Please help me.

I have recently started to mess around with some electrical circuits using toy cars an example is i wired tail lights into one. Well now I am trying to wire speakers into an r/c truck and I have 2 speakers I got out of a toy piano they are like tweeter speakers what I need help with is figuring out how to attach a 3.5mm plug to the 2 wires coming out of the speakers. Please and thank you. If you would like pictures of the speakers or of the 3.5mm plugs I have just tell me and ill email them or somethin.

Buy two short mono extension cords with male 3.5mm plugs on them. Cut the plugs off leaving a lead as long as you will need. Strip back the ends of the wires, remove the existing wires that are on the speakers now and solder the new leads to the speaker terminals or if you can't remove the existing wires, solder them to the ends of the wires that are already attached to the speaker. If the connections are exposed, tape them or use heat shrink tubing to insulate the splices.

Note that the wire conductors may not be two insulated wires. One may be an insulated wire and one a bare wire. It doesn't make any difference which wire goes to which terminal on the speaker. But, just for conformity sake, wire both the speakers with the same wire to the same terminal on each speaker.

(Moderator .... shouldn't this be in another forum?)
