Default Polk Audio Speaker Help

I have a 1999 Saab 9-3 hatchback, and I just got this 6 speaker set:

They fit fine, it's just the wiring for the speakers is not compatible. i know that i need a wiring harness, but i can't find one, anyone got any suggestions? and i was also told to cut the factory connector off of the wiring, and the splice the wires right onto the speakers, as an alternative. should i go with the splicing, or try and find a compatible wiring harness?

Default car stereo wiring

If you decide to cut the wire harness you have to take the passenger seat out and bypass the factory amp under neath the seat. being that the wires behind the head unit are signal wires and not speaker wires putting any sort of power on them (from the aftermarket head unit) will sound very distorted, loud and probably blow them.
