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, then check here for a list of parts. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

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.

Speaker Wire Adapter

It's a speaker wire adapter. What can I really say about it? Terminals fit on the speaker and the plug fit with the car wire. Five seconds worth of work. For reference, it was for my 2001 GMC Sierra C3.

Speaker Quick Connects Were Worthless

Written By Brandon, Texas on Tuesday, July 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The female quick connects were WAY too small to fit on the Rockford Fosgate P1675, and those speakers have normal sized terminals. Honestly I've never seen a speaker with terminals small enough to accommodate the Metra 71-014C. Go with a different brand, or be prepared to buy new quick connects before you attempt installing these in your vehicle.
Pros:
Factory end of the harness matched up with my 2008 Chevrolet Silverado perfectly.
Cons:
Female quick connects will either have to be replaced or modified to work with some aftermarket speakers.

A little short

Written By Bob M, Hillsborough, NJ on Thursday, July 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Did the job it was made to do but about and inch to short on my 2002 Chevy Express Van installation. It reached the factory connector but was a bit to short to snap onto the plastic holder on the door. The OEM plastic holder is there to keep the connector from rattling. I used some silicone glue to hold it from moving.
Pros:
Works fine, like the terminals being marked + and -
Cons:
Had a little trouble get the connector on the speaker. Takes a bit of dexterity. I was afraid I would break them off. Just take it slow.

This is a really easy way to adapt new speakers in your GM vehicle. This making adding them painless (no soldering/crimping) and means you don't have to hack up your stock harness. I highly recommend these if you're going to install aftermarket speakers. I have no complaints about these, and the price is really reasonable.

I got these wiring harnesses free with my order of a pair of Kenwood 6 1/2" speakers for the front doors of my 2003 impala but when i tried to use them i found that they did not plug into my factory plug ins. Later when i was replacing my rear deck speakers i found that the wiring harnesses did actually fit the plugs back there.
Pros:
Plugs right in to the factory plugs in the rear deck.
Cons:
Did not fit for the place that i had initially needed them for.
