SORRY, I think this may be more appropriate in the DIY forum. Excuse the goof. Ok, here's a question for you advanced DIYers out there: Do I have to stay with manufacturer recommended crimp tools and dies if I'm using their crimp connectors? In other words, if I'm using say, Canare XXX connectors and they recommend Canare Crimp Tool YYY and Die ZZZ, do I absolutely have to do this? The reason I'm asking is because I haven't decided what brand I want to go with and manufacturers like Canare and WBT (to name 2 prominent brands) recommend specific tools to go with their connectors. Does this mean I'll be "locked in" if I choose one over the other? Or is there a "universal" crimp tool out there that will work with both? Specifically, I'm curious about WBT's Topline RCA crimp-ons--just what difference will I get for $50/pair WBTs versus $5/pair Canares? I'd really love to see and hear for myself and figured it would be a fun project, but not for the dollars it would cost to get their recommended tools. Any help will be much appreciated.
