We always solder the connectors. We also use 24g solid core wire so that makes it fairly easy.

Thanks for the visual tutorials guys :-) any tips on soldering, since I cannot for the life of me solder. It's like playing a musical instrument - you can either do it or not ;-)

trust me, soldering is much easier to learn than playing even chopsticks on your kid's toy piano, or Louie Louie on a six string

I'm gonna have problems them. FYI, my music teacher in junior high called me the worst music student she'd even have - I was totally inept (and totally not interested in music at that age). ;-)

$hit, that was 'sposed to be encouragement to by a cheap solder gun or iron and clandestinely practice late at night in the basement -- unless you already use that time for other purposes

normally, I'd encourage multitasking as good brain exercise, but a hot soldering gun/iron is not a plaything

That's OK, you weren't to know that I'm musically inept! My dad has a soldering gun, but I don't know if it's really that good or not. I could try, but I think it'll look ugly ;-)

Good news though - Ben and Sounds with style can offer me a complete package (built). Think that I might play it safe and go that way!

Thanks for the encouragement though!

Dave

HPH,

If I may be allowed to jump in - the hole in the back panel of the kit is for binding posts. I am attaching a picture of one similar to what Mr. Dave and Mr. ChrisB use.

You can use different type if you want to.

What Zia said. We use the same but the posts have plastic nuts which we prefer (esthetically & sonically)
