I'm embarassed to ask this, but I just wanted to be sure before I start. When using barrel connectors, do the two wires need to overlap before you crimp them together, or is the barrel connector a sufficient enough conductor where they don't have to overlap. I would overlap them just to be sure, but I think the diameter of the connectors I bought might not be big enough. Thanks for anyone's help.
a lot of people actually twist the wires before using a barrel connector, but i wouldnt only because sometimes you might break the wire when it twists and cause you headaches when you dont realize its broken, ususally (and i dont personally use these because working for a telecomunications company i have the best connectors 3M make) i just overlap them a few times.
