Speaker Harness?

I just got some of the kicker upgrade speakers because the (what I thought were) stock speakers were blown out and I wanted something that would work and was plug and play. Turns out someone had already replaced them and cut off the factory harness. The kicker upgrade speakers use a harness plug, not the normal spade connectors. Does anyone know where I could buy more of the male harnesses (plugs in to the speaker)? Metra seems to only have adapters that go from the stock harness (wires) to spade connectors (speaker).

I guess my other option is just got pick up a component set from somewhere and call it good since some previous owner already butchered the wiring

My best guess would be to check a junk yard. You could also solder the wires directly to the speaker leads which will work fine if you have to.

The junkyard is a good idea. I hope I can find one around here with a WK.

As for the soldering, are you talking about the leads that are inside the connector?

If the junkyard doesn't work give clutchfield a call and ask them if they sell them

Easiest and cheapest solution if your ok with a solder iron. Solder your wires to one of these two places which could differ on your speakers

That'll work! Thanks!

Any idea which side goes where? I can still see the original wires. Guess I'll try to track down a picture or a wiring diagram or something.

Here is what mine look like:
