Default speaker wiring in C5

I'm going to be replacing my door and rear hatch Bose speakers with aftermarket speakers. My question is Crutchfield offers a speaker wire adapter to be able to use the factory wiring plugs at the speakers do these factory wires run straight to the rear of the radio or due they go thru some other sound processor first? I have already replaced my factory radio with a Pioneer 4100 nex and i'm using the Axxess XSVI-2004 Wiring Interface. i will be removing the interface when i replace the factory speakers.
thanks

it keeps you from having to cut the wires and attach spades.

The adapters go on the rear speakers.

The front stock speakers have the small spade connector on the positive terminal. On the aftermarket speakers the smaller spade connector is on negative. You will have to swap them somehow or your front speakers will be out of phase.

Very helpful! My polarities were reversed after installing new 3.5's to the bose system. Swapped connectors, sounds great. Thanks a million!

Glad it worked out for you. It probably brought the mids back.
