I'm building my box and I was wondering what is best to use binding post or terminal cups?

I was looking these:
Madisound Speaker Store (http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/terminal-cups/input-cups-nr-cup/)

Dayton Audio BPA-38SN HD Binding Post Pair Satin Nickel 091-1247 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=091-1247)

Is there a better way?

I don't use either.

Drill a hole in the box just big enough for your speaker wire to fit. Run wire directly from the sub to the amp thru the hole.
Seal the hole w/ either caulk or hot-glue. Cheaper and a better connection.

1/4" brass bolts pounded into the hole from the inside of the box. Washers, lockrings, nuts etc on top. All available from the plumbing section at the Depot.

This, direct to the sub FTW.
