Default Basic ML TQWT Questions

Thanks to this forum my TQWT project is coming along very nicely. All the advice I have received on driver and timber selection has been incredibly helpful for someone as new to this as I am! So here are some further newbie questions -

For connecting the FE167E driver to the speaker terminals I'm thinking of using this product -

http://www.soundlabsgroup.com.au/p/A...15mm+Cryogenic

will this work well as a hook up wire? am I way off?

likewise for damping I am planning on using this stuff -

http://www.soundlabsgroup.com.au/p/V...+for+20+Litres

good idea? Since I really have no experience in speaker building, even the most basic advice will be helpful! thanks a lot!

Silver wire has its adherents (as does cryo). My experiences with silver speaker wire so far have not been all that positive... for your 1st build i'd just use 2 strands of solid core Cat 5. If you "upgrade" later you will at least have a reference.

ouch... paying $20 for 125g of sheeps wool in Australia (aren't there more sheep than people?).

Polyfluff is fine, doesn't get eaten by moths and stays where you put it. Ans costs a lot less.
