About the Metra 72-5601 Speaker Wiring Harnesses

Made for 2010-2017 Chevy Equinox 

These harnesses will allow you to plug your new speakers into the factory connectors present in the speaker openings for your vehicle.

Made for 2010-2017 Chevy Equinox 

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."

Product Research


Metra Speaker Harness: Metra 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 Metra 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 Metra speaker harness to your aftermarket speaker's terminals or replace the quick-slide connectors on the Metra 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 Metra speaker harnesses are included.

8 questions already asked

Will these work on a 2010 Chevy Equinox LT with the Pioneer Sound System?
[ Brayden  Nov 02, 2022 ]
1 answer
Yes. These would work for replacing the front and rear door speakers.
[ Nemo  Nov 03, 2022 ]  Staff
Why are the polarities switched on these adapters? They did not match up with the polarities in my 2016 GMC Terrain SLT...
[ Marcus M...  Jan 04, 2022 ]
1 answer
These adapters matched the polarity of the stock wiring that we found in the 2016 GMC Terrain models we researched. The white wire on this harness is positive and that lined up with the grey wire on the stock harness which is also a positive wire.
[ Paul  Jan 17, 2022 ]  Staff
Is the polarity reversed on these like the Metra 72-5600?
[ CHRIS  Oct 28, 2021 ]
1 answer
The polarity on these plugs is reversed from that of the 72-5600 model
[ Paul  Nov 01, 2021 ]  Staff
Are these the same harnesses that people complained about on Amazon that the positive and negative wires were switched?
[ John  Oct 06, 2020 ]
1 answer
I cannot find this model harness on Amazon's site. It cannot be the same harness with those reviews
[ Paul  Oct 25, 2020 ]  Staff
Will this fit a 2016 Ford Taurus SEL with 4 inch screen?
[ Kevin  Aug 16, 2020 ]
1 answer
You can check to see if this will fit your vehicle by using our Outfit My Car tool: For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.
[ Calvin  Aug 28, 2020 ]  Staff
Is this the same connector for the rear subwoofer in the 2009 Ford Explorer sport trac?
[ Keaton  Jul 07, 2020 ]

This harness will not work. Also, we have not been able to find a harness that will work in the stock subwoofer location
