General Car Audio Discussion & QuestionsAll general car audio discussion goes here. Need help installing speakers, headunits, amps or electrical? Having problems with equipment? Have questions about a product, post here.
i just ordered a 0 gauge amp kit for my jeep. i am just debating on how i want to do the ring terminals crimp or solder. i keep on here that soldering the 0 gauge sucks. can i see picks of people soldered 0 gauge wire.
Technically you cant "crimp" without a hydraulic crimper.
The fastest way is to hammer them. Makes a sufficient connection, not the best.
Soldering makes the best connection when done correctly, but take some time.
I have tested that amp about a bazillion times. I know what it does clean, clipped, dirty, loaded, unloaded, wired down, low voltage, good voltage, after it hot, while it's cool, on caps, on batts, where it protects, what's thermal limits are and just about anything else anyone would care to know about it.
But thanks for chiming in. Your opinion is duly noted.
I cut my wire a little bit longer than the input on the ring terminal and hammer it down, then use a flat head screwdriver and hammer 2 extra dents in it. I don't know if the flat head helps it hold any better but it seems to.
