I built my own speakers last year and hard wired the speaker wires directly into the crossover board inputs. I find that there is a bit less distortion and noise than if the signal passes through three sets of soldered connections. Think about it...you terminate speaker cables with soldered spade lugs...then it hooks to speaker terminals that are soldered to wire that leads to the crossover...finally those wires are then soldered to the pc board containing the crossover. Additionally, the output wires are soldered to the outputs on the crossover and then soldered to the drivers themselves. That's a lot of solder folks!
