Anyone know were i could i find a wire connector similar to the one they used for the tower lights to unplug when you fold down the tower?

I would prefer the same so i can quick disconnect my speakers... let me know!

Deutsch connectors will work:

My tower came with Weather Pack Connectors installed:

I prefer the Deutsch connectors. The crimper for the solid barrel pins are expensive. I bought a crimper and resold it on Ebay when I had to redo some connections on my Road King. They make pins that have a fold over crimp that use a less expensive and more available crimpers.

Yes, 12ga will be a tight fit in the pins, but I got 12ga to work when I did mine. You don't need the crimp tool if you carefully crimp them with a needle nose pliers. I soldered mine after the makeshift crimping. And make sure you get the pins in the right spot the first itme or you'll need the removal tool! (Don't ask how I know)
