Hey guys...How do you solder the L/R/Ground onto a jack such as this one?

Not a great pic, but it looks like you can wrap the wire around the posts in the middle and solder. Worst case you don't "need" any attachment to solder. You can lay the wire flat against the metal and solder them together. It just won't be as strong unless you have the crimp or something holding the wires really well...

As for poles, it should be ground on the outside, right on the thicker center pole and left on the thinner center pole if it is how it looks.

This page has the same question asked and basically answered. 

 

Either way, it's a better thread to direct your questions since this one is for pictures.

Sorry, It wasn't meant to sound critical or anything, just wanted to help. 

 

Sometimes I forget that the internet doesn't attach voice inflections to the words. Everything just comes out cold and harsh.

Haha, I know. I just didn't know how to reply, so apologizing randomly always seems to work. Sorry for the misunderstanding! (See?) Lol :p

The dhc plug has a big opening in the back I made an 8 wire cable with one before

Thanks, will look in to that, I've used the neutrik plug but drill out a bigger opening. Works just fine but wanted a already plug that didn't need work on.

Close, it's actually an Acrolink connector from Lunashops, but it is also Rhodium plated like the one you linked. Normally if I need more room for more wires, or thicker wires, I just drill the barrel of whatever connector I'm using out a little more.
