Installing After market speaker w/o cutting any oem Wires

i know there are Honda speaker adapters that you can buy, but why spend money when you can use this method that will cost you almost nothing.

Items needed
1. 2 automotive Fuses Blown out or Not
2. Soldering iron and Solder, any DIY should have one.

break the fuse in half and remove the plastic, as per below
solder the ends to speaker wire
insert them into the car speaker adapter

cutting the honda adapters off and attaching your speaker wires IS free and it seems alot easier than doing this

hmm this is weird, all the speakers i've dealt with had those connectors right on them. so i would just use the honda connectors and they would fit right on.

Ditto, it should be plug and play.

the two wires hanging from the speaker should pull off and have the connectors there.

you can use the oem speaker connector if you rip it off, but some people like to keep them in case they want to sell the car and put the OEM back...

those speaker in the picture are brand new Infinity speakers, and they did not come with any wires and this write is not about that.

ANYWAYS this write up was not for the speakers, connectors, take apart the oem adapter from original speakers, my speakers come with connectors etc... it was another way to help out people who want to hook up after market speakers to their car without cutting off the oem speaker adapter found in the doors or rear trunk.

The reason i used the extened wire was for ease of installing as the oem speaker wires specially in the front door do not have much free play this gives you a little more room.

if you have better suggestion then do your own version of How To and post it so other members can benefit from it.

Just wanted to say thanks for this, all you guys saying that you can plug the stock harness into aftermarket speakers are on crack. The connections are completely different. I was going to cut my wires but this saved me from doing that which is always good cause I don't like cutting wires.

I used these

Honda/Acura Wire Harness speakers, 1990-up

They come free with speakers if you buy from crutchfield. No cutting wires and took me 3 minutes to swap out the front speakers.
