Can someone help me with recommendations for DIY speaker wire terminations; either banana or spades to my M&K 150THX speakers? That's one of my next issues to tackle.
Thanks

Just look for banana or spades on eBay, thats a good place to start. as long as the wire makes a good connection just simply using the 5-way binding posts to secure them is often enough. Don't buy into the expensive ones as there is no difference in quality that you can audibly hear.

I've been interested in terminations that are not too difficult, but have non-tarnish finish to keep the connection good. Is that a perferred option? or just good old high quality copper, treat w antioxident tighten and go from there?

The gold plated ones would be better but can still be found for very little.

Any difference between terminations with rhodium, nickel, platinum, gold, silver, etc? other than price?

Not really, its more of a gimmick. I highly doubt it makes any real difference.
