  • Crimp Connector for Exciter Install

    This is going to seem like a stupid question, but I'm at a loss. I'm looking to the right crimp connector to attach my speaker wires to my exciter posts. I purchased a DAEX25FHE-4 and am going to test one of them out in the space that I have, and I want to do a fast crimp connection. One, because I'm only hooking it up as a test setup to see how it works and will be removing the wire and using it as project speaker elsewhere if it doesn't work out. And two I don't have a soldering setup.

    I tried brass crimp rings but they were all too small for the wide terminal (at least the ones I found at my local store. The only ones that look like they could work are the female quick disconnects and I would crimp both the wire side and the QD side (although I don't think thats how you are supposed to use them). Surely some of you have used crimp connections to install exciters, right?

    Measure them and then get the correct size, try an auto parts store if the hardware store doesn't have them. It's a standard faston push connector. You only crimp the wire into the connector. The female connector is designed to slide on and grab without any additional crimping.

      You could solder on a pigtail that goes to an external connector. Something like an XT60.

        I bought these because I have mostly banana plug speaker cables. For me, unplug from box speakers, plug into panels. I haven't actually built them yet.
