Metra 71-049 adapters

These harnesses will allow you to plug your new speakers into the factory connectors present in the speaker openings for your vehicle. Two adapters are included for a pair of speakers.

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. You can also crimp the wires if you prefer - see "Accessories."

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if these adapters are compatible with your vehicle. Warranty: 60 days.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The speaker and stereo connections provided by Crutchfield for no cost, are obviously a better deal than paying $20.00 or more for the set elsewhere. They fit perfectly, and allow for a clean, quick and easy installation, and/or removal, without cutting into tiny wires inside a dashboard.
Pros:
Perfect fit at no cost.
Cons:
None.

They fit perfect. Just plug into existing truck plug and then plug on to speaker blades that match blade size (One small and one large for polarity. You can not screw this up. Just be carefull sliding blade connector on. Support the back on the speaker connection with a finger and do not aply to much pressure or it might break. These plugs cost almost twenty dollars at another retailer but comes free with Crunchfield speakers.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I contemplated clipping off the factory connectors and crimping on spade connectors but, I was somewhat concerned about inadvertently reversing the polarity of the speaker wires as well as permanently altering the factory wiring. Then I found this adapter on the Crutchfield website - - I ordered it on a Wednesday night - - it arrived Friday morning! The installation was way too easy - - I installed both speakers in 15 minutes!!
Pros:
Ease of installation. Quality. Factory wiring remains intact.

No way, no how, could I get the separate wires to connect to my speaker connecters. I tried to open the harness connecter with a screwdriver only to find out they still won't work.
Crutchfield response on Tuesday, December 04, 2012
The plugs on our adapters are smaller than the unusually large terminals on the Boston Acoustics speakers. There are two ways to solve this problem: either splice a small section of the wire supplied with the speakers onto the end of each adapter, or crimp larger plugs onto the adapters.

I am the guy that thought you had to solder everything, but these connectors fit really tight and made the install go quite a bit quicker.

I was able to change out my dashboard speakers with the use of these. It made it much easier to fit my speakers Polk 3 1/2 into the dashboard without any problems. Thjanks crutchfield

The adapter fit fine, but one of the spade connectors was missing. I know
Crutchfield would have replaced it, but I had already removed the old speaker
and it was easier to solder the wire to the spade tab on the speaker. Worked
fine from there.

The harnesses made replacing the OEM speakers a snap. Combination of
Crutchfield's harnesses, mounting brackets, and excellent instructions made
replacing the speakers in my Dodge Dakota a breeze.

The negative connector did not work on spade connector of Boston Acoustic speakers. I had to cut it off and solder directly to speaker.

Good fit, broken wire 5 years later

Written By Bryan, Atlanta, GA on Friday, July 17, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The harness adapter fit well on my Polk db650's in the rear and Polk 6x9's up front. One negative lead on an adapter in the rear broke at the white connector after 5 years of use. This isn't a terrible life span, but disappointing to pull door panels for a broken accessory.

I decided to try Infinity speakers front and rear, so I got 2 more adapters with my latest order. Easy fit on the rear 6.5" Reference speakers. I had to cut off the spade connectors for the 6x9 Kappas screw in connector.

I'll be pleased if I get 5 more years out of my truck and hopefully the new connectors.

The negative (smaller) connector on this wiring adapter did not fit the smaller spade connection on the polk audio 4x6 plate speaker I also purchased from Crutchfield. I had to cut it off and add on my own connector that would fit the spade on the speaker. Not plug and play in my case. Thumbs down guys.

This harness made installation a breeze. I was able to hook up my new speakers in my 05 Wrangler's sound bar without soldering or crimping a single wire. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks Crutchfield.

Went to 3 electronic stores in town for a speaker harness that would fit my '04 Wrangler. I was told that the manufacturers didn't make them yet and I would have to splice into the wires. One installer even gave me the disconnects, taps and speaker wire, and showed me what to do! I was at my desk ready to start assembly when I remembered Crutchfield. You had the harness I needed. It snapped into place easily and securely and I was done with installation in a matter of minutes.

They Work

Worked great on my '05 Jeep TJ Wrangler. Leads are a little tough to slip on the aftermarket Boston Acoustics speakers I bought. Might be easier with other speakers though.
