About the Metra 71-017C Speaker Wiring Harnesses

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

Faulty connector

David from American Fork, UT on 3/16/2017

2003 Saturn L200

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall, I'm happy with Crutchfield but this product stunk! After installing complete new system, the left front speaker didn't work. This involved taking everything apart (door panel, center console, etc.) multiple times trying to trace it down. It turned out to be this product was faulty. I ended up having to Frankenstein the product, cut off the leads (and check with multi-meter: they were okay) and solder them to the car wiring. Finally reassembled, it works great. But what a pain in the neck! Looking at the connector, the contacts are quite loose - this was obviously where the problem lie.

Pros: On this product? None

Cons: The connector was shorting out

Crutchfield response on 3/21/2017

Crutchfield customer from Decatur, GA on 10/30/2016

2001 Porsche 911 Carrera

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased two pairs of the Metra 71-017C wire harnesses so I could refrain from cutting the OEM speaker leads. The connectors were a perfect fit however, I had to cut the positive/negative female spade connectors off because the negative would not fit on the negative male spade soldered to the speaker because it was too small. This wasn't a deal breaker but a bit of a nuisance.

Perfect for Porsche 996 Speaker Upgrade

ShoholaSmokin from Pennsylvania on 6/29/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Perfect fit to Porsche 996 wiring harness (2004 cabriolet) for speaker upgrade. Plugs right into the harness. I cut the quick disconnects that were supplied and crimped on a couple of spade connectors as I was wiring to a crossover. If you are going directly from the harness to a replacement speaker the quick disconnects should work just fine.

Pros: Quick clean install - easy to go back to bog stock. Don't have to hack into the harness.

Cons: You don't "need" these but you would have to cut the connector off your old speaker to connect to the harness - or cut into your harness - a no no in my opinion,.

Makes the install so quick and easy

Buckley C from Washington on 12/21/2014

1995 Jaguar XJ6

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is probably the quickest way to simplify the installation for any install. I have bought these for all my applications and really takes the pain out of the installation. With these I always get the polarity right on the install. The design on the Jaguar stock connectors gave me a little trouble on a rear speaker. not the connectors fault but the stock plugs design. I always buy these and have them pre connected before I take the speakers out to do the install.

Pros: Simple, fast and guarantees I get the polarity correct.

Cons: They are cheap but more expensive than cutting and splicing the enclosed wires to the stock harness.

This is the correct speaker adapter for 2001 Porsche Carrera 996, Boxter, etc. Look all over the Internet and Crutchfields the only place I could find. Hopefully they'll update the description to include the cars this fits. Really helpful on front dash speakers as it's difficult to cut the stock harness, attach connectors, then have enough length to actually attach the speaker. Get these, they're worth it!

Pros: worked perfectly! Plug into existing harness in seconds.

Adapter Wire Harness defect from Bellbrook, OH on 11/19/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

One of the four harnesses was defective in that it was missing one electrical terminal, so I had to cut and manually solder this harness to the speaker. This was not beyond my skill; however, the main reason I chose Crutchfield was so that I would have an easy installation job.

Pros:

Cons: The particular item I recieved had a manufacturing defect.

Not for your Saturn Vue

Edward from Boston, MA on 4/12/2008

2004 Saturn VUE

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This harness was provided for free to install replacement speakers in my 2004 Saturn View. Don't use it. While the connector snaps together, the wires inside made poor contact, causing the sound to cut in and out as the I drove my car around. I had to disassemble my door 3 times before I figured out the problem. Soldering the wires together was a much more reliable solution in the end. Thanks for the free harness, but no thanks if you have a Saturn Vue.

Features

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.

Porsche has proprietary connectors for many of their speakers. This is a great deal. Price without buying speakers is $19.98 for two. Next cheapest price anywhere (not for these) is $34.00. This just makes life easier, no solder removal and rework for the connection. For this purchase, I can rationalize that I only spent $39.99 on the speakers. [ Jamie  Dec 04, 2015 ]

Q
Are there male adapter metra wiring harness for sale that would fit these from Crutchfield?
[ Geoffrey  Jun 05, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. As it turns out, no. The male end usually comes from the factory location since that's what these adapt to. You may have to check with a vehicle manufacturer or junk yard.
