Wire Connections

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

its been a while since I've been on here.

I love RE audio equipment, however I've been having a problem lately with one of their amps. It works great as long as it can hold onto my power and ground wires D:

Is there a better way to use the terminals on their amps?

such as this one:

and by use, I mean, is there a more secure way than just putting bare wire in there and tightening it down?

the connection is loose? can you describe what you think it might be?

is your wire 4gauge? or smaller? maybe the wire is not thick enough?

Raise the screws, put the power wire in, screw the terminals down. If the wires are coming out you either don't have it tight enough, or you're using way too small of wire.

i pulled out my dick in class many of times and had it shown. get over it bitch...stupid open legged hairy beavered bitch...

going over rms = smaller box, under rms = bigger box...

Low voltage doesn't blow amps. That's a myth.

A router that does the sub holes makes rounded edges also?

I did that :( and I'm using 4ga knu wire.

the amp recommends 4ga so I dont understand why it wont stay in properly.

Did you not cut enough wire sheath maybe? Possibly not enough is going into the connector? Otherwise I'm stumped man... You could try removing the screw completely and going to Lowes and purchasing the same exact screw but longer???

yeah :\ I'm stumped too. do you think tinning the exposed end of wire with solder could make for a more secure connection? I dunno if my local lowes would have the right set screws lol

you will need like 1/2in or slightly more exposed wire, feed in all the way until it wont accept anymore and while holding it in, tighten a lot! tug on it to see if it is loose, otherwise, idk.

right the only 2 problems it could be is A your not unscrewing the screw far enough when inserting the wire (if you only lift the screw 1/4 of the way shove the wire as far as it will go then tighten then its not really securing the wire) or B your not stripping the wire long enough. The solution to the problem is take the screw all the way out. as long as u don't loose them then you can put the wire in and look in the hole. see if the wire goes all the way back and when it does then hold the wire pushing in on the terminal and sharamer the screw

theres no such thing as too expensive when it comes to upgrades like that, because imo if you are gonna spend to upgrade then do it correctly rather then be a cheap ass ricer
