Overview

Our take on the Posi-Products™ Car Speaker Connectors

Posi-Products connectors help make your electrical connections fast, easy, and reliable with no crimping, soldering, or messy tape. Just strip your stranded wires, insert them in the caps, and then hand tighten the two caps together — the wire ends get locked between opposing cone shapes to create a water-, dirt-, vibration-, and heat-proof housing. You get a strong, low-resistance electrical connection, and you can reuse the connectors, too.

Vern from Wyoming on 8/22/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are a pain to install, and the connection is questionable. Maybe there's a trick to them, because using them the way that the instructions tell you to definitely isn't the 4+ star average that it shows.

Pros: High review score...

Cons: Hard to use, hard on your fingers, connection doesn't inspire confidence.

Wiring Made Simple

bukifvr from Dublin, OH on 8/7/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These Speaker Wire Taps worked perfectly for splicing into my factory speaker wires for with my High Level Signal wires for my Kicker Hideaway powered subwoofer. The only negative is that they are a little bulky and working in tight quarters with a tightly wired Factory Wiring harness can be a little tedious, but still way easier than alternative methods.

Pros: Makes splicing into wires very easy, no cutting factory wires.

Cons: bulky

Simplifies wiring

Joseph from Captain Cook, HI on 7/18/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The design of these wire connectors made the wiring part very simple. Happy not to have to crimp connectors. Also, simplifies rewiring in case I have to replace wires etc. Great design.

Pros: Fast and easy to connect wires

Cons: none

Easy installation!

ANT.C from San Francisco, CA on 6/2/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These connectors are very easy. i was a little confused when i first got them. I didn't know these where T-Tap type connectors. Anyways, they do not make speaker harness adapters for my car (14 Focus ST). I used the stock housing from the stock speaker to mount my new speakers... did not have a soldering iron so these where the next best thing. I didn't hack the stock plugs, so incase i want to replace/upgrade/solder whatever, i can still use the stock plug. These connectors fit easily on the cars stock 18 guage wires. I connected it with 16 gauge wires with no issues. These are a little pricey but worth it. Will buy again.

Pros: Easy install Removable Reusable

Cons: Price Not sold anywhere else except the manufacturer website

Great

Cons:

They work but...

Thomas from Missouri on 7/6/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I didn't end up using these as I wanted a more permanent connection.

Pros: Easy to connect 2 wires together.

Cons: Any time you add weight and the possibility of a short due to a loose screw on a wire splice...that's not a good thing. Especially if it means taking a door panel off to fix the issue.

Great Product!!

Steve from Washington, DC on 4/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These T-Connectors are a charm to use. Very quickly allows you to splice a second wire to a continuous existing wire. Works fast and saves a tremendous amount of time particularly in working with difficult to work with small gauge wires.

Pros: Great Invention

Used these for brake switch and reverse cam connections. Would not trust them for a speaker connection, but that may be because I'm old school.

Alan Gill from Marcus Hook, Pa on 5/14/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this product to connect an amplifier in my 2010 Camaro. I was able to make excellent connections without ruining the wires in the fatory harness. This was important to me in case I ever want to return the Camaro to the factory configuration in case i ever decide to sell the car.

Pros: Easy to use without cutting wires, made excellent connections.

Cons: None

Very Nice

Rhfactor from Tucson, Az. on 5/1/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions on the package were kind of difficult for me to understand. But after I figured the correct procedures to install it was very easy and also fun to do.

Pros: Very nice product. worked as advertised. Make sure to use recommended gauge wire on proper end.

Cons: May be a little bit too plastiky.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

Worth it

Aaron from Southern NH on 3/30/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great little product that makes wiring speakers a breeze. So easy to use I didn't quite think it was working, until I pulled one apart and saw how well it punctured the factory speaker wire. I actually ran out of these and had to splice two of my replacement speakers with old-fashioned butt connectors... what a pain compared with these beauties. I like that everything is contained, too - no electrical tape needed. Well worth the $12!

Pros: Quick and easy way to connect speaker wire without soldering or splicing with butt connectors.

Cons: Pricey, but worth it.

Great connectors - saves time

Anonymous from Fort Knox, KY on 3/17/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These connectors made installing speakers fast and easy. I had some wires in the door that had already been cut short by a previous owner and this made it easy to connect the new speakers because it doesn't involve stripping any outer insulator from the wire. If you want to save time get these connectors.

Pros:

Cons:

Do you like to solder?

John from Snohomish, Wa on 5/27/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I actually did a controlled experiment. Not due to forsight, but rather due to failing memory. I had forgotten that I bought the conectors and put my first set of car speakers in using traditional soldering. Then I found the conectors and used them on my second set of speakers. My conclusion is that they are very easy to use, quick, and they work when you are done. But if you are comfortable with soldering, then they are not worth the cost.

Pros:

Cons:

These things are dynamite!!!

RON from Irvine CA on 3/10/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These state of the art butt plugs made short work of installing after market speakers into my Nissan Titan. There was no plug and play harness available for my truck and splicing myself w/pliers was not something I wanted to do and so I was presented with these by one of the helpful advisors. I am glad I took the advice and used these. They are so easy to use, I had my 5 yr. old daughter copy me because she wanted to help and she got the concept real quick. I had to tighten the one she did until it was snug, ofcourse...but she did the rest, got bored after that one and then I was on my own again, but that just goes to show you, that if a 5yr. old can figure this out and do it, so can you and that is how easy they are to use.

Pros:

Cons:

Quick and simple!

Rob from California on 3/5/2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these products to assist me in wiring in two seperate 4-channel amps. Worked great and was just glad it saved me from doing some soldering and gave me a good strong connection point. Whether you're an installer or just an average Joe on the street trying to hook your own stuff up, these will make your efforts much simpler.

Features

Overview: This Speaker Connector Kit comes with 8 Posi-Tap tap connectors so you can connect aftermarket speakers to your existing speaker wires. Posi-Tap connectors allow you to tap into wires without cutting or stripping them. Each connector has a tapered design and a threaded cap on each end. Just insert wire to be tapped into the large cap (this is the Tap end) and hand tighten into the barrel. The conductor point pierces the tapped wire without compromising its conductive integrity. Insert the stripped wire through the small cap (this is the Accessory end), then tighten. An internal conductor runs the length of the Posi-Tap, giving you a solid electrical connection. The Posi-Tap connectors are vibration proof, fully insulated, and reusable.

Dimensions:

  • Clear Posi-Tap Connectors: compatible with 18 gauge wire on the Tap end and 14-20 gauge wire on the Accessory end
    • Length: 1.25"
    • Maximum Diameter: 0.385"
    • Width of Slot in Large Cap (Tap end): 0.07"
    • Diameter of Hole in Small Cap (Accessory end): 0.15"

These taps are compatible with 18 gauge wire on the Tap end and 14-20 gauge wire on the Accessory end. [ Jeff  Aug 31, 2015 ]  Staff
All you need is the 8 that come in the package just connect the factory wires to the new speaker wires and your good to go they work great [ JOE  Jul 30, 2014 ]
Ethan, from what you have stated, 8 should be enough. [ ANDREW  Jul 30, 2014 ]
wrong type of connector for that job-this product was used to tap speaker outputs for a subwoofer installation that could be transfered to another vehicle in the future with minimal intrusion to the original wiring [ Robert  Jul 30, 2014 ]
I ended up not using these, the professional installer had their own but you'll use 2 for each speaker, one positive and one negative. If you want to be sure you have enough get another one, they're cheap all things considered and you can use them for any other wire connecting jobs in the future. Hope that helps! [ DARRIN  Jul 30, 2014 ]
Yes, 8 connectors is enough for wiring two front speakers and two rear speakers, if you are connecting your new speaker wires to your head unit/radio. You should only need two connectors per speaker. one for the positive wire and one for the negative wire. If you wanted to have extra connectors in case one of them gets damaged somehow, then you might want to buy 2 packs. hope this helps out. [ JOSEPH  Jul 30, 2014 ]
Two per speaker so 8 should be enough [ darrenh  Jul 30, 2014 ]
I believe that is all you need. However, I did not do the installation. [ KEVIN E  Jul 30, 2014 ]
