Default Quick disconnects?

Are there any quick disconnects in form of a single plug? I'd like my father to be able to unplug one big plug and 2 pair of rcas instead of doing wire by wire type of deal. So far, I'd like to see 6 speaker wires terminate on one big plug. Anything like that available?

Thanks

They make Molex connectors in various configurations, any electronics place will usually carry them. Something like this...


Alpine 7998*Phass MW160*Clarion APA4320*Peerless 2"*Seas Neo*Next VRz4.400*OZ ME12*PG x400.1

Premier 860MP*PG Zeropoint ZCS6*Pioneer SW-2541D*Sony ES XM-5046

any electronics store. different brands sell different plugs. everything from one quick disconnect to a plug with fifteen lines or even more. the pins can be tiny or very large, and some places even sell screw on type military connectors that are vibration proof.

can find plugs that are panel mount, surface mount, and cable mount.

check out what your local electronics store has. I typically buy my molex plugs from frys electronics. I use .062" pins, .096" pins, and I think .08" found on hard drive power connections. I use TONS of those in my car.

I too am looking for something like this.

I would love some solid connectors for my speakers so I can unplug them to work on stuff if need be. I only found one connector like that on PartsExpress, but it says 18-22 gauge.

Think I could get away with fitting 14 gauge speaker wire in those?

yep. it will if the jacket is small. I use .093 all the time.

18 gauge fits easily in .062, and some 16 gauge wires will fit also.

also. buy the pin extractor. Its a ripoff, and you will be SO GLAD you have it.

Something like this below might work (you would need both sides) but you cannot screw it down to the box. You can get the inserts in many different gauges of wire.

Delphi Packard Connector

That's teh ones I recommend. I know Ford is using a lot of them in newer vehicles, and they're sturdier than any Molex ones I've used. I think Waytek carries them in many different configurations. Also check Mouser.

I gots no stereo for now......

Yes, Waytek carries them in quite a few different configurations but they have a minimum for item you have to buy. You would need to buy around 100 of the little metal inserts (I believe there minimum per item is either $5 or 100 pcs). I buy all my crimp rings at Waytek. They are the cheapest and nicest that I have used (around $00.60 per 2/0 tinned crimp ring). Very are heavy duty and you can get them in tinned or copper finish.

x2 on the pin extractor. IIRC it's like $7 at radio shack. Good luck fitting 14AWG, i can definitely say that 12 streetwires twisted pair does not fit well w/.093 (it can be done, but it's tough, and you have to trim out some of the wire). canare 16AWG fits easily.

I'd also recommend soldering the wires because they have a tendency to pull out when just crimped. that is a good way to let the magic smoke out of your amplifiers.
