OK, this has been bugging me for thirty yeas… yes thirty years… (BTW, my analyst gave me money back when I brought this one up).
When you have a connection that has large surface area… such as a spade or banana speaker terminal… where/how does the current flow? Over the entire contact area? Over the microscopic path of least resistance? By frequency?
Should we seek to minimize the connection area? Big fat spades don’t matter? World Trade Federation?
