Black is the right channel, Red is the ground and Green is the left channel.

ok so i tested it a little bit and it seems that green in defineately left but both red and black seem to be interchangeable somehow. It's weird or maybe im just imagining sounds.

Really? The black is the right channel? I can't even test this, I threw the stock cable away.

 

After looking at DJScopes pictures, yeah the red is definitely the ground, and the black is the right signal. I guess I should have looked that over before posting, but NORMALLY the red is the right signal, green/blue is the left signal and black/copper would be the ground. 

 

Now that I'm thinking about it, chinese/japanese colors are kind of weird the way they use them compared to what we do here in the states. The company I work for was bought out by a japanese company (I know Takstar is chinese) and have some safety signs for indicating emergency stop buttons on machines in case there is a problem, and the STOP button is green and the start button is red. Kind of the opposite of what we would do here.

You think that's bad. The wiring loom for my car's head unit consists of 14 cores all of which are the same colour. SMH. It took me like 4 hours to install my new head unit. Such a headache. It's a Hyundai by the way. Surprised?

I've done all my own headunit installs, and I can totally relate. All the wires being the same color would be pretty stressful. I once had to do an install on a 1988 Oldsmobile Toronado with a separate tape player and equalizer, that was a nightmare.

Yeah.. it was pretty bad. I hope my next car comes with an ISO harness.

My Veloster Turbo was a lemon. The check engine light kept going on, and the front end couldn't hold up on the streets of the land of cheese and beer. Front end parts kept coming loose. It was a radical car, and fun while it lasted, but I had to get a more "grown folk" car. I Got a Hyundai Tucson Limited with all the bells and whistles. I'm really liking it so far.

 

As for changing out the radio, hell no, never. Too much is intertwined with the blue link. I would destroy that car if I tried taking out the head deck lol.

I just got a pair of the HM5 pads for my HyperX Cloud (Takstar rebrand) and have a question.  Has anyone tried to carefully remove the "rim" on the back side of the pads?  Here is a picture pointing to what I mean. http://www.zone15.com/hm5pad.jpg .  Basically with the pads the way they are, it seems the lip sorta bunches up when sliding the edges on and it doesn't look quite as clean.

Removing it would propably do no harm. But I guess it will be more likely to break if you ever plan on using the pads with large circular headphones.

Only reason I'm really scared to remove that extra bit of material is the fear that it will tear trying to put it back on afterwards.  Guess I will just leave it for now.  When I get a chance I'll have to post a picture of the HM5 pads on the HyperX Cloud, the red pads look really sharp on it.

It shouldn't be a problem. I had to cut about 80% of the "rim" from the HM5 pads to make it fit on the DR150s and it doesn't tear of anything. It starts to crack a bit from pulling and stuff but that's normal without cutting it.

Mine is a '04 Hyundai Grandeur. Don't get me wrong. I love the car. Even if it's got some issues and teething problems, it's what gives the car character and makes it more personal. For me, that's much more important that a brand new car. As long as you know how your car reacts while it's going, them you'll know when something doesn't feel right. I've had to fix a couple of things on it but it drives like a dream. But I couldn't complain if I wanted to, I only paid AU$1500 for it!
