New Door Speakers Question (PIC INCLUDED)

I bought these Pioneers for my truck today. They use to provide the female spade connectors but I guess they stop doing it.

I cannot find a spade connector ANYWHERE that will fit the smaller terminal on the speaker. It measures 1/8" wide and nowhere sells them and I can't find them talked about anywhere on the internet.

I don't have a sodering tool so this is my only option. Anybody know?

I cheat on the smaller terminal by taking the female connector and crimp it tighter with a plier. Works great for me!

a car audio place would have them for sure, possibly even radio shack.

Its strange they don't include them anymore...did you get them used or from a 2nd source?

I do see the slots on the sides of the styofoam but only one slot had tabe over it and it contained a couple of zip ties....I called Pioneer to ask them if they suppplied them and guy kinda hinted that they are just tring to say money. Going to try a car audio place today. Thanks for the help.

my local radio shack, O'Reilly, Autozone, and Best Buy all have them. So does the local Grainger. Most have the gold plated ones also. Radio Shack used to sell a set that was both sizes, 4 of each.

Honestly, just get regular spade connectors and squish them a little tighter with a pair of pliers, it works fine. I've done it plenty of times. Just give them a little tug when you put them on to makes sure they are tight enough, if not another little squeeze. Save the time, hastle and money and just do that.
