Ok, I have a 92' Chevy Lumina, so the rear speakers are kind of old and I am going to replace them. I am going to order 2 speaker harnesses such as

The black clip of that speaker harness plugs into the other clip in my car, leaving the white and black wires to be connected to the speaker. I would like to know the options I have of connecting those wires to a 6x9 such as http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_6479.html# (Click on photo and scroll down to 2nd to last picture). I have no idea how to make the wire to speaker connection.

If you'll have a close look at the input terminals on those speakers you will find that they are two different sizes (the larger being the positive input and the smaller being negative)

The GM adapters you've linked to in Crutchfield have two differently-sized ends on the wires...looks like white is for positive and black is for negative. Once you have the wiring adapters and the speakers in the same place it will be very obvious which wire goes where.:)

crimp these on the wire. and plug in to the terminal on the speaker

Sweet, yes I was looking at those azbass, and thought they would work if I got the correct size for the terminal. Thanks for the help Prowler and azbass, love the quick help on these forums.
