Overview

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

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

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 harness made connection very easy!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The folks that make these are pros at exact fitment and connectability. The connectors plugged in perfect and allowed me to keep a clean install with my aftermarket speakers. No cutting, no soldering, no mess, no fuss. Factory installed look with aftermarket performance. These harnesses are a must have for installing aftermarket speakers using your factory wiring!

Pros: Easy to install, factory look, plug and play!

Cons: None

Absolute waste of money, does not fit 2008 Pathfinder

2008 Nissan Pathfinder
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

total rip off, doesn't fit at all, not even a little bit.

Pros: they have wire attached to the harness, that's a plus.

Cons: nothing fit, had to cut it up and re work the connections by soldering them. Took longer than just wiring them from scratch.

Perfect!

Speaker Wiring Harnesses

GFxRocket from Raleigh, NC on 1/3/2014

2001 Nissan Frontier
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This speaker wiring harness made installation a snap. I was told it is better to solder the connections but since I have a stereo that puts out 50 W per channel and no amplifier it doesn't seem to matter. Not that I am afraid to solder as I spent many years working in electronics but if it's not necessary why bother. If I was running a high power amp I'm sure I would have taken the time to solder everything

Pros: Easy to use. Just plug and go

Cons: None

This a decent 6x9 for the price..the woofers move a surprising amount of air which creates deep bass coming from the rear dash...the tweeters are ok,but a little too bright ,but for 50 bucks this 6x9 is a great deal...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The wiring harness came in really handy and it saved me the work to have to custom made one myself. Highly recommended if you are installing new speakers and you don't want to cut existing wires that came in your car (they are only so long if you mess up).

Pros: Ready for installation. Plug and play.

Cons: None!

The speaker wiring is the simplest way to upgrade car speakers. I did it overall speaker (front doors & rear deck), The whole installation process is plug-and-play!

Pros: Simplest and clean installation for aftermarket speakers

Cons: On the aftermarket connector may not fit properly in some speakers (required squeeze)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield makes it so easy to upgrade old car stereo from the golden oldies. I have a 96 Pathfinder and was expecting a whole day of installation. Took me only 2 hours to completely install front and rear speakers with the instructions they provided and the kits. I will buy from no other company !

Not Compatible with All Speakers

Mike Ryz from New York, NY on 4/20/2012

2001 Nissan Maxima
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm a big fan of the installation gear that Crutchfield provides (one of the major reasons I like to order from them rather than elsewhere), so I was disappointed when the terminals on these adapters were too small for the speakers I had ordered at the same time. I was forced to cut them off and then twist them onto the speakers and heat-shrink in place.

Pros: - Connect easily and security to car harness.

Cons: - Wrong size terminals for speakers I ordered.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These wires were a perfect fit! Work great and kept me from having to run out to an audio store to figure out which I needed. For this feature and the mounting adapters I would shop Crutchfield first before the competitors.

Speaker Wiring Harness with 01 Nisan Frontier

JSF from Costal VA on 11/27/2010

2001 Nissan Frontier
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit makes the speaker installation about as easy as you could expect. No soldering is required and both ends of the harness plug into their mating connectors perfectly. I used a large cable tie to secure the wires to the speaker magnet to prevent any movement. Overall, this harness is an absolute necessity unless you like to solder.

Pros:

Cons:

Awesome

MH from Rougemont, NC on 8/25/2010

Terry from Leesburg, VA on 6/8/2010

1999 Nissan Altima
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not much to say. They plugged in to the existing vehicle harness perfectly, plugged in to the speaker and did the job. Sure made it easier than splicing wires! I would definately get them again (especially since they came free with the speakers). Thanks Crutchfield - another great reason to buy here.

Jared from Salt Lake City, UT on 5/27/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had a little difficulty with these speaker wires. I first appeared that they would work great. It was nice that they plugged into my cars wiring system. When I plugged them into the new speaker, the connections were a little loose. I had to compress the connectors to make them tighter. Then it was a little too tight causing me to break off one of the pieces of metal on the speaker. I had to cut off the connector and solder the wire right onto the speaker. Then it worked great! If you buy this, I recommend you put the connectors onto the speaker, then compress them down in place.

Dean from Lancaster, PA on 9/15/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

There isn't much to say for these other than the fact that they fit, and do what they're supposed to do... at least, they did in my 1998 Nissan Altima. I am really glad that Crutchfield included them, though: How else would an amateur be able to install new speakers?!?

Pros:

Cons:

Perfect fit

Rene from San Marcos,TX on 8/5/2008

2002 Infiniti Q45
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I believe the spec's for this part say "For ALL Nissan & Infiniti models 2000-2006", or something like that. Well, if you have an 02 Infiniti Q45? These don't work! Close, but not close enough.

Features

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