    When installing set screw connectors to the ends of speaker wire, what is the best way to do it? Do I put the set screw directly on the bare wire or do I push the wire in as far as it goes and screw the set screw on the outer shielding?

    The screw is what makes the mechanical & electrical contact to the wire. You want to clamp down on the metal, not the insulation.
