    Re: All The Little Things...

    I get so frustrated having to come up with all the little parts, every time I buy something from parts express, I get more-connectors,input terminals, ect. My weakness used to be buyout tweeters, now I am trying to build a whole set of crossover caps for testing.

    I worked in car audio, so i always have a full connector box.......and extra.......

    If the ALIEN detector was 1/10th of 74 dollars I may get one just so I can write such a informative review.....and tell people I have one....

    Really? Then why does it get reviews like this one?

    "All The Little Things..." is something my wife tells me when I start to open my mouth about anything speaker related.

    But, for some reason a project is not complete unless it involves a few unplanned trips to Lowe's.

    A new dishwasher. This is a lot quicker than trying again to fix the old junk heap. That way I actually have time to do some DIY.

    I have enough shrink-tubing in the appropriate sizes. I use the shrink-tube over the crimp connectors and any directly-soldered joints...I also use it for polarity ID or color-coding so I know which wires go to which driver(s).

    Caps, coils, resistors, terminal cups/binding posts?

    Re: All The Little Things...

    Make sure I have enough solder. Sandpaper in the various grits, and more hot glue sticks! Before I start cutting, I get some replacement cartridges for my particulate respirator. Cheap and easy to replace; simple thing for protecting your lungs, especially cutting/routing MDF. Keeping the correct lube for my router bits that have bearings. Enough of that cleaning sauce for the bits and saw blades. I've amassed a large selection of different screws, both machine thread and coarse thread. I replenish my stock of crimp-terminals and make sure I have enough shrink-tubing in the appropriate sizes. I use the shrink-tube over the crimp connectors and any directly-soldered joints...I also use it for polarity ID or color-coding so I know which wires go to which driver(s). Do I have enough wood glue and epoxy? Are my tools in good working order? Anything questionable or broken? Recheck my order, are there any items that I could stock up on? Caps, coils, resistors, terminal cups/binding posts? How about stuffing or egg-crate foam, maybe some grill cloth or those liitle magnets you can attach a grill with. Finishing supplies such as tung oil, clean wiping cloths, gel stain and gel poly top-coats. Oh, a good supply of utility knife/razor blades and/or Xacto knife blades. Nothing can ruin a veneer trim faster than a dull razor-knife blade.

    FYI, JL Audio sells boxes of quick-disconnect terminals for 16AWG, 12AWG, and 8AWG wire. They're not insulated, but they're nice because they have three sizes of female for each.

    IIRC they were clearing out packs with 30 or so of each size (190 total) for around $10 a box. Perhaps they still are.

    They're nicely-built terminals. Thin enough to be easy to crimp with a hand-crimper, thick enough to hold on once crimped. Only real complaint is that the plastic blister is secured with metal inserts, so you need a screwdriver to open it.
