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.
Average Customer Review(s):
Makes changing speakers a breeze
These work great. I wish the wiring was a little bit longer. I had to put one speaker upside down from the other door. Not a big deal to me though. Otherwise they work perfectly.
Pros: Plug right in to door harness and has ends to plug right into speaker.
Cons: Wires are short. 6" is about the wire length. Just FYI. Not a problem for my setup.
well made speaker wiring adapters. Only problem is that the speakers in my truck don't have weather pack connectors on them. I had to cut and solder the adapters to fit my truck. They worked very good after my reworking them.
Pros: made very nice
Cons: didn't fit my truck
Speaker wire harness did not fit the application
Cons: Did not fit my application
Exact fit no problems as usual with crutchfield.
Pros: Made install a breeze
Excellent product. Even comes with the female terminals to easily apply to aftermarket speakers.
Pros: Makes connections easy!
Cons: no need to buy a new tool ...
This product worked just like it was supposed to. The reps at Crutchfield were right on about what I needed and were very helpful...Thanks
After digging and contacting Crutchfield about it they finally found the part. I was in no rush so that didn't bother me. Not sire what other models it fits but mine is a 97 ram 2500 if that helps anyone. Happy thumping!
Made installation of speaker a snap. You need it!
Pros: Easy installation cheap
Wires were super easy to connect and didn't look or feel loose whatsoever. Does what it is there for and it's nice that Crutchfield gave me them for free so I didn't have to buy them. Thanks Crutchfield!
Perfect fit. Easy to use just plug n play. Free with my order! It doesn't get any better than that.
Pros: Easy to use, did I mention they're free?
Quick easy fix for replacing speakers in the door. No problems I can find.
Pros: Quick Easy to use Great results
Very easy installation with the correct wiring
Pros: makes the installation easy
Awesome that this cake with the speakers I purchased. Crutch field rules,
These came free with my speakers and they were percect. I had my speakers switched out in under 10 minutes. It was that easy. I spent more time writing my review than it took to chance out 1 speaker
Pros: no mess no fuss
The wiring harness that is also included is a perfect fit. Its nice to be able to put new wires on a new product because it makes a better connection. Its also nice to have something that actually fits. They are easy to put on, just take the old wires off and plug these in and you are good to go.
Speaker Harness: These speaker harnesses prevent you from having to cut your vehicle's factory speaker plugs when replacing your factory speakers with aftermarket car speakers. The 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 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 speaker harness to your aftermarket speaker's terminals or replace the quick-slide connectors on the 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 speaker harnesses are included.

Fits my van. [ Jonathan Jun 01, 2016 ]
I might have to use these new Speaker Wiring Harnesses cause the one in the doors might be bad or someone mess with the wire connections before I owned the van. I just like to start all fresh and neat and as a new looking product. [ Adam Apr 19, 2016 ]
