Riveted Tinsel Wire Terminals

Recommended Posts

I've been working on restoring a pair of speakers.  Upon taking them apart, I found this...

And on the other side, this is what I have...

The good news is that I found out why the speaker was buzzing. ;)

The other woofer was much better and still had the stock terminals.

I've cobbled together a temporary solution.

I'll use some Locktite on the nut for now, but can apply some solder between the nut and bolt if I want the connection to be permanent.

I'd like to restore the first speaker to something closer to the stock connector.  I've already spent hours searching the web for a suitable replacement.  I haven't found anything that is even close.  Does anyone know a source for this type of riveted tinsel wire terminals?
