice or help much appreciated!!!! thanx.

    In my opinion as long as all the wires are touching and secured together it should still work. It might be worth stripping the cable at each end and trying to solder or twist it back together then use electrical tape so it dosnt all come apart again.

    I found an ebay listing for a new aerial that comes with the complete wire on a buy it now for a tenner so if re-connecting it dosnt work then you can always replace it.

    If its roughly the same as coaxiel cable that you use with tv's then its importaint that the two different wires dont touch, thats why one is covered in plastic. So try stripping the cable, soldering or twisting the middle bit together, then tape that up then solder or twist the rest and tape that up too. if it dosent work then you havent lost anything and its time for the replacement.
