    1/0 copper ring terminals for the cheap

    http://www.ryderfleetproducts.com/cg...m.0&oid=152310

    .46 cents a piece

    i just ordered 100 of these for myself for my install. hell of alot cheaper than other terminals BUT visually they arent as appealing but when my batteries will be hidden i dont really care. i need so many so i figured id find the cheapest i could find.

    oh and i picked up this crimping tool since after doing my last van my hand about fell off when using a hand crimping tool so i said F THAT.
    AND the crimping tool was made in america so thats one reason i bought this particular one because i would rather try to help our economy out. i know its not much but ever little bit helps.

    In theory, the all copper rings offer better conductivity and less resistance. In a real world application, I highly doubt you will be able to tell the difference.

    I used the all copper rings when I helped my grandfather and uncle wire up their boats with 2 and 4 gauge welding leads for wire. I also used them in my 1997 civic because they were less expensive than the standard car stereo ones.



    Goodbye pudknockers.

    $8 for orders under $100? Thats alot?

    Thats pretty cheap. I get them local for $1 bt this is pretty cheap.

    On the hammer crimper, I bought one about a year and a half ago, havent used it yet. I guess it kind of scares me. I solder them on. If I can put the ring in my vise and pick the workbench off the ground by the wire then thats strong enough for me.

    Be careful, the .14 cent terminals probably won't work very well with standard 1/0 car audio power/ground wiring. In my experiences the 4/0 gauge terminals are generally what is needed for 1/0 gauge car audio wiring. I may very well be wrong, but this is what happened to me once upon a time when I bought terminals from weldingsupply.com.
