I have an Audiovox CD1072 system that I no longer use, though I was hoping to be able to reuse the speakers. However, I'm not sure what kind of connector this is. Google hasn't helped a bit.

Connector:

Here's the port, just in case:

Is anyone familiar with this type of speaker connector, and if any converters exist for it (perhaps RCA)?

Thanks

[Looks like some kind of molex thing. Don't know more. Had some on some AV amps I used. Tend to fall out a lot, their locks aren't so great.

Those aren't common connectors A/V consumers (or even experienced hobbyists) are expected to adapt other systems to, so converters will not exist. Even if you were to discover the connection's proper name, in an attempt to rig one on your own, you will find that the sort of electrical parts stores that sell them will have them at a great price, 79 cents each, but you need to buy them in an absurd quantity like 100, and the shipping is another $7.95.


I think your best bet is to cut and splice into the bare wire part you seem to have access to, based on your photos, and use whatever kind of connection you like for your new application.

This is one of the less common connectors used for internal PCB leads. Take a look at mouser, digi-key, etc. they have those.

They look a lot like JST connectors to me. JSTs come in a variety of sizes though, all of which look pretty much the same but are physically of different size. The only doubt I have is the small dividing ridge in the socket and chamfered edges, which at least the smaller JSTs don't have - they are just plain "square".

A common adapter is available in most hardware stores:
