Can you clarify what exactly you want to do? It sounds like you want to do speaker swaps. How about putting spade lug connectors at the wire ends that connect to the speakers? That would make a solder-less connection at the speaker itself.

What JB said. Those connectors are like 50c each and you can crimp them on with a pair of pliers.

If you also wanted stereo/mono switching you could get that done ( I am assuming you have the same size jackplate in your 4x12 now, with at least 2 jacks in it) replace one jack with a switching type to do that.

Any chance places like home Depot or the source have these crimp connectors?
I used to buy them at Radio Shack, when they were the go-to place for small audio parts. After that, I found them at Home Depot. You might find them in similar hardware or electronics stores.

In general, unless you intend to swap your speakers frequently, soldering is actually preferred. Not just to maintain a solid connection for the health of your amp, but also to reduce the chance of vibrations resulting from loose crimp terminals (which some people don't know how to fix and/or blame the speaker for being defective.)

Thanks for the info. I was on your site and wanted to buy the complete 4x12 wiring harness but it said you don't have the required length of 18g wire. Is there any way you could do one up for me? You can pm me.if you prefer.

Thanks

That's odd because we definitely have enough wire. I took a look at our back-end system and it should be corrected now.
