The stock speaker connectors in the dash are .100 pitch.
That is very good; it turns out that a KK tabbed PCB connector will lock reasonably well against the factory harness. It's NOT pull-proof, but it goes in and makes solid contact, with the tab providing a REASONABLE interlock against accidental disconnect.
The point of this? Those Molex headers (which are intended for PCB use) cost pennies and they now give you a way to make up a speaker harness that DOESN'T require you to cut wires for that location.
And yes, I intend to exploit that (reversible decisions are GOOD folks and if you can avoid cutting wires -- DO!)
P/N: 22-01-3037, available at Mouser and elsewhere. Yes, you need decent soldering skills. I'd love to find a plug that has .100 pitch PINS but those are difficult to locate -- if I find them I'll give a shout-out.
