Speaker wire connectors

Hooking up rear speakers in my 98 Boxster I am wondering if I can use these connectors so I'll be able to remove the speakers to get to the engine.

Please follow link and let me know.

Thanks

Sure, you could but then you'll likely end up w/ a plug connection and two splices b/w amp and speakers. A better and cheaper solution would be to hit a radio shack and get a 4 position plug w/ connectors so you can cut wires to length as needed and not splice in a connector. such as:

Good luck

Much Better

That 4 conductor Molex is the way I went. I ran a new 6 conductor cable from my head unit to the rear, 4 wires for speakers and two additional wires for whatever future use
