    You get 2 per package, good if you're in a hurry

    As a first time car speaker installer, I didn't realize that I needed an adapter to install aftermarket speakers for my 2005 Ford Focus, and had the door all the way off before I found out that I needed one. After a quick online search, I realized that my Ford needed this adapter, and that it was in stock at my local Best Buy. I went inside and talked to someone in the Car Audio section, who referred me to the mechanic in the garage section of the store, who then found a package of these adapters for me. If you're only replacing your front 2 speakers (like I was) you only need 1 bag. If you're replacing your rear speakers too however, you'll probably need another. I'm sure you can find these cheaper if you comparison shop or wait for a sale, but if you need a set of these RIGHT now, it's great to be able to drop by your local Best Buy to get a set. You don't have to wait for shipping, and returns are much easier than online. Plus, you can talk to people and show them the speaker you have and get help in person. These are all reasons why I often prefer to shop in physical stores despite the option of online shopping.

    Fits perfect in my F150

    Replaced the factory speakers in my trucks and did not want to cut the factory wires. This harness (it's a two pack by the way) fit perfectly in my Ford F150. Plugged this into the harness in my door, the other end into my speaker and I had sound. They are kinda expensive, but I bought some cheap non brand name adapters online and they did not fit right. Get this one, and you won't be disappointed.

    Never ruin factory wiring again

    The wiring harness adapter makes swapping out speakers a breeze. Well that is if you can get the door panels off of your vehicle. You will never have to worry about destroying factory wiring again. The worst part is I also bought new speakers and when I was connecting the adapter to those speakers the harness was so tight that it caused me to break off the post on my new speaker. SO be careful or you will be taping the post back together or you will have to buy another set of speakers.

    Overpriced but it works

    Firstly, it works as described, so no complaints there. My only complaint is the price, it's a lot of money, especially when you'll need to buy two sets to do a complete vehicle I bought one set of adaptors for the fronts but for the rear speakers I ended up just cutting the existing ford adaptor off the wire and joining up a short length wire and spade plugs that cost just a few bucks from radio shack.

    Caution Revered Polarity!

    I tried to install these in my 2004 Ford Taurus. They are very easy to install but after checking the polarity I found that it was reversed. I tried pulling the pins and flipping them but they are in there too tight. I ended up returning them and splicing into the factory wires to get the correct polarity. I'm not sure if this only happens on the 04 Taurus but thought I'd post this just as a word of warning.

    I have always spliced the wires when adding new speakers but this literally took me 30 seconds to install the wires and connect to my new Pioneer speakers for my 2007 Ford F-250. Would highly recommend getting. What it doesn't tell you on the package description is that they come as a pair (2 wires) and not as an individual wire per package.

    Fits with some tweaking

    There's no doubt that this was the adapter I needed for my speakers. I did notice it wasn't a nice slide-in fit. The two internal metal plugs inside the black plastic housing were about a millimeter off vertically. So with some tweaking via my fingernail, all was good. I'd advise not to "shove" or "force" the plug hence doing so may permanently damage or compromise it's purpose.

    With the purchase of Pioneer speakers, I wanted to avoid modifying any wiring in my 2007 Mazda 6 when replacing all the speakers. These are ideal. I simply plugged these into my OEM wiring and then plugged the other end into my new Pioneer speakers. No need to cut any stock wiring at all. These are truly beneficial and not expensive either. Great buy!

    I wanted to save the cost of installing new speakers in my Son's car. Guy's at Best Buy Auto Install were great and suggested this wiring kit. Worked great. No splicing or soldering required. Thanks. Best thing is, they didn't even try to sell me on their installation, but were happy to help me on my self attempt.

    Apparently there are other parts needed when the sound system fails in the vehicle and replacing with a compatible component is key...I am pleased Best Buy has product compatible information, making it so much easier to have all parts ordered ready for the installer....Very pleased with the overall experience of replacing my sound system.

    Plug and play

    What can I really say about these, you plug them to the connectors, and you're good to go. I guess I could say that I got two pairs of these, and one pair needed minor adjustments to the pins, but if you can't get a flathead or something, and slightly move the pins to fit, you probably shouldn't be installing speakers yourself

    When it comes to car audio, you can't do enough research. Speaking to one of the installers can be a great time and money saver as they can often share with you insights of installation and help you double-check that you have all of the items needed to make the install of the new car stereo go smoothly.

    No issues at all, the polarity seems to be correct, they fit perfectly in a 2006 Ford F150. Just make sure you pay attention to tucking the wires in close on the rear doors, the electric window will shear these right off the speaker if you leave slack behind the speaker.

    These are great if you don't like cutting factory connectors off. Also handy if your speakers have screw terminals, so you can pre-install them on the speaker (after cutting the spade connectors and stripping) and you don't have to juggle screwing wires in while holding speaker.

    I know this isn’t required for installing speakers, but it sure does make it easier. If you are doing an install and want to make sure you don’t cross pos and neg, get this product. This has dummy proof connections.

    Almost simple plug and play. As others have noted, the polarity is reversed. Not a problem with a 2 speaker system like mine but can cause real issues with a 4 speaker system. Easy enough to fix by replacing the ends but you shouldn't have to.

    Perfect plug in for the front and back door speakers. For those with factory component speakers, keep in mind that tweeters in the corner of each front door will no longer work when replacing the door speakers with coaxial after markets.

    Works fine, just be proactive, and tape up the connection to play it safe. My "weatherproof" seal in the door allowed moisture in once, and the harness rusted a little. Other than that, works like it's supposed to. Super easy to connect.

    I've been jamming with hook up for an month or so and it still is sound proof wiring this far. Would love to tell others about the install, even with a couple of scuff marks on the instrument panel I will get over it.

    This is a must have for easy installation of aftermarket speakers. I highly recommend you take a moment and ask the tech since these are not on the shelves and you will have to have assistance to buy it.
