Connect the positive speaker wire to the positive on connector on the speaker and the negative to the negative. It's pretty simple.

Cut the connectors off, strip back the wiring, twist together, solder, heat shrink. Once you access the speakers themselves it is maybe a 5 minute job.

In the dash? Just run new wires, the less splices the better and the stock harness uses a pretty small size wire.

You can buy one of the harness converters from Quadratec, I believe.
If not, it's very easy to splice and connect the wires. I did it with my stock radio (Took out a broken aftermarket and put in a stock) with my stepdad over the weekend. Just strip, twist, put on a stubby rubber wire connector, insert, squeeze. Just make sure everything is connected to the right thing.

I'm going to get flamed on this one but I always used to recommend that you put an inline filter on the dash speakers when I did installs. Basically the dash speakers in 4X6 are crap for bass. By limiting the frequency for some mids but mostly highs it will make the speakers crisper and last much longer. You can buy them at Best Buy or other car audio shops. Get some 6X9's for the rear wheel wells and a small amp off craigslist and like jbolty said just run new wires, it will be way less headache. Let me know if I can help
