Default X over Build

When bldg a xover, can the inner coil lead touch the top of the coil as it goes out to its attachment point or should it not touch? Would wire shrink wrap isolate it and NOT melt?

There's lots of vibration and heating, so avoid that. The insulation could get worn away
eventually and cause a shorted coil.

Troels G seems to be OK without much support/insulation beyond the wire itsself:

If there's lots of vibration and heating in a crossover coil the installation needs a series review.
