These harnesses will allow you to plug your new speakers into the factory connectors present in the speaker openings for your vehicle.
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 made speaker replacement extremely simple. No hassle with wiring. Just attach and hook up
Fit fine on the Ford side but had to cut and modify to fit Rockford Fosgate purchase
Pros: Fit Ford factory connection
Cons: Did not fit Rockford Fosgate side.
I am pleased that this was included with the purchase and I did not have to buy seperatly.
I've always hated cutting and splicing wire. This kits always have come in handy.
Makes speaker install super easy with factory harness.
Pros: Super easy plug-n-play.
The factory connector was fine , the spade lugs don't fit on the Rockford Fosgate speakers - I had to cut off the spades & ended up soldering them on
Pros: Connection to factory wiring is easy
Cons: Have to cut off speaker spades , & replace with correct size for the Fosgate speakers - Should snd the correct size spades with the kit
this product has been a life saver when doing your oun installation.
Pros: easy to use and connection to factory wiring is literally a snap
Made installation easy! Just as described.
these were extremely handy to have HOWEVER the red tips that attach to speaker were to small and had to cut off and replace with bigger ones
Pros: handy to have for hookup
Cons: tips that fit to speaker need to be reconfigured. the red one is to small
Did not fit the speakers
Pros: Plugged into factory speaker harness.
Cons: Spades to small to fit onto speaker. I spread the positive terminal with a screw driver so it would slide onto the speaker spade, and put a bigger negative spade on the harness so that it would slide onto the speaker spade.
These connectors came free as a special, they are needed for a clean connection. But... the skeaker side connection Didnt fit speaker! I had to cut off "TOO small" connection and attach bigger connectors. 5 star for free, 1 star for not fitting,... so I gave it 3 stars.
Pros: convienant to hook to vehicle
Cons: Had to attached bigger hardware
Great for easy wiring on new speakers. Don't have to cut stock wiring and work with short wires when installing aftermarket speakers.
Pros: Simple plug and play easy to revert to stock speakers of need be.
As an automotive technician I have changed many speakers, but I have never had the privilege of using vehicle specific harnesses. These fit perfect and save e alot of time.
Went right in. Simple.
The only issue I had with this harness was the the negative was too small to fit onto the speaker tab. I had to cut the existing one off and replace it with a slightly bigger clip.
Pros: Crutchfield supplied them for free.
Cons: Negative clip was too small for the speaker tab.
Worked great for 2013 F-150 Lariat super crew, did not have to modify anything. Paid a little more for it, all in all it worked like advertised!
Pros: good fit
Work exactly as advertised. Converted the Ford audio wire clips to compatible solder free push on tips needed for speaker and Voila, clear beautiful music and just a few seconds
The adapters fit great to the car. The problem was on the speaker side. The negative terminal was not even close to fitting the Rockford Fosgate Punch P1683 6 x 8-Inches Full Range 3-Way Speakers that ordered (these connectors were sent with the speakers via Crutchfield automatically). After doing some reading other posts, it seems Crutchfield is aware these do not fit Rockford Fosgate and some other speaker manufactures who use larger terminals. This turned into a real pain at 1AM when I had all the door panels off. Not really convenient to go to your local electrical supply store to find the proper terminals to crimp onto the connectors. I could have soldered, but I wanted to keep with all crimps for my install, that is why we got the adapters right?
Pros: Fit car electrical fine
Cons: Did not fit Rockford Fosgate. Also beware of the added speaker wire length. This is not an issue with the adapter, but Ford had the original speakers designed with a side entry plug and the right length wire. When doing after market with this adapter and the terminal facing the rear, the wiring can get caught up in power windows. Pay attention where the extra wire length of these adapters are going.
Fits like it should. Saved me from running new speaker wire.
Worked exactly as advertised.
Pros: Perfect OEM integration.
Perfect fit and match. Installed within seconds.
Pros: Fit factory plugs securely without any modifications required.
Not much to say. Unplug your old speakers and plug these into the existing wiring harness when you install your new ones. Easy-peasy!
These came included with my speakers and made installation that mush easier! Perfect fit too.
Pros: Great match to car connector.
These fit factory type speakers but speakers such as rockford fosgate punch 1683 it will not fit the negative/ground and you need to buy the female leads and snip this one off. I did order them and unfortunately Crutchfield failed to send!! I had to snip and wire it to speaker to get it going but that is not right and either needs solder or the clip. You can get the 10 pack of female clips from Crutchfield for cheap and trust me order it! All bad reviews online are same problem. The plug and play makes it a snap but these won't fit good speakers with bigger negative terminals so you must buy the female clips.
Pros: Connection to Ford Factory assembly takes 3 seconds, just snap it on
Cons: Terminal is too small as I mentioned on the negative side.
Made the installation of my new speakers very easy. Just plug and play. Highly recommended.
Pros: Plug and Play...very easy.
Just what the doctor ordered! No muss, no fuss and the price is definitely right! I've seen complaints that the wires are revered for some applications, that's a much easier fix that most seem to realize, there's no need to rewire, just need a small tool to release the internal connectors on the plug end (opposite from the spade connector/speaker end), once free you can swap their position and you're ready to install.
Pros: Makes an easy job easier
As most said better in my 2010 f150 than stock but light on bass. Good fit and a good step up from stock
Pros: Fit, treble, highs
Cons: Limited bass
The wire harness was easy to use and connected perfectly.
Pros: Worked as designed
These little items are super. They completely eliminate all the fumbling with connector adaptation and solder.
Pros: Their inclusion was a brilliant idea on someone's part.
Cons: There are none. But be sure to hunt up panel removal on Youtube. It'll take ALL the mystery out of the project.
So easy. Plug into speakers. Plug into harness. You are done.
Direct plug and play... what more can you ask for? 2006 Ford Explorer
Pros: Ease of Install
Still had to cut this adapter to fit on a terminal that would fit the negative post of my Fosgate speaker, so I could have cut lead to Ford proprietary connector and done two terminal installs instead. Not the time saver I expected.
Pros: Has Ford OEM female connector side.
Cons: Still have to install a connector or two to match terminal posts on your speakers.
Great item, Made my speaker install effortless. fits perfectly.
Pros: Included with speaker purchase.
perfect.....made installation easy
Fits perfect. Connections nice and tight. Fits factory harness perfect. One of them came in broken, emailed Crutchfield and in less then 24 hours I get an email with a tracking number for the replacement package. No charge and two days later it's here. Awesome knowing that weather the purchase is big or small this company puts us first.
Pros: Perfect fit and function.
Cons: When you order speakers these come free. I tried ordering these.... And no free speakers. Lol
Great fit, good wire plenty of length.
Pros: Good heavy wire
Cons: No complaints
Perfect fit and easy to use
Pros: simple to use
Used with replacement speakers, made the install Easy.
Pros: Easy install
They came recommended by the Crutchfield team and I'm so glad that I got them. They make the installation 1,000 times easier and I know that the wire connections are going to stay that way. They came free with the speakers so there is no reason not to use them.
Pros: Make installation a breeze.
Perfect fit. Could not be easier to use.
Pros: Perfect harness. Nasy to use. No problems. Excellent quality of materials and workmanship.
make a speaker replacement a breeze. Buy your speakers from Crutchfield just so you can get these for free!
Pros: makes an install super easy
These conversion connectors worked perfectly!!
Pros: Ease of Use
Makes wirring speakers idiot proof. No reasonable way to switch polarity or have a poor contact. Just plug into speaker then plug into vehicle.
Pros: Very easy to plug in speakers.
Cons: Adds length to wirring that may not be needed.
a little disappointed with this hardness, kind of hard to make them work with the old speaker connector
Worked great on my 2012 F150
Pros: Works great
Worked exactly as it was supposed to. Correct polarity as opposed to the competitor product that has the same connection. Thanks for doing your reserch.
Pros: Exact Fit, Correct polarity.
Easy to use, no cutting needed, no splicing, no connectors needed
Pros: Clip on to speakers and plug and go
Cons: Very tight(Good for connection) be careful not to break the speaker
This speaker wire harness came free with my purchase of speakers and made installation of speakers a breeze. It was simple plug and play. Would definitely recommend these. Best part of all was they were free!
Pros: Just plug one end into speaker harness and plug other side with 2 wires into speaker.
Love these connectors. Makes install easy and quick. No cutting of the stock harness is great.
Pros: Easy. Simply. Quick. Free with speaker purchase!
Clipped right in to factory wiring, no modifications
Must have make everything much easier
Would have given them a five, but one arrived without a clip on the end. I soldered it directly to the speaker, so no harm no foul. Otherwise great harnesses.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: One was missing a clip.
Pros: It did exactly what I needed it to do. Easy to use.
Cons: Nothing at this time.
Made install a lot easier.
Pros: Did not have to cut into the factory wiring.
This product matches up very well to my '08 F150 and made installing the new speakers a breeze. I did run into one issue, and am not sure if it was user induced [me], the adaptor or the factory harness. On one of the speakers, after installing this plug, removing and reinstalling [fitting baffles and other stuff] one of the metal 'prongs' got shoved backward, out of the plastic base. I may have been holding the adaptor at an angle when I forced it. I don't know. It was a simple fix- I plugged the plastic base into place and the used a small flathead screwdriver to push the wire 'pin' forward, back into the base until it bottomed out on the factory wiring harness: problem solved! I taped it off to keep it from wandering out at a later date. I would give the set a 4.6 if I could, but am only able to pick 4 or 5. Due to my one weird issue, it had to be a 4. Full disclosure: it installed/removed/installed these plugs in all 4 doors and I ran into this problem only once, in one of the 4 plastic plugs. So- NOT the normal experience.
Pros: Matches factory loom exactly as required. Makes life easy. Allows return to factory speakers, if I ever give up my truck.
Cons: May run into a small problem with plugs being pushed out back of adaptor plastic plug, but is an easy fix.
With this harness the hardest part of the installation is simply getting the door panels off. After you know how to do one the other is easy. I was able to swap a speaker in 30 minutes just being my usual slow self.
Pros: Plug and play, can always return to stock as no factory cables are spliced.
Made install much easier.
Pros: Easy to use.
The factory connections fit flawlessly. Easy solution to fitting factory connections to an after market speaker.
Pros: It was free!
The speakers sound really good. I had 1 hardware break on me but had to splice 1 spaker. Sounds really really good tho
Pros: The hardware made life easy
Cons: The crimps wasn't that good keeped falling out so had to use different 1s.
Glad that Crutchfield throws these in, saves some soldering time.
Although several sites sells a very similar wiring harness they say is also for Fords, they have the positive and negative wires reversed. It's nice to see Crutchfield cares enough to get it right. On my 2014 Taurus, they were a perfect fit. Very happy.
Perfect finishing touch to the mounting and installation of my new speakers
Pros: Just the right tool I needed to hook my speakers up.
While i was not really happy with the speakers I purchased this harness made instalation super easy. The fact that they where freeade it even better. Awesome!
Pros: Made install easy and they where free.
Makes so east to install
Pros: Easy to use
These adapters make installing speakers too easy.
Pros: Makes installing aftermarket speakers very easy.
Cons: I wish they made adapters that would make changing my car's oil just as easy.
No need to cut, splice, and solder with these harnesses, they are a direct plug and play into the Ford wiring inside the doors of my F150. Would recommend to solder the spades to the speakers, though... just for a better connection.
These adapters are the deal! Makes install a snap.
Pros: Simple and easy
Cons: None at all
Made the install very simple, but later noticed I had a speaker not working. When I pulled the speaker, the wiring in this harness was not connected to the plug. The silver contacts pulled out. They slide freely when re-inserted. Contacted Crutchfield, but they refused to do anything since it's been more than 60 days.
Cons: Poor construction
Very easy to install , shipped fast and Crutchfield's customer service was extremely helpful. Top notch experience.
Replaced all my speakers in 2014 mustang gt premium . Snapped right in place. This made things so much easier . Before I found this product I was contemplating not changing my speakers out and keeping the subpar shaker500 speakers because I didn't want to splice my wires . And these are the correct polarity also . Now my stereo sounds amazing . The tech I talked to was very nice , courteous and very helpful. Shipping was fast . It was here the exact day they said it was going to be here . 1000 times satisfied customer . Crutchfield has all my business from now on .
Pros: 1. These are the correct polarity unlike the ones on other websites . 2. Plug and play adaptors so no messy wire splicing . 3. Very fair price . 4. Easy to use 5. Packaging was great (no huge box you would normally get from other companies )
Cons: No cons at all .
Made install a snap with no modifications
Pros: worked perfect.
Great product, easy to use, and you don't have to cut into your factory wiring harness! However, Two of the four of these, that I received had one of the wires, 'drop out' of the plug. I had to push each wire back in, and use electrical tape, to hold the wires in place. I have used these, numerous times, this was the first time I had any issue
Pros: Nice to not have to cut into my factory wiring harness.
Cons: Inconsistent quality.
Pros: perfect fit
Perfect fit and accurate
Pros: Simple and easy use worked great
Replaced 2014 Ford F250 crew cab front speakers. Speakers are Polk DXI571. Speaker wiring harnesses mated with truck harness and speaker tabs perfectly with no modifications necessary.
Pros: Fits perfectly
worked as needed
Pros: Easy to use 2007 Crown Vic P71
Easy to install, work great. Thanks Crutchfield!
Fit perfectly. Needed to use a little force to join the connectors, but once they slid together they fit well.
The cable works fine, much easier than soldering, my only complaint is the wires pop out of the plastic housing really easily. I called Crutchfield about it, and they recommended using hot glue to fix it which makes sense to me. Considering they gave this to me for free I really can't complain too much, but just keep the glue idea in mind. I also had to tape these against the inside of the door of my Ford Escape to prevent the window from rubbing, since this adds length to the speaker wires.
Pros: It works, it is free with speaker purchase
Cons: Wires popped out of plastic housing
Would not fit unless metal part of the wire came out, then I had to shove them back in.
Cons: both wire prongs came out and had to check other adapter to make sure I reinserted prongs ( + - ) wires back into their respective place.
Very good product
Pros: Easy to use
Pros: Works very well
Great item made installation a breeze. Snapped right into the stock connection no issues.
Pros: Easy to use, fits perfect, secure connection
These wiring harness adapters work very well. They make it possible to make the speaker connections a "plug and play". No cutting or spicing.
Pros: Plug and Play
Cons: I had to do it.
The adapter harness did not work. One of the wires would not even stay in the plug.
Cons: The adapter harness did not work. One of the wires would not even stay in the plug.
These connections are great plug and play. Makes Installation a breeze and you don't have to cut factory wires.
Pros: Great product for ease install.
Perfect adapter for speakers to harness,
Pros: Fits perfect and tight.
Cons: A bit too long.
Great product, hooks right up to factory connector
A whole lot easier than splicing wires. Crutchfield did not have 2013 listed on their database for Mustangs but the 2010 was a direct fit.
Got these for free when I bought the speakers. Makes installation very easy. Just plug and play.
Very easy to use and no cutting.
Great fit. Plug right in.
Pros: Easy to use
Made install easy
Very simple and quick way to connect to your factory systems connectors. Just be careful not to wiggle the wire out of the connector.
Pros: Quick and easy.
Cons: Be sure the wires are fully set in the housing and test before installing panels.
Easy to wire in and hook up. Also came with instructions and a customer service number Which I used and Crutchfield team was very helpful and easy to talk too. Thanks.
Harness worked perfectly...took speakers from 1996 Mercury to 2005 Mercury....Adapters worked perfectly......
Pros: perfect fit
Quick and easy. Exactly what you'd expect from Crutchfield
Pros: three connections an you're good to go.
Perfect fit, easy install.
Pros: Three quick connections and done.
Works as advertised. No cutting, no soldering, no splicing - just plug it in and it works!
Pros: Cheap, works great, easy to use
Made installation a breeze. The spade connectors were a little too tight on a couple of stabs but overall very nice.
Pros: Snapped into factory harness, no modification needed for wiring.
Cons: Couple of the spade connectors were a bit too tight.
Made install that much faster
These little harness adapters helped to make the install of any speaker a breeze. If your vehicle has unique speaker connectors, like in most Fords, this adapter harness will save you some time hooking up your new speakers and also makes it a lot cleaner plug-n-play install.
Pros: Plug-N-Play, fits factory connectors for an easier installation.
Cons: Out of 4 of these adapter harnesses that I used on an install recently, one of two pins on one of the connectors pushed out and would not stay locked into the connector. I feel this may have been a fluke, but thought I needed to mention it.
Installed my new speakers in my 06 F150 0. These plugged right in. Only problem I had was one if terminals in the truck side of harness pushed out and wouldn't lock back in. Crutchfield sent a new one right away.
Pros: Perfect fit Connector grip tight to speaker terminals
Cons: Truck side of harnesses are a little difficult to connect.
perfect fit did not have to cut factory wires
It was great that Crutchfield provided these harnesses with the speakers I bought. It made installation very easy. However, one of them fell apart during installation. It took me a few minutes to get it back together, but it wasn't really hard to do. Just annoying.
Pros: Makes installation much easier.
Cons: One of them fell apart during installation.
Simple plug into my 14' ford f150 speaker connector. Worth the price over splicing and soldering wires.
Pros: Easy NO wire cutting Free with speaker purchase
Perfect fit as expected
Pros: Quality product
Made connection a snap
Quick and easy install plus it was free
The most valuable part in the box. I never even needed to reference the instructions. Probably not recommended but that's how it went.
Pros: Idiot proof install. I'm a fireman and am confident even a cop could handle it.
Cons: Absolutely zero.
Made job easy, good fit
Fit factory plug perfectly.Push on connector was loose on speaker, tried to pinch tighter did not work, so i cut them off and soldered them on.
Easy to use but make sure you hold the wires when plugging in or they may come out as other reviews said, I double checked them before installing door panel, I have had no issues after I double checked them
Cons: Make sure you hold the wires so the don't come out
Pros: Perfect connection to factory wiring
The pins pushed out easily with these connectors!! You really have to hold the wires tight behind the connector when plugging them in. I wasn't happy with the quality. Now I'm very unhappy. Might right rear speaker isn't working. (Probably came loose) Was going to get a new set before pulling the door apart again. But.... for the price I'd have to pay, No way! I guess I will just solder the wires like an above post mentioned. That's what I used to do before I got the "free and easy connectors"
Cons: Not fast. When you have to do the job twice!!
Easy to install. Just plug and play
Pros: Plug and play.
Used this adapter to connect JVC CS-V6837 speakers to 2006 Ford F150 front door wires. Plug and Play, just as expected.
Pros: Plug and Play
The easiest way to connect aftermarket speakers with factory wiring.
Pros: connected in seconds
Pros: Just a snap and finish. ....
It's very helpful that Crutchfield includes the necessary wiring for your specific vehicle application. The harness plugged right in to the new speakers and the harness in my door. Very simple installation!
Pros: Everything's included with Crutchfield!
This made the install in my 2011 F-150 truly plug and play and the were free with purchase of my speakers
Pros: Plug and play, free
Makes replacing speakers in a 2013 ford f150 a breeze
Pros: perfect fit
Fit the factory connectors perfectly. A lot better than having to cut the wires and twist them together.
Good idea but wouldn't hold a connection in my girlfriend's 06 Fusion. Had to take the door panels off again to cut and splice. Not a big deal, just annoying.
these made installation as easy as it possibly could be
Pros: no wire stripping, plug n play
Didn't have to go to different audio places to find, came right in the box for free. Very convenient
Pros: Plugs right in no need to cut anythin
Pros: Plug n play. nuthin easyer
Cons: Moisten plug for easyer snap
Used these to install Rockford Fosgate Punch speakers in 2010 Mercury Mariner. As noted in the description, one of the connectors on each was did not fit the spade connector on the speaker. However, Crutchfield provided a collection of spade and slip connectors to accommodate this. You just have to strip the appropriate wire and clamp on the right-sized connector. After that, the harness fit the Mariner as needed.
Pros: No need to strip off the OEM harness and clamp on slip connectors for the speaker spades. That could be an aggravating task.
Cons: Slip connectors not perfect fit for Rockford Fosgate Punch spade connectors.
You must have them to install aftermarket speakers in your F150 fit perfectly
Pros: Easy install
Pros: Perfect fit, easy insulation
It worked in my 2011 Mariner.
Pros: It fit.
I got these free when I purchased a set of speakers for my truck and they made the installation so easy. They plugged right into the factory plugs for the speakers in my truck. No wire cutting or splicing speaker wires, just plug them in and you're done with the wiring. Great addition to my speaker purchase.
Pros: Easy to install Perfect fit Saves time on wiring
Nice addition to the speakers no splicing or cutting required. Used on my 2010 f150.
makes it easy to hook up an no trouble
Pros: great works great
Very easy to install and saves a lot of time
Pros: Easy install
I gave this item 4 stars because the connections were backwards. It was an easy fix besides that the installation was simple.
Pros: Simple installation
Cons: Connectors were wrong
2 of 4 had black wire pull loose from connection. Fortunately I had an extra laying around and just used a butt end connector for the other.
Cons: Quality not great - 2 of 4 had black wire pull loose from connector
These fit the speakers and truck connections well, however after being installed for 1 week one of the connections came loose and will need to be replaced. I tried to reinsert the wire, but it fell out again. Crutchfield is sending out a replacement immediately with no hassle.
Pros: Great fit at speaker and at truck Crutchfield tech support
Cons: quality control may not be the best, connection came out from harness.
Great product. Wires came out of the connector when plugging it into car harness. A few minutes with needle nose pliers and all is well.
This speeds up installation.
Pros: Plug and play, no wire cutting or splicing.
Fits, but very cheap build, prongs popped right out, clicked harness on then inserted prongs
Cons: Cheap build quality
Worked great, but if not aligned properly, it can push the pins out of the adapter when connecting to the factory harness...
Pros: quick installation
Cons: not securely attached wiring pins in adapter
Worked exactly as advertised, simple plug and play installation
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: None so far
Works great with my speakers
Pros: Great connection items
installation made easy no wire cutting
Pros: easy to use
These adapter make adding aftermarket speakers much easier than having to cut the wires.
Pros: Easy to add aftermarket speakers
Cons: The pins sometimes come out so be careful during your installation.
While you need to use the speaker wiring harness to adapt to your existing speakers, the snap in connector didn't line up correctly with the factory connector. Slight modifications and a little elbow grease got them together
Pros: Good product if it works.
Cons: Maybe a bad mold on the connector but it works fine.
I tried plugging the first one into the factory harness and 1 lead pushed right out of the plug as others also said. I was able to slide it back in and wrapped electrical tape around the connector. I was then able to install with no further issue. I wrapped the second one with tape before trying to install and this one was fine. Others indicated that the polarity of the wires may be reversed on these. I didn't read that until done with the install. The speakers sound good overall, so the polarity may be correct.
Pros: Able to install without any wire splicing.
Cons: Wires come out of the plug far too easy. There are quite a few complaints on this issue that are quite old and Crutchfield continues to offer them..This was my first purchase from Crutchfield and not the way to inspire confidence.Crutchfield response on July 15, 2014 These harnesses are the standard choice for installing new speakers in many Ford vehicles, and most of the time they offer solid connections and easy installation for your new speakers. As with any wiring job, it's a good idea to give each wire a tug to make sure the connection is strong. As others have suggested, a little tape (or for the purist, solder) will take care of any lose connection.
The speaker wiring harness was provided with my purchase of Infinity REF-8602cfx for my 2014 Ford Mustang. The wiring harness provided by Crutchfield fit perfectly with the connector in the vehicle. The speaker side connectors were perfect for my speakers as well, and the wires are labeled positive and negative. I couldn't ask for a better product.
Pros: Easy to install, perfect match to my vehicle, no additional charge with purchase of speakers
Back in the day, I did car stereo installation part-time for a big box store. Wish we had these little gems back then! What an easy adaptation to the OE wiring at the speaker! Back then, we'd either tap into the OE wiring and leave the OE speaker plug dangling around or wire tied in the speaker pod, or we'd flat out cut the wires and solder/tape the aftermarket bayonet connector wiring directly. Great idea to develop these.
Pros: Keeps your OE wiring pristine. No cutting, no tapping into existing wiring.
Cons: Crutchfield website wasn't clear on ordering these, I ended up ordering an extra pair by accident.
Bought for 2011 f150. Fits perfect as described.
Pros: Perfect for changing speakers without affecting factory wiring
These are awesome, why can't everything come with connector wires? With these you literally clip them to the new speakers, unplug the old speakers, and plug the new speakers in. Done. No splicing or wiring needed. 10-20 minutes to install the speakers and most of that time was taking the door apart.
Pros: Simplifies the connection process and drastically cuts down install time
Wire connectors in plug were long and kept pushing out back end of plug. Added a little tape to ensure nothing would ground out.
Very easy to use on a do-it-yourself install.
what does it fit? came with JL audio's c5-570's it doesn't fit.
Cons:Crutchfield response on June 9, 2014 We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.
Basic wire harness
Pros: Installed easily
I called the company to speak with a company rep. he assured me the harnesses would fit my 2002 Ranger connections no problem. I was leary but I'm happy to say the Wire Harnesses worked like a charm, they made insalation super easy plus they give a good solid connection without soldering, and as a bonus they were Free with my speaker order.
Just what I needed; prompt deliver.
Pros: Worked fine.
Took 5 seconds to hook up, worked great.
Pros: Fast, easy, and clean install, works great.
ok speaker harness
Pros: no wire cutting
Cons: had to adjust connector pin to fit correctly
Quality is ok. It gets the job done.
Pros: Easy fitting connections.
Cons: Too short. Depending on your vehicle set-up it can require a little magical maneuvering to install properly.
A flawless installation to connect new speaker to factory harness. Perfection !!
Pros: Ease of installation.
Mostly good adaptors. Correct plugs for my application.
Pros: Made my install easier without removing my factory plugs in case replacing to my factory speakers if trading vehicles.
Cons: One side of the adaptors came loose from the connector. Had to go back & force wires back in & tape together to hold.
