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.
This harness literally made the wiring hookup of new speakers a snap. Saved cutting and re-soldering the leads, in a very tight installation in the dash.
Pros: Simplicity and quality
Excellent value, well made
Pros: Ease of use
Worked perfectly to hook up a pair of Crunch DSX120 speakers in the rear of my '93 Eurovan.
Pros: No hacking of factory wiring
These speaker harnesses made installation of my aftermarket speakers in my Equinox easy. The connections are tight and fit perfect. The sound is crystal clear and it sounds great.
Pros: Easy install without modifying the factory harness
Great item to start your cars sound system with. Adapters worked perfectly so it was a incredibly quick install
Pros: Great sound.
Honestly, it works perfectly and it is simple. You just plug it in and attach it.
Pros: Simple, Easy.
Perfect fit to Porsche 996 wiring harness (2004 cabriolet) for speaker upgrade. Plugs right into the harness. I cut the quick disconnects that were supplied and crimped on a couple of spade connectors as I was wiring to a crossover. If you are going directly from the harness to a replacement speaker the quick disconnects should work just fine.
Pros: Quick clean install - easy to go back to bog stock. Don't have to hack into the harness.
Cons: You don't "need" these but you would have to cut the connector off your old speaker to connect to the harness - or cut into your harness - a no no in my opinion,.
I cant stress this enough that every install should have the speaker wire harness. it makes the install professional and easy.
Pros: attaches to factory electrical connector. extends the length for easier install. gives your install a professional and solid connection for great sound and no issues.
Cons: none. every install should have this product
Fits perfect. Made my speaker installation a snap!
Pros: Price and Fit
Fit perfectly for the new 6.5" Kenwood's in the front door of a 2002 Saturn Vue.
Pros: Fit Price Easy to use
Used on a Volvo V 40. The huge advantage of this product is 1. it fits. 2. it can be easily disconnected and 3. perhaps most importantly, there are No bare wire connections which can short out somewhere down the road.
Pros: Made the connections easy.
Enabled my Kicker speakers to be installed with ease. The connectors matched perfectly with the Porsche Boxster stock equipment.
Pros: Perfect match, no need for splicing connectors. Excellent sound fidelity.
These made for a quick and easy speaker install in my 2004 Saturn Vue.
Love being able to "click" together wires, makes life so much easier
Pros: Fast and easy to install
Cons: None really
This adapter set made the installation of the Alpine SPS-410 speakers into the dash of my 1999 Porsche 911 even easier. Definitely worth the price.
These harnesses make installation a snap. Very nice!
Made installing my Kenwood speakers on my saturn vue a snap
Pros: Easy to use
Fit perfect although the speaker connectors were a tight fit although probably a good thing because there not likely to pop off. just be careful when putting them on so that you don't break the speaker terminal off.
Pros: Perfect fit
Perfect fit in my daughters 2004 Saturn l300. No to cut and splice wires.
Pros: Snug fit on my kenwood speakers. Perfect fit to factory harness. No need to cut any wires
This is probably the quickest way to simplify the installation for any install. I have bought these for all my applications and really takes the pain out of the installation. With these I always get the polarity right on the install. The design on the Jaguar stock connectors gave me a little trouble on a rear speaker. not the connectors fault but the stock plugs design. I always buy these and have them pre connected before I take the speakers out to do the install.
Pros: Simple, fast and guarantees I get the polarity correct.
Cons: They are cheap but more expensive than cutting and splicing the enclosed wires to the stock harness.
Makes connecting the speakers a breeze.
Pros: fits perfectly installs in seconds
Inexpensive and did the job well
Pros: Cheap and simple
Wiring harness made the speaker install very easy.
Pros: simple and easy to use
Perfect fit for boxster dash speakers.
This is the correct speaker adapter for 2001 Porsche Carrera 996, Boxter, etc. Look all over the Internet and Crutchfields the only place I could find. Hopefully they'll update the description to include the cars this fits.
Really helpful on front dash speakers as it's difficult to cut the stock harness, attach connectors, then have enough length to actually attach the speaker. Get these, they're worth it!
Pros: worked perfectly! Plug into existing harness in seconds.
These worked perfectly for me and made the job a success.
Pros: Easy to install
I used these speaker wiring harnesses to connect to the dash and rear side panels of my Porsche 996 without having to splice into the existing factory wiring bundle. The plug end was a perfect match for the Porsche plug and the spades fit tightly to the new replacement JL Audio speakers. Plug and Play!
Pros: Affordable Perfect Fit
Soldering was the way to go,but this is much better
this minor item sure made it clean & easy to install new door mount speakers
Pros: very quick & easy to use
Great product made installing speakers super easy and fast.
Pros: No cutting of wires, Looks pro Fast and clean
Perfect for someone who is not a "hands on type" of person. Took me 25 minutes to change out all four speakers with these guys. Great product!
Pros: Easy, cheap, awesome!
Cons: Why can't everything in this world be this easy!?!?
Made install simple
Crutchfield makes every install I have done so easy because of the help and service that they offer. I will never have any reservations to order from them in the future.

Pros: Included with speaker purchase, simple installation.
Perfect fit for 2003 Saturn L-300. fits all 4 door speakers.
Pros: Fast installation
Cons: Inexpensive connectors may make good connection without manually crimping them.
One of the four harnesses was defective in that it was missing one electrical terminal, so I had to cut and manually solder this harness to the speaker. This was not beyond my skill; however, the main reason I chose Crutchfield was so that I would have an easy installation job.
Cons: The particular item I recieved had a manufacturing defect.
This made the install of the speakers a snap. Fit perfect and matched up perfect to the VW Cabrio 2001 harness.
This kit made installation easy.
Pros: Simple to use.
Cons: No cons.
Nice in connection !..
Wow, installation could not have been easier - saved me HOURS in wiring. Great product.
I put these on and they work well. Super easy and the price was right.
I got these free for speaker connection in my 04 saturn L300. Worked like a charm. Easy peezyy, lemon squeezy.
I recently installed some Alpine speakers in my Boxster and the connectors which were included worked perfectly! My thanks to Crutchfield!!!!
Sent for my Saturn 01 L300 and fit nice and tight on the speakers and plugged right into the old socket, perfect, a breeze.

Doesn't get any easier than this. Plug one end to the factory connector and the other end to your speaker. Good connection, easy to use.
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.
The Crutchfield Car Selector: Please visit the Crutchfield Car Selector for your specific type of vehicle.

Not having to remove the factory connector is going to be a big time saver. [ Martin Feb 06, 2016 ]
Because I know your product will fit correctly on my vehicle [ FRED Jan 18, 2016 ]
Vehicle-specific wiring harness so I don't have to hack my vehicle's wiring. [ Matt Dec 14, 2015 ]
Porsche has proprietary connectors for many of their speakers. This is a great deal. Price without buying speakers is $19.98 for two. Next cheapest price anywhere (not for these) is $34.00. This just makes life easier, no solder removal and rework for the connection. For this purchase, I can rationalize that I only spent $39.99 on the speakers. [ Jamie Dec 04, 2015 ]
