Do you guys know where I can buy some good terminal cups online, or in a store for that matter. I looked on SonicElectronix, but the shipping is like 3x more than the cups, and at crutchfield they were really cheap and shotty looking.


Thanx

while you are there at parts express pick up some other stuff too, unless you want to pay like $7 in shipping for $3 terminal cups.

ahh thats the problem with ordering stuff at places like that

Case in point. I need some stuff from Digikey. Well its only 4 dollars worth of items
But sub $25 dollar orders get a $5 handling fee on top of shipping
so i'd end up paying like $15 bucks to ship 4 dollars worth of crap.

Better to spend $30 and get alot more stuff.

i get mine at a local hispanic owned stereo shop. they're a great hole-in-the-wall shop. only place that carries terminals and carpet for my needs.

the radio shacks around me ***** arse. I wouldn't rely on them at all. i've went to 3 radio shacks once to find they all didn't have the terminal i needed because i bought them all from one store and the other two doesn't carry the same ones.

i'm sure they have a wholesale license. If I need enough of a certain product, the owner can get it for me. I can get a whole roll of carpet for about $60 from him (beats $5 a yard) , and terminals for cheap if i get enough... but I don't need that much. 3" terminal cups for $2.50/ea. can't complain.

hi welcome to radio shack,
sorry we're out of speaker terminals
would you be interested in a cell phone or some batteries?


that's all i hear.


when they actually do have the terminals.. I have to wait like 15 minutes in line behind someone paying and asking questions about they cell phone bills.
