CP, you can make an adapter fairly easily. Just take a sheet of heavy gauge copper, and cut out a strip, that is "U" shaped to fit on your binding post on one end, and has a hole or "U" shape cutout in the other to match the spade shape on the cable. Make it short. Then get a copper bolt and nut that is like about 1/4"-20 by 1/2" long, or something like that, and bolt the cable spade to the "U" shaped end of the adapter together, like a clamp. Then your speaker cable has this adapter held onto its spade connector by this bolt/nut as a clamp. The other end of it can fit right onto your speaker binding post. This way you don't have to permanently alter either the speaker or cable, and you have all copper pieces in the adapter, for good conductivity. No soldering, and you can do it all with tin snips. You can cover the exposed copper with shrink tube or electrical tape. It may not be a perfect solution, but it will work, and save the resale value of both speakers and cables, and the copper should allow it to sound pretty good.
