Overview

These harnesses allow you to plug your new speakers into the factory connectors present in your vehicle's speaker openings.

These harnesses allow you to plug your new speakers into the factory connectors present in your vehicle's speaker openings.

Note: Some aftermarket speakers have terminals that are wider than this harness's slide-on connectors. You may need to widen the harness's female slide-on connectors, or use the slide terminals that may be included with the speakers. If you need to connect your new speaker's connectors to the Crutchfield harness, soldering is best, and crimping is also very popular - see "Accessories."

Includes Crutchfield's 60-Day Total Satisfaction Guarantee

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Replaced my old stock with these. Much better and worth the extra work.

Jonathan from Kingsport, TN on 5/5/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these adaptors on my 1986 Pontiac Fiero when I replaced the factory dash speakers. I had to cut the crimped ends off and solder the wires to the speakers. These adaptors allowed me to keep my car's factory wiring in tact. Very good product worth the money. They also arrived the day after ordering so I was impressed with that. Best of all, I told the customer service guy that I was buying these for speakers I bought from another retailer. At no time did he try to discourage my purchase elsewhere or try to push me into buying Crutchfield products instead. I REALLY appreciated that!! I wish I could have bought my speakers from Crutchfield just to show my appreciation but unfortunately, Crutchfield didn't have what I was looking for.

The harness worked perfectly. It took hardly any time to plug them into the speaker and the wires.

Pros: Very simple, positive and negative wire connectors were different sizes so it was easy to determine which wire went where.

Cons: For my specific vehicle, the harness wires were too long.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced the decrepit original speakers in my 1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited. These used a unique speaker wire connector. I have plenty of experience fabricating connectors, soldering, etc., but it would easily have taken twenty minutes or more to do this for four speakers. These harnesses were exact fits between the Jeep connector and the new speakers and I didn't have to cut, strip, crimp, or solder a thing. Fantastic.

Cons:

Does the job!

First let me say that my Crutchfield adviser Andy was awesome. He not only put together a package for me that would fit my JEEP, he made sure that I had everything I needed to make the install smooth. I will never shop anywhere else for Audio/Video equipment. These connected my factory Infinity Gold speaker wiring directly to the new speakers it took less than 5 minutes to install the new speakers with these adapters. This made it so easy and Crutchfield gives them to you for free with your speakers AWESOME.

Daniel from New Jersey on 4/6/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These connectors made the installation so much easier. I didn't have to cut any wires. Without these you will have to cut. They are a no brainer. My Jeep had these special connectors I have never seen before on the front and back speakers. Saves time and makes for a more professional installation.

Pros:

Very Convenient

Herbert from Tyrone, GA on 3/26/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield's free harness adapters are very convenient for novice installers like myself. They eliminate all taping and soldering and fit tightly. However, there was a misfit in one of the four resulting in some low performance from its speaker. I might have to replace it our splice the line to make it work better.

These adaptors would have fit perfectly except due to the wiring on the two way speakers I bought I had to modify the leads on the adaptors. The speaker wires didn't have blade connectors to plug into the adaptors, so I had to use a crimp connector, but they worked fine. Thanks!

Features

Crutchfield Speaker Harness: Crutchfield speaker harnesses prevent you from having to cut your vehicle's factory speaker plugs when replacing your factory speakers with aftermarket car speakers. The Crutchfield speaker harness features two female quick-slide connectors on one end to attach directly to your new aftermarket car speakers & a proprietary Molex connector on the other end that connects to your vehicle's factory speaker plug.

Quick-Slide Connectors: The Crutchfield speaker harness is equipped with a large (positive) & small (negative) female quick-slide terminal. These quick-slide terminals fit directly onto most aftermarket car stereo speaker terminals (slight crimping may be required). In rare cases that the quick-slide terminals do not fit your car speaker terminals, you will need to solder the Crutchfield speaker harness to your aftermarket speaker's terminals or replace the quick-slide connectors on the Crutchfield speaker harness with the correct size terminal.

Note: Installation tools, hardware, & accessories are not included & sold separately. Please see the Accessories tab for recommendations & availability.

Quick-Slide Terminal Measurements: The positive female quick-slide terminal measures 0.205" (inner width), while the negative female quick-slide terminal measures 0.115" (inner width).

Wire Code Chart: Two identical Crutchfield speaker harnesses are included.
