Where to buy OEM speaker plugs - Connectors

Hi all,

I am about to order the Focals speakers but they are not come with the plug (connector) like the BSW does. My question is where do I can get those connector so I don't have to cut off my original connector and splice with different type connector to wire the speakers.
if anyone know, please let me know.

thanks

Typically, yes, if you swap from OEM speakers you have to snip the factory connectors and solder (and I would ONLY recommend a soldered connection) on new connectors for the new speakers.

You can check on realoem.com and then see if your dealer carries the parts (if it's available)

@pjinca, as your suggestion I just order stage 1 BSW speaker set for my standard HIFI. Now I need to buy one speaker for the center channel. Question is where do I tap the signal from ?
