Fellow enthusiasts, I am seeking advice from someone with more experience regarding electronic components and wiring. I have been on and off designing a case for my Bel HCC15-3-AG linear power supply.
I will be using a Hammond 1426Y case, which leaves just enough space to place some connections on the panel. I will use a Schaffner FN9262B-10-06 for input and, for now, one speakON output with a Neutrik NLT4MP. As my system grows, I foresee that I will add extra speakON outputs, powering more modules.
The transformer unit features 5 inputs that can be connected in different manners to specify which voltage is being used. I would like to design this in a way that requires no re-soldering when changing to a different voltage input. This where I need the most advice.
The input connections are solder terminals, and these are less wide than the smallest spade crimp connector. I’ve though about soldering a male spade crimp connector to these to have them be in one of the standard sizes. I do not know how well I would be able to crimp these together and if it would be a lasting connection. This would facilitate the connection between the Schaffner AC input module and the transformer.
Another advantage would be allowing me to use female spade connectors that are piggybackable. Thus, leaving the ease of access for the 100V and 120V specified in the table below. The alternative to the piggyback connectors would be a daisy-chained cable.
Regarding the dual gauge solder turret outputs (picture below). How would you advise I handle these in a multi-output connection scenario? What I mean is, how do you suggest I wire them, anticipating multiple speakON outputs. The speakON connector linked above has spade (flat tab) connections.
Some pictures of the pieces.

Hopefully this entire process becomes some sort of guide for the future adventurers.
