I'm not saying that soldering doesn't work (because obviously it does), but it gives the cable a weak spot.

Edit: Sorry, double post, and I can't delete it =/

Every cable is absolutely about how you route it...If you aren't stressing a cable (because it is routed properly,) it can't cause damage to these supposedly weaker soldered joints. Soldering multiple cables together, if done properly, IN NO WAY WEAKENS YOUR CABLES.

This is why those of us who have been doing this for several years make all of our own cables. We understand that in order to route them properly, you have to make them properly.

Here is a post that shows a well soldered dual wire connection...(his soldering isn't that clean, but the process is correct.)

Well, after consulting many topics about this matter, about 90% of them states that crimping is better than soldering, because of the weak link.

Do you have any evidence where it says that soldering is better then crimping and why? Because I would like to know which is better, and maybe I'm just looking at the wrong topics. I don't want to cause any trouble here between who is wrong or who is right tongue.gif.

I'm aware, and with the right crimper I agree that it is fine.

But something tells me that a guy who doesn't already know the correct method to do what he wants probably doesn't have the right crimper.

For multiple wires..soldering is always better than crimping. Crimps are designed for one wire only.

I'm not big of a fan of soldering, sorry smile.gif. But if you say so, I'll put my trust in you.

Some connectors it doesn't matter (example being a fat 4 pin) but on your smaller connectors, you are better off with a soldered joint. The advantage to a soldered joint is that it ensures a solid connection which can be very difficult to achieve on smaller crimps.

And just for the record..I hate soldering too...I'm lousy at it...smile.gif
