      Is 1 better than the other for the connection on the speaker side. About to finish a setup for a pair of PS95s and just need to connect the wires to the drivers and then screw them in

      Personally I prefer solder. Sometimes those crimp ons get in my way.

      Thanks. That’s what I was leaning towards but thought the crimper would be an option. I’ll see if I can get outside today and solder up the speakers.

      It’s an option. Not saying one is better than the other.

      I do make my speaker holes tight and more confident in the connection with soldering. Plus some terminals on some speakers are not that securely mounted to the basket and are little weak to be pushing on crimp style terminals.

      I was able to get them soldered up yesterday so pretty much buttoned up.
