Plate Amp Binding Post Wire

Options
Recently got the amps repaired for my RT3000p’s. I changed the binding posts so can’t use the ring terminals that was originally used. Will need to cut them off and then will need to use a new small piece of wire. What kind of wire should be used for this. Since it’s to the binding posts can speaker wire be used or would chassis wire be better since it goes to the board?

    @Polk_Denon Who repaired your plate amps? Do you know what the problems were? What were the symptoms you experienced from both?

    If you can answer all 3 that would be great. I need to repair my plate amps and really and still trying to figure it out.

    Any decent speaker wire will do

    You may be able to remove the plastic collar and using small needle nosed pliers or an awl to lift the crimped wings on the ring terminals to remove them. I've used all three of these tools to do the same

    The guy on ebay that does them. I checked a few places local here and nobody would even look at them. The one was making a loud buzzing/hum type noise when turned on. I sent it and had it back within a week. Bunch of stuff on the board was replaced. My board also had the option of adding 2 more of the large filter caps so I had 4 new ones put in (was extra fee for this)
