Guys, I hear people talking about molex plugs on this site all the time, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what kind to use and where to buy the friggin things.

I'm looking for basic quick connects for speaker leads, I'm using the spade connectors from auto stores, but anyone with experience with these know that the crimp connectors are not the best. I'd love to be able to solder them and be done, but then there is no insulation.

Online vendors are preferred for sure, I need them to ship to Canada.

Thanks!

PE has lot's of goodies that's for sure but be prepared to pay three times the price of the plugs for shipping :eek:

I bought some banana plugs and wire terminals last week and the shipping charge doubled my final price.

Check out this site:
Anderson Powerpoles:

A dozen different colors and current capacities. They worked out really well. I have them between my terminal blocks and all amps as well as between the amps and all my speakers. I can disconnect everything in a minute or two with out pulling any fuses or worrying about shorting a wire.

there are tons of suppliers, even ebay can get you good deals. if you are looking to make your own quick-connects, then i would stick to something more widely available, like gm weather-pack, and alike. you can crimp those with genaric roll-crimpers. also, if you want to stick to spades, or similar, like bullet connectors, phillips makes some good quality ones for a reasonable price, and where insulation is an issue, you can solder all you like, and slip some good heat-shrink over them
