I know there's the Metra 72-7800 for the door/deck speakers but are there any connector harnesses on the market for our tweeters??

I've just recently picked up a Line Out Converter, the Audio Control LC8i and a Four.1i In Dash for bass adjustments and want to swap out the factory door speakers+tweeters and add my 10" sub plus amps for the lot.

I don't want to cut any of the factory wires but could tap into them if I have to but ideally someone out there makes an exact connection harness adapter for our tweeter wiring similar to the Metra 72-7800??

I have the factory 180 watt 8 speaker system in my Hatchback LX (Canadian) with the 7" infotainment which doesn't have an auxiliary port from factory but the LC8i has an Aux input so once it's installed and tied into all speakers and sub, I'll be able to connect any audio source through a 3.5mm jack and keep the factory head unit.
I haven't started any of the install as I'm slowly but surely adding all the pieces to this puzzle and then will put it all together once everything is in hand.
Damn it tho, good audio equip ain't cheap!

I have looked all over and never found a harness for the tweeter!!
But when I finally decided to replace my speakers (I have 8 speaker setup) I chose to get a Hertz set (speaker, tweeter and crossover filter) and I ended up connecting the crossover to the speaker wire plug (coming from the head unit) with a harness for the speaker, as the wires going to the speaker and tweeter are 1 pair (in 8 speaker setup).
From the crossover, I connected the wires directly to the speaker and tweeter.

I just bought an extra set of OEM tweeters and cut the connectors off of them. They're only like $16/each, so not that much more than a harness would have cost if one was available.

Not quite as nice as a proper harness, but better than cutting the factory wires.

I just cut and soldered the front tweeters.

The rear will be more tricky, since the rear deck can't come back out if the tweeters are soldered. I'll either be making my own out of the factory tweeters or soldering some other connectors on the factory wiring.

I am disappointed there is no tweeter adapter on the market, just as I am disappointed there is no coupe rear speaker bracket.

The tweeter connection off of some older hondas are the same. I got tweeters from a junkyard '13 Accord I believe and made my own harness from that.
