Default Need help with speaker wire colors in 97 Lariat.

I am replacing my factory speakers with Kicker KS 680 and the factory uses a black wire with a purple stripe and the other wire is orange with a red stripe.

Anyone know which one is positive and which is negative?

Thanks man! Either the12volt has the left front and left rear speakers mixed up, or whoever ran the OEM wires in my truck got them mixed up.

Everything is up and running, they sound nice, now I need some bass.
