About the Metra Female Quick Slides
Meet Buck Pomerantz
I belong to a culture of fine sights and sounds, and I like spreading the word.
I've been tinkering with electronics ever since I was a kid - starting with taking apart and putting back together televisions and radios. I always got them back together again and working. I took courses in radio and electronics as a teenager, and became a ham radio operator. I worked in my high school's stage crew, running sound, lights, and a movie projector. After college, I joined a rock 'n roll band as the soundman and learned how to lug around and operate the gear that helps make music sound good and loud.
Working in a music store in Austin, Texas, I spent a few years manufacturing, installing, repairing, and operating sound systems. Our customers were recording studios, nightclubs, and touring bands. Eventually I moved back to Charlottesville, Virginia and opened a small demo recording studio. In 2006, I finally came to my senses and got this job at Crutchfield. They actually pay me to ramble on, rant, and explain the things I love about music, electronics, and getting good sound.
Given my background, they put me to work writing about some of the most complex electronic products Crutchfield sells: car amplifiers, digital signal processors, wiring, professional sound mixers, and PA systems.

More from Buck Pomerantz
Some aftermarket speakers have speaker wire terminals that are a little bit wider or narrower than others, and the wiring harnesses Crutchfield provides won't slide onto them.
Just crimp these female quick slide connectors to your Crutchfield wiring harness adapter (after removing the harness's existing slide connectors), and you should find it much easier to connect to your speaker's non-standard terminals. Warranty: 60 days.
