So. As you have seen here in the forum there is alot of speaker uppgrading and swaping to improve the sound of our Renegades. Me personaly I have a Renegaded Limited 2015 with Beats by Dre sound.

And for the subwoofer place I have orderd a Kicker 672 subwoofer.
I need help with what speaker adapter to use where,

400667205953 this is the eBay number of the ones I purchased today. Will be here tomorrow so can update then. Also ordered the kicker 3.5inch speakers. Again should be here tomorrow or Thursday. If I've got it wrong on the connectors I will let you know. I pulled the speakers out before ordering to check.

am keen to hear if they fit. ex work colleagues in the US who were meant to be sending me a set of metra 71-039c's have sent 72-6514's instead (fit the door speakers)...so I'm still sitting here 4 weeks on with Kicker dash speakers but no wiring adaptors.

So I got the connectors today and bugger me i got the wrong ones. Look the same but we're smaller, How ever I have found some others. That look similar. This is the connector in the car. If all else fails I'm going to maplins and will make some. if I do I will let you know.

I've got a nephew in Washington who has agreed to (hopefully) buy the correct ones and post them over...but if adaptors that fit are available in the UK that'll be a big help to everyone wanting to upgrade their dash speakers.

i should have the speakers and connectors by Friday this week , im hoping this set of cables solves the issues so we dont have to order overseas as its a pain and can cost a load in import taxes
im making a trip to maplins over the weekend any way so may end up making some sets , if they work out i will add a link for nay one buy them at cost of bits or supply the part numbers so you can make your own

the import taxes aren't an issue..I got sets of Metra 72-6514's from China and the US for the door speakers and there is no tax, but postage from the US is quite high. Main issue for dash speakers is that the adaptors that fit are metra 71-039c and the only place in the world that I have found so far to sell them is Crutchfield in the US and they don't ship abroad.

i was having a think that it might be worth changing the plug end totally , for a more standard one with the same size pins for an easy swap . lets face it ,unless i buy another Renegade i wont need the speakers again after im done with the car . and the ones in the dash dont even weigh enough to use as paper weights .

thats true...my nuclear option is to cut the integral plug plus terminals off the premium speakers and solder them onto the new speaker terminals. But I'm prepared to wait a couple of weeks more before doing so.

NOOOOOO!

Seriously don't. If you want to commit because the stockers suck, take the connectors off that end and make something out of them. We have at least one forum member who has successfully done that.
