On Sony amps, the power connection will be marked "+12V," and will be a brass set screw connection. With your screwdriver, loosen the screw so there's about 1/8 inch of clearance between the screw and the base where it tightens down.</p></li> <li> <div class="stepBg">Step <span>2</span></div> <span class="image"> <a class="thickbox" href="http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto/Articles/4815042/128889_Full.jpg"><img alt="Spade connectors" src="http://i.ehow.com/images/GlobalPhoto/Articles/4815042/128889_Thumb.jpg" /></a><div class="caption" style="width: 101.0px;">Spade connectors</div></span> <p>Strip back the insulation of your power <u> <font color="#006400">Cable</font></u> so there is 1/2 inch of bare wire. Use your wire strippers to do this, and be careful not to cut into the bare wire. This can weaken it and may cause it to break later. Slip a spade connector over the wire and crimp it until it is securely fastened to the wire. Tug on the spade connector a few times to be sure it's solidly connected to the power cable.</p></li> <li> <div class="stepBg">Step <span>3</span></div> <p>Slide the forked end of the spade connector under the loosened set screw connection. With your screwdriver, tighten down the set screw until it holds the spade connector and the wire securely in place. Give the wire a gentle tug to be sure it's securely fastened to the amp's power terminal.</p></li></ol></div></div>
