Default Links to speaker quick disconnects

Anyone have some good quick disconnect links for some 12g wire?

Also looking for 25' of 12g awg wire or better quality. I'm hoping to have everything in my hands by Wednesday.

If any member has the above fs, PM me!

They are made for RC cars that will send a lot more current through them than your amplifier will... unless you are running over 500watts a channel.

I did a 12g OFC search and found this.
Looking to push about 125-140w per channel on my zapco 150x4

I think in general the recommendation is to stick with OFC rather than the CCA wire. I got some KnuKoncepts 12AWG Kord in my amp kit and it's more than beefy. Looks like Amazon has that (Prime even) in 14AWG or 16AWG which I would think be plenty in your application for a few dollars more:

Also, not that it matters, but I opted to go with the XT60H connectors in black:

Way more tactical

Neutrik Speakon connectors, and Magomi 13ga multi core cable is hard combo to beat.

Also, do you guys leave the XT60H connector in the door or would you leave the connectors like under the door sill and then run the remaining wire to the speaker? Reading some reports that they aren't waterproof, but they look pretty water resistant at least to me. I figure it's not any worse than the speaker terminals being exposed as long as water isn't collecting in the connector.

Or add a dab of grease before connecting them.

Yea, those connectors are very snug, I don't anticipate any issues with water. A little dielectric grease might help them slide together easier if anything else, lol.

Yea, I was literally about to finish my order for the yellow ones and happened to see them in the "related items" list on Amazon, basically the one time their algorithm showed me something I actually wanted to buy instead, haha.

It's nice though because they will be tucked under the dash where you could potentially see them if you were under there, just helps with the stealthy install, minus the blue heat shrink for identification.

Was going to say, I use Monoprice cable for all my copper, and always the sheathed type which makes runs much more practical in a vehicle, with all the sharp metal and such going on under the carpet and panels. XT60 connectors (black would be very nice!) are a joy, and a staple since 2010 for me. Buy in bulk and don't worry about it, just make sure to get a brand that doesn't melt under standard soldering practices because those can ruin your day. Some brands are trash.

This was supposed to be ofc used with xt60 connectors. As you can see the heat shrink, the wire still corroded in less than a year. The foggy part is all corrosion.



Broke right off



Trying again


Just because I have 2000+ posts doesn't mean I have learned anything.
