    Depends on how often you're going to want to disconnect them. An extra connector at the end of the wire is just another place where there could be a vulnerability to poor contact.

    The best thing to have doe was got QED Airlocs fitted when you bough the cables. Not sure if anybody will do it after they've been purchased though, could be worth a look.

    I don't mind doing the soldering! it's just making sure I get some decent plugs!

    Couldn't get the fitted as I did the install myself & buried all the cables in the walls. :smashin:

    The search continues.........
