How do I connect speaker wire to this speaker connection?

Ok, so I'm trying to finish installing my system... I'm just not sure how to connect the speaker wire to this sub.

Each sub has two of these connections:

you can either get what look like little square connectors that just plug on to that or solder it.

HA! You have to solder. I have connectors like that for the speakers on my guitar amplifier. If you can find the right connectors, it should slip right on. I prefer soldering for a more secure connection.

Make sure you calculate the right resistance when you wire your subs. If you wire them parallel (most common) resistance = 1 /sum of resistance on subs. If you wire in series (straight line) its just resistance + resistance. If you don't match resistance right to your amp, you're getting less power and could possibly damage your system. But you already knew that. Good luck and post when you get it working. thumbsup

the "slip ons" are called spade connectors, for easy connection and removability(new word) I would go spade, for best connection definitly solder them
