    Forgive me if this is a relatively dumb question, but I have no experience with wiring of aftermarket speakers.

    I bought this tundra used, and the previous owner had a Taco Tunes system installed. The red wire shown somehow came detached from the battery, so now the bass sounds as if the speaker is blown out if it’s barely hanging on, and if it’s completely detached then you only hear sound from the truck speaker on the center of the dash.

    If anyone has any ideas on how this should properly be reconnected, I’d be really thankful for the help.

    Sure, and welcome to the forum..:D

    I second @Shanet421 (nice clamp) suggestion on a proper post clamp, although it depends on how much slack is in the cable.
    Don't know why I didn't think of it before but you wouldn't need a crimper at all with a different clamp.

    I use this one.
    Amazon.com: Vgate Lead Acid Battery Terminal Clamps, 8AWG up to 4/0(XL) AWG Gauge, 12-Way Connectors, Positive and Negative (+/-)(Pair) for SAE/DIN/EN Tapered Top Post : Automotive

    Yeah that’s really helpful @1lowlife
    I think having the different post clamp would simplify things and be more functional. Thanks for the link I’ll check that out
