Speaker connectors?

Post by bmw111 »



Hi, on my new-to-me 1999 Aspencade I'm thinking of adding rear speakers. I'm pretty sure the two white connectors in the picture are the speaker wires, but don't have a manual yet to prove that. If so, what do I need to have rear sound? I don't care about a fader, just want rear stereo sound.

I saw the speaker kits with wiring harness, but am I all set for wiring and just need speakers? What am I missing?

Also some speaker recommendations for both rear and front replacements would be appreciated.

Thank you.

The PO said I don't need to buy a separate harness, just plug in some speakers and go. Anybody can verify this? I see the Polk speakers are the most recommended.

OK, I finally had time to do a deep dive in the Search function and found some old threads with some of the information I need.

DB501s, D401s, and a Kenwood Bluetooth amp looks like the best way to go to get quality sound. Cyclemax speaker kit the easiest but not best sound quality.
