Our take on the Metra Female Quick Slides

by Buck Pomerantz

Some aftermarket speakers have speaker wire terminals that are a little bit wider or narrower than others, and the wiring harnesses Crutchfield provides won't slide onto them.

Just crimp these female quick slide connectors to your Crutchfield wiring harness adapter (after removing the harness's existing slide connectors), and you should find it much easier to connect to your speaker's non-standard terminals. Warranty: 60 days.

Highlights:

    Package includes:
    • four 0.250" female quick slides with blue plastic insulators
    • two 0.205" female quick slides with blue plastic insulators
    • two 0.187" female quick slides with blue plastic insulators
    • two 0.110" female quick slides with blue plastic insulators

    Thin metal, easily damaged

    Written By Cement Phantom, Chicago on Thursday, May 29, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    These are very basic spade connectors made of soft, thin metal that is easily bent and made unusable. A couple of them were slightly bent already in the packaging and useless from the start. I wasted several others while installing a large job due to the metal being so flimsy. I recommend the spade connectors you can sometimes find in the electrical department at one of the home improvement stores which are much sturdier. In fact the connectors you find there are the same that are on the Toyota speaker wire harness Crutchfield sells. I'd stay away from these and find something with better quality.
    Pros:
    You get several sizes in the set.
    Cons:
    Flimsy.

    Worked great over all. Were just a tad too big so I had to crimp them. I broke a couple when installing my rear speakers so you could definitely use more than one pack.

    Adequate for me

    Written By DanielB, Atlanta, GA on Sunday, March 23, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    These were needed for proper fitment of the speaker harness to the Rockford Fosgate Punch 6x8 3-way speakers that went into my 2014 Mustang base 4-speaker system (door replacements). They were included for no charge since the speakers come with an off sized spade terminal and they also included enough to make a mistake on the crimping, which I was thankful for. Unlike the standard pieces you will find at other retailers, these terminals had a nice, untarnished, tinned finish and a good tight fit that made me feel comfortable that they would not come loose; even under loud, extended playing sessions. Personally, I would have preferred the ones with full insulation and a shrink fitting, but they still worked fine for me and they were free.
    Pros:
    Good materials used in manufacturing Tight fit on spades
    Cons:
    Not fully insulated Insulation not shrinkable

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Not bad, but none of the connectors got the new speakers well. I had to "re shape" them to either be tighter or more loose. Not the best for soldering connections, either.
    Pros:
    Easier to install speakers to harness
    Cons:
    Need to all be closer to tolerance of speaker connections

    Female quick slides indeed!

    They function as intended! Gosh, what a world! My wife was a bit concerned when she head me yell "Yeah, baby! I like the way you slide!" from the garage, but once she saw the tight gripe these babies had on the wiring adapter and how quick and easy these females slide; she climbed right into the trunk with me to watch these babies work!
    Pros:
    Tight connection. Easy to crimp without being easy to break. They function as intended.
    Cons:
    None.

    Cons:
    No cons unless you don't have the right tools to put the quick slides on. You can stand the chance of not having a good connection if not installed correctly.

    Very useful to have around when you need a perfect speaker terminal fit for something other than the standard "large" size. If your speakers aren't going to include the factory harness connectors, order some of these. These can be very snug, but you want a secure connection. Be sure to not to push them on at an "up and down" angle, you can bend or break off the speaker terminals. A little side to side wiggling can be helpful to open these up a little bit for installation, if they don't seem to want to go on the speaker terminal.
    Pros:
    Proper fit.
    Cons:
    Use care when connecting the small ones.

    If you're putting in new speakers, and haven't yet removed your factory speakers. I'd order these; it's very probable your existing female terminals from the factory wiring won't fit your new after-market speakers' male terminals.

    These are a very good thing to have around if you are doing your own car audio installation. Most people that do any kind of electronics will have these around, but if you don't, grab a pack or two. They are inexpensive, and very good quality. They hold tight onto wire, and fit very snug onto the speakers. In fact, that is my biggest praise and largest complaint about these simultaneously. I hate having ones that slip off of the speaker tabs (especially when you have to take your door apart to get to them) but these fit so tight that when I initially tried to install them, I bent the speaker tabs.

    all in all, great thing to have around. Just be careful with your speakers!
    Pros:
    Very high quality, fit very snug
    Cons:
    fit almost too snug! be careful!

    1 question already asked

    Do these accept 16 gauge wire? And do they fit normal sized terminals like on a 6.5 speaker? [ Jonte  Jun 12, 2014 ]
    2 answers
    • Hey, Jonte - I purchased these a few months bac and used them with 12 gauge wire, the stick wires on my cars wiring was 16 - they fit fine on those. Just make sure to use a crimp tool of sorts. Also, I installed them on Polk audio speakers and they fit those terminals nice and snug, no worries about a possible loss of connection or anything of the sort. Hope your install goes well - I'd recommend these. [ JEFFERSON   Jun 13, 2014 ]
    • Hi, I bought these and the package had 3 sizes for different terminals, pos & neg. I think I used them for 16 guage & 18 guage wire, but I don't remember. [ BARRETT   Jun 12, 2014 ]
