Connecting Carvin Crossover wires:
COLOR
of crossover "jumper" wires
connects to: for frequencies of:
BLUE
BLUE TWEETER (positive + terminal)* - high
YELLOW
YELLOW MIDRANGE (positive + terminal)* - mid
RED
RED WOOFER (positive + terminal)* - low
WHITE
WHITE RETURNS (negative - terminal)* -
*special instructions for connecting Carvin Crossover wires:

The Red, Blue or Yellow wires connect to the positive (+) terminal on the speakers (sometimes labelled in red), and the White "return" wires connect to the negative (-) terminals (sometimes labelled in black or white) of the respective speakers. Remember: associate "RETURN wires" with "NEGATIVE terminals".

Also, some units have two Red wires (and sometimes two Blue as well) and two White returns for those wires, usually in a "Y" configuration. If you only need one Red and/or Blue, and one White of these, just TAPE OFF or CUT & TAPE OFF the extra one, with electrical tape.
