Trouble Wiring 6x9 Speakers, What kind of Connectors do I need, Photo Included!

    Hi Folks,

    I've installed a new Headunit in my car and am in the process of building a new parcel shelf with inbuilt Infinity 6x9 speakers. It's almost done but having never wired a set of car speakers before I have no idea what connectors I need to attach the very thin speaker wire to the speakers.

    Here are the attachments on the speakers:


    Is there some kind of attachments I can crimp on to the speaker wires to slot into these connectors? If so what are they called, I have had a look on Maplins website but cannot find anything. I want to avoid soldering if possible.

    I'm sure there are some very straightforward connectors out there, any advice would be much appreciated.

    you need spade connectors for it mate, you can get them in maplins, i would just solder it on if i didnt have any of them.,

    Yeah oyu need male and female spade connectors. You could get them in most car parts stores if not in maplin.

    All you'll need for that picture is female spade connectors. Just bring a speaker with you to get the right size, but they are so cheap you may not want to and just pick a selection that look the right size
