Haven't sat down to figure that out yet. Not much more than I paid for the connectors themselves, not out for profit as much as I am to help others stuck with this bastardized radio.

That and I love to tinker with electronics and such. Once I get them completed and tested I will let everyone know.

While we are at it.....what are the chances one could source the parts for the plugs in the door? I personally do not like the idea of drilling those connectors and running speaker wire straight through. I would much rather terminate on either side and leave the plug unmolested.

Hmmm. I might show my ignorance here. Being that I haven't gotten into my doors yet and this is my first Ford, I'm not quite sure I know what you are referring to. You wouldn't happen to be looking for something like this would you?

Can't help you there. I have a Kansas City built truck. I have rubber boots on the doors.

No, that's for the speakers. On my truck (not all, apparently) there is a connector where the boot meets the body of the truck. It's super common for people to drill out portions of the plug and receptacle to chase wires through. Like this:

I'd prefer to pull the pins, terminate new pins on fresh wire and re terminate. Lacking that, I'll just pick it up behind the head unit and use factory wiring to the doors from there.

Yeah, had a feeling I was wrong as I figured most everybody knows about the speaker adapters. This is the first time I see or hear anything about a plug in the door itself. My GMC has nothing like this, at least I don't think it does. Then again my Sierra is an old 2002 and I only replaced HU and speakers, not wires. Maybe this is something showing up newer generation vehicles. I guess that makes it easier to replace doors if the need ever arises. I was planning on running new wire but this might keep me from going that route. Could be a fun challenge though.

Got the 71's from http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/ and the 70's from www.crutchfield.com Google the numbers for the best price, found that bestbuy also carries one of them even cheaper.
