Saddlebag audio disconnects ??

Okay, gettin ready to do audio install and planning 1 amp and speakers in the bags. I will use and Anderson type connector for the power, but what are you guys using for for line level (RCA) and speaker level disconnects. It was suggested on another forum to use spring type connectors like those found on home audio recievers and speakers for speaker level, IMO this leaves room for problems having bare wires exposed if bags are off.

I know you guys got something slick that I'm missing, let me know !

Peace

I don't have my amp in the bags, just the speakers. You can use the same kind of connector as used on a battery tender, that way nothing is exposed, it's quick, and you never screw up the polarity.

I actually bought some of those at a flea market, but I'm sure they're available at your local Napa auto parts

Anderson connectors

So...I guess that I will be using these for both power and speaker connections, what are you guys using for your line level (RCA) cable disconnect ? I suppose that I could use female x female RCA connectors to connect cables on bike to cables in bags. Any thoughts ?
