    I don't know what they are called, but I'm having a hard time with the little connectors that are used on the sub's terminals and the inside of the binding post. They look like a 'B' if turned the right way. Anyway, how do I attach these for a tight fit? They slip on and off really easily, and even when I pushed them with pliers to bend them tighter, they still slipped off very easily. Is there a trick to this I am missing? I don't want to have to open up the sub just because a cable slipped off. Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    I just use the crimpers to bend the loops on the "B" in so that it is a tight fit. Those connectors are called female spade connects I believe. I always solder to the binding posts though. Makes it easy to disconnect the speaker and you don't have to worry about the wires coming off the binding post if it is in a hard to reach place.
