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

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.

The folks that make these are pros at exact fitment and connectability. The connectors plugged in perfect and allowed me to keep a clean install with my aftermarket speakers.

total rip off, doesn't fit at all, not even a little bit.
Pros:
they have wire attached to the harness, that's a plus.
Cons:
nothing fit, had to cut it up and re work the connections by soldering them. Took longer than just wiring them from scratch.

Speaker Wiring Harnesses

Written By GFxRocket, Raleigh, NC on Friday, January 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This speaker wiring harness made installation a snap. I was told it is better to solder the connections but since I have a stereo that puts out 50 W per channel and no amplifier it doesn't seem to matter. Not that I am afraid to solder as I spent many years working in electronics but if it's not necessary why bother. If I was running a high power amp I'm sure I would have taken the time to solder everything
Pros:
Easy to use. Just plug and go
Cons:
None

None!

Crutchfield makes it so easy to upgrade old car stereo from the golden oldies. I have a 96 Pathfinder and was expecting a whole day of installation. Took me only 2 hours to completely install front and rear speakers with the instructions they provided and the kits. I will buy from no other company !

Not Compatible with All Speakers

Written By Mike Ryz, New York, NY on Friday, April 20, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I'm a big fan of the installation gear that Crutchfield provides (one of the major reasons I like to order from them rather than elsewhere), so I was disappointed when the terminals on these adapters were too small for the speakers I had ordered at the same time. I was forced to cut them off and then twist them onto the speakers and heat-shrink in place.
Pros:
- Connect easily and security to car harness.
Cons:
- Wrong size terminals for speakers I ordered.

Speaker Wiring Harness with 01 Nisan Frontier

Written By JSF, Costal VA on Saturday, November 27, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit makes the speaker installation about as easy as you could expect. No
soldering is required and both ends of the harness plug into their mating
connectors perfectly. I used a large cable tie to secure the wires to the
speaker magnet to prevent any movement. Overall, this harness is an absolute
necessity unless you like to solder.

Not much to say. They plugged in to the existing vehicle harness perfectly, plugged in to the speaker and did the job.

Sure made it easier than splicing wires! I would definately get them again (especially since they came free with the speakers).
Thanks Crutchfield - another great reason to buy here.

97 nissan speaker install

Written By Jared, Salt Lake City, UT on Thursday, May 27, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had a little difficulty with these speaker wires. I first appeared that they would work great. It was nice that they plugged into my cars wiring system. When I plugged them into the new speaker, the connections were a little loose. I had to compress the connectors to make them tighter. Then it was a little too tight causing me to break off one of the pieces of metal on the speaker. I had to cut off the connector and solder the wire right onto the speaker. Then it worked great! If you buy this, I recommend you put the connectors onto the speaker, then compress them down in place.

I believe the spec's for this part say "For ALL Nissan & Infiniti models 2000-2006", or something like that.

Well, if you have an 02 Infiniti Q45? These don't work! Close, but not close enough.
