    Icon32 Need HELP on whether to solder or not.

    Ok, so I ordered some Rockford Fosgate P2L 212"s and a 2000w Power Acoustik amp the other day. I just wanted a little 'kick' in my 1978 Delta 88 Olds trunk. They finally came in today and I have run into a debate.

    Should I solder the speaker wire ends that connect my subs to my amp to prevent fraying, splitting, and rusting? It might make a better connection but I have also heard that doing that might cause interference, and not make it sound as good. If you guys have any answers or opinions, that would be helpful. Thanks.

    Tinning the wires is in no way going to hurt your sound quality.

    Yeah thanks, that's what I thought. I don't know why, but I just heard that it did and was very confused because it wouldn't seem like it would do anything.
