I was wondering if soldering with 2% silver (rest lead/tin) is ok for HT. (Deans silver solder) I got some silver audioquest spades that I can't crimp with a normal tool. So I've soldered them to 12 gauge home depot wire. I also solder the speaker wire to my drivers and will solder the wire to my plate amp when I get it. Most of the reason is I don't have the money for crimping parts and tools. I just read that crimping provides a better connection on some guys site due to air tight and flawless finish.... I've been soldering for years due to my electric RC car racing so am experienced with making connections. It wouldn't be a problem if I had to resolder a driver or terminal as I resolder battery and motor connections all the time. I just keep seeing everyone using crimping and connectors in home theater. Does the tin/lead solder affect sound?
