    A good example of why a terminal should be soldered, not crimped or screwed down.

    I know, I was shocked. Looks like it was assembled by a highschool car audio technician.

    Put some power threw connections like that and pretty soon you'll see smoke. I've seen a binding post melt the plastic it was in after an extended loud party.

    Especially if the connector is oversized when compared to the wire. I've seen it many times, especially in car audio.
