Yet another soundbar question

So here's another one. I had the dual factory soundbar setup behind the rollbar, now I have made my TJ a half cab in hopes of keeping it warm at the minus 30 temperatures we have in Alaska in the winters. The dual pods had to go and I purchased a single "factory" bar out of EBAY that mounts in front of the bar. This soundbar accepts a single connector while my factory wiring are two connectors, one for each speaker pod. Is there an adapter available somewhere to mate the two connectors to my one on the soundbar?
Thanks in advance for your help.

just run an extention from the (passenger?) speaker to the sound bar and splice the wires together.

oh and welcome to the forum!

1st. Welcome to the jeep forum.

2nd. Soft top for the winter in Alaska? I just spent my first winter with my jeep and I live in Maine. Get yourself a had top ASAP! I went through last winter in my soft top. Not a good idea. She warms up easy enough. But once it gets below freezing point, around 32F, pray that nothing hits the plastic windows. Any pressure and its like china glass, she'll just tear, shatter or split. I had to warm up the plastic, then take clear duck tape and put it on both sides of the holes and tears. Needless to say it kinda looks like shit now. I'm still in search for a new hard top now. I got another couple months before i need to really start worrying.

what you could do is drill a hole in both sides of the new soundbar and just extend the factory harness.
