    wiring subs to box terminals

    I have kind of a noob question, just curious on how to wire subs to prefab box terminals. In other words, what kind of connectors would i use on the box terminal end of the speaker wire, soldering isnt an option for me. Thanks

    Depends entirely on the terminals. If there's a threaded stud and nut on the back side, then you use a ring terminal crimped to the wire. If it's just a solder lug, then you have to solder.

    Sounds like you need female quick disconnects. Walmart, auto parts store, basically anywhere has them.

    Most prefab terminals use spade connectors

    Why not solder? It is WAAAAY better than your typical connector....when done correctly.
