I have a XPR4550 and obtained a HSN4032B speaker, I've checked and it is a 13W speaker which should work on the XPR4550. But, the speaker has a molex connector on the end and I would need to mod it to allow it to work.

My question is, can the connectors that are on the speaker be used in the accessory plug for the XPR4550, or is it too large to fit in the plug and I will have to order the PMLN5072A connector set?

You will need a 26 pin connector such as this one:

Or you can order the plug with the speaker wires already installed here:

I prefer to go the ultimate route and get the plug with speaker, ignition sense and programming cables already installed for a good plug and play setup. Just ordered one of these yesterday.

I use this cable from this seller, but I go one step further. I have him attach the molex connector on the cable assembly to match the one on the factory Motorola speaker. But lately I have made my own cable from a USB printer cable, & the rear plug which comes in the box with a new XPR4550 radio. And the ign trigger works very nice in the car, by allowing the radio to turn on, & off with the ignition key.
