Love the Cardas, use them in majority of projects required

Paul, the WBT low mass are as close to soldering the speaker cable to the crossover wire as you can get. If you look at a pic of them you can see it's a copper ribbon that is gold plated. Instead of soldering directly to the WBT you can actually put the internal wire sideways on the ribbon and fold over and then crimp the connector, and only add solder after. It's a great sounding connection.
Looks like Cardas and WBT are some favorites, there both in my price range. My concern with WBT is crimping wire does this mean it's a little tricky to remove if crossover needs to be removed in the future? The monitors these will be going in were bought for second system with the intent to mod, changing caps, wire and dampening in the future. If anyone compared Cardas and WBT sonics did you notice treble was tipped up, or veiled, one vs the other.
I had the WBT posts on my Acoustic Imagery Ncore amplifiers and experimented with internal hook-up wire. I used the Furutech gold crimp sleeves shown in the link below and they worked great....made a secure connection that could be removed as-needed. If you look at the connector end of the WBT binding posts, they are set up for this type of connection.
