These Belkins are great for DIY. They use a set screw to attach, and will take a 12 gauge cable. Also, if you buy one of these sets, the Spade connectors unscrew from the ends and you can change them to these BFA Banana connector which is convenient if you bring in a different component that works better with one connector vs the other. They're reasonably priced and good quality - you can find them on ebay, or buy direct from Belkin, probably other retailers too.
I have ordered these with good results. Very nice connectors for the money. As far as I can tell they are identical to the Knukonceptz connectors. Also, they are simple to attach to cable.
They seller ships quickly but it still takes a week. Good luck.
Thanks guys, appreciate all the input within such a short time.
Guess the bare wire might just be the way to go, just have to look at my binding posts on the amps since I'm not sure if I can go bare wire there, but I'll find out when I get home today.
We have a ton of wire in all sorts of gauges here at work which I could use to try out and replace it with some better cable.
As usual you've been let down by the Shacks uneducated staff. Their advertising claim: "You've got questions, we've got answers" is seldom true as you found out. When shopping the shack you need to look at the catalog (do they still have one?) or the website first, find the part number and say "give me x amount of this stock number" to the shack "rep". Here is your part number: 278-311 a pack of color coded(black/red) spades for 10-12 gauge wire. $5.99 for an 8pk.
