ok so I blew my rear passenger side factory speaker. I want to replace with something with a nice full range sound while not killing my wallet. but I also do not want to cut the wires. I have been looking all over the place for a speaker harness for this, but seems like they are no longer available. one thing I saw was on a photo guide for replacing Versa speakers was that the factory speakers have the adapter soldered on.. see pick below... is it possible to remove this adapter so I can use it on the replacement speakers?

Im not sure about removing that connector but have you tried Best Buy? I have Pioneer speakers purchased from there and they tried to sell a "speaker connector." I'd look into those.

If you don't want to cut wires, just unsolder the two wires from the old speakers and use common connectors that can be gotten in any auto supply store.

For the rear right door, teal (the lighter colored teal) is negative and gray is positive. For the rear left door, although the wires are physically flipped, teal is still negative and gray is still positive.

You can use connectors like the blue ones in this picture

Then you can slide those over the new speakers and they will work right away.

Goodluck!

I was going to go the solder method of attaching to new speakers. It would be much more solid and better connection over all. but yeah that is what I was wondering, is if I could remove that from the old to avoid cutting wires. I figure if I could build a Movie quality proton pack from Ghost busters with lights and sound, then changing over a connector should be a cinch..

ok to update I was able to easily remove the plug set from the factory speakers with no issues, in fact it is so easy you do not have to cut around them at all. you just need to de-solder the speaker wires from the plugs before you remove them. then once you have done that you just use a set of needle nose pliers to pinch the retention clips in while pushing the clip outward... worth doing is you do not want to cut factory wires!
