    Soooo I made half doors for my taco uploadfromtaptalk1424053407790.jpg

    All fine and dandy but they're gonna get used while off road and being exposed to the elements, I decided to get some marine speakers to put in em !

    I googled and searched on here but haven't found an answer.

    Can anyone please help me figure out which wires from the door connect to the speakers I bought and does anyone know where to get a plug that plugs into the wire harness so I can have a quick connect for when I put my half doors back on?

    Here's the speakers and info FWIW.

    I'm not familiar with audio stuff at all so if you could dumb down the 'how-to' , that'd be great !

    With the harness it's plug and play, there are wires that run to the factory tweeter that you can cut and run together and will bypass the power rob to run that shitty tweeter and you'll get the max power from radio to speaker.

    So that connection isn't what I was needing :pout: I need one that connects to the harness where the body and door meets. Not the harness thats already inside the door.

    Just take out the radio and find the color speaker wires. Then go down to the door wires and find the same colors. You can make quick disconnect from those wires to the speakers, since they are the only wires you will need for the doors

    Between the door and body is a connection. One side goes into the body and up to the radio or whatever. And the other side is the wire harness inside the door. I need one that plugs into that plug. Not one that plugs into the speaker end of the harness inside the door.

    Yea I understand what your looking for but like I said electrical department of most auto parts store should have what you need;) there is a whole section of just plugs and a lot of cars use the same plugs for different things especially radios...worst case scenario is if you can't find the female to your male is buy a new male and female with the appropriate number of wires and lop off the one coming out of the cab to make em match up...but I'd bet you can find one...your year truck is different then mine post a pic up I'll see if I can locate a part number for you:)

    Nah those look like the connections that plug into where the speaker connection is inside the door. Not the connection between the door and body.
