The final crimp dimension will depend on what type of crimp tool you will be using. Fancy tools are NOT required. We used a multipurpose crimper/stripper. These tools do vary in features from MFG to MFG. The feature you will be looking for will something like this tool picture. The goal is to achieve a half moon shape on one side of the crimped sleeve. This will allow you to maintain maximum contact area with the speaker connector. The other side of the crimp is not important as this will be contacted by the set screws in the speaker.

When using the crimp sleeve we recommend stripping off App. 1" of speaker wire insulation. Perform a test fit to make sure you have enough conductor present to fill the speaker connector and then crimp on the copper crimp sleeve. Finally, trim only enough conductor so that the crimp sleeve fits into the connector all the way. This way you have maximum contact area in the connector even if the crimp sleeve is a little short. The crimp sleeve can also be cut after crimping if they are too long.
