I'd welcome it very much if you have a better technique to share.
Yes, as mlloyd1 pointed out, I would expect heat shrink to work quite well. Superior to cable ties? Perhaps not significantly so.

I'd stick with the cable ties for now, will try the heat shrink tubes in another project though...

I actually have both sets of the MJW and the MJL... I'm just looking for enough reason to use the bigger ones I guess...

If you are using multiple pairs then the little brother may give adequate cooling/dissipation.
If you are using big brother than a one pair output stage is more feasible.

Why does the Forum still allow remote server locations for automatically downloaded pics?

Excellent point, I might just be wasting Big Brother for this amp if 3 pairs of Baby Brother is more than enough...

That's one point each for Big Brother and Baby Brother then...
