    speaker adapters vs soldering

    is it better to get speaker wiring harnesses so you dont have to vut any wires? or to cut them and add yyour own connectors?

    Re: speaker adapters vs soldering

    If it's a newer car through a dealer, or if it's not paid off, use adapters. If they see that you've cut electrical lines, they'll throw a fit. Especially if you're interested in keep any sort of warranty.

    ...

    And you know they probably use leaded in your amp. So...

    A proper wire-wire solder joint is with a lot of direct copper-copper contact area. And anyways, havn't you heard of pretinned copper wire? That's not silver solder.

    Re: speaker adapters vs soldering

    A correctly done solder joint would be best, though for reasons mentioned above it would be better to use a harness.

    Re: speaker adapters vs soldering

    You can buy solder on speak on connectors so you can just attach regular speaker wire to them and power the speakers off the receivers built in amps however I would not push it very hard as the Pyles require a fair bit more power than your receiver can produce and will overload it if pushed hard.

    I despise electrical tape.

    Alas, it does have it's uses.

So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
