|Itsa03Jeepthing||Thanks guys! That what I ended up doing and it worked great. I found open areas in the connector and just drilled them out enough to fix the speaker cable through. By the time I got to the second door it was quick and easy and worked out exactly as I needed it to!|

I removed those connectors, and wire through, then carefully but forcefully put the connectors back in. I did this to run lights in the door handle pockets.
For what its worth, I installed all new speakers/amps and retained the factory speaker wires. Although not ideal, they aren't terrible and my new stereo sounds great. I installed JL Audio C2s in all 4 doors and the dash, powered by 2 Kenwood amplifers, and a 10" JL W3V2 with a 500W JL amp. Source unit is a Kenwood 7" touch screen.
People get hung up on the speaker wires, but for door speakers the factory wiring is fine and doesn't introduce any noise

I have installed an Amp to power the door speakers. Has anyone installed speakers on the back doors and ran speaker wire back to the Amp? I thought it would be quick and easy but there are molex connectors in the boot /door. what is the best way to run the speaker wire?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
