    I'm about to sell my Celestion G12H30 Heritage 55Hz and it looks like the terminals on it aren't those standard ones with the holes in it for you to mount the speaker wire. When I got the speaker, the wires were soldered to the terminals but I think the guy had just wrapped it around the terminal ends and then soldered (as opposed to threading it through the holes).

    Is this normal for those speakers and if not, is this a problem or should it work just fine?

    You have to solder those. There is no slip-on connector. Yes it's normal.

    So there isn't a hole in the middle of the terminal that you would normally thread the speaker wire through?

    so by normal terminal you mean, they had no holes in the middle of them for a speaker wire to be threaded???

    Yea, normal config. hole, to bend/crimp speaker wire, and apply solder..
    I could be using wrong terminology..(oh thats a pun)...

    Correct, no holes for the wire to be threaded through like in a normal spade terminal.

    The idea is you put the wire under the hook of the spare tang bend it back over the top to hold the speaker wire in place when soldering.

    If you're selling it, I'd unsolder any loose bits of wire and clean up the tangs so the hooks are visible for the next guy to solder his wires in place.

    ya mine only had the 1 terminal per positive and negative side, and there are no holes in the middle of the terminals to thread the speaker wire through. In essence each terminal is just a piece of metal jutting out from the speaker. Is this normal for this speaker, or should there be a hole in the middle of those terminals?

    thanks!! that's the exact answer I needed. I had only unsoldered the wire, but didn't spend the time to clean them terminals a lil bit.

    btw - i have this and a Fane Medusa 150 FS over on TGP and offsetguitars.com in case anyones interested. :p
