Ok, my passenger side speaker started going out a while ago. I ordered a speaker off of a forum member, who said it would work with 2002 mach 460 system. But here's what I got.

Stock Speaker



Take notice to the connector and "AA" at the end of the code.

New speaker



The connectors are different, and the code is different as well. I'm not sure if the code is important, but I thought it might have to do with the type of speaker it is, because the digits before the final two letters all match. Just the "AA" and "DA" do not. Do you think I'll have to buy another harness to fit the two plugs on the new speaker, or won't that even work? Please help.

If they are the same size you can just buy a bag of the new connectors at RadioShack for like $0.67.

Yeah they look to be the same size. Is it difficult to put a different connector onto the wires that hook up to the speaker?

Not at all. Especially if you can solder. You don't even have to be good at it. My stock speakers ended in KA so I am not quite sure what's up with Fords speaker coding.

Thanks guys, reps to both. And Asian, what exactly do you mean by a female disconnect?

Essentially what you'll do is just insert the male blade on the speaker into the female disconnect. The plastic shield on it will prevent it from shorting out or touching any other metal components on your car. You can find disconnects at any Advance Auto or ACE Hardware.
