Is it good or bad or crimp wires then solder?

Recommended Posts

So I have a hammer crimp. And I also have a blow torch for soldering. I know most people solder their wires for the best connection possible. I was wondering if I crimped my zero gauge wire first then soldered it, if that would make an even better connection. True? overkill? Let me know what you think! :)

If it's properly crimped you shouldn't be able to solder it.

That being said a lot of people's definition of "music" is a clipped 30 hz sine wave with some 80 IQ knuckle head grunting about committing crimes and his genitals.

Solder needs to be done properly as well and either crimp or solder works if done PROPERLY.

It depends in the terminal. If you have the ones with the split in them solder it. If it solid crimp or solder it.

True, didn't even think to ask what style terminals.
