    Very Loud Pop through Speakers when I turn power on my pre-amp

    Always turn on your power amp on last and off first, this would eliminate the problem. Probably just a transient but if loud enough could be bad for speakers.

    tinsel leads

    Benihana, I see your problem. I don't see the harm in trying crimping , but you may want to ask someone on the Parts Express Tech Talk forum , lot's of DIY speaker builders there, surely you will get some ideas there pretty quickly. I've posted there and always got great advice.

    tinsel leads

    If you're referring to a detached speaker wire lead, there's no reason you can't crimp on a female disconnect, providing the driver has appropriate lugs to accept it. If it's a tweeter crimping may be preferable to soldering, too much heat can damage a tweeter easily.
