What other alternatives do I have for coaxial cable termination?

I have purchased the Belden 1505F for my subwoofer cable plus the Canare RCAP-C42 connector. I realized now that it requires a Canare crimp tool kit that is over $300.

So, my question is what other options do I have so that my subwoofer cable can have a solid and strong RCA termination? First, what other cheaper crimp tools or ways that I can still use my Canare RCAP-C42 connector? If not, what RCA connector can I use with this Belden 1505F coaxial cable? The Belden 1505F is very flexible and the wire inside is not stiff like regular coaxial TV cables.

Any crimp tool that has dies for http://canare.com/UploadedDocume...Die%20Spec.pdf the sizes listed for the TCD-35CA will work.

So the TCD-35CA die alone cost $136. That is a bit ridiculous.

Just terminate it with an F-connector, and then use a $1 F-to-RCA adapter...

I have tried that. The issue with the sub cable I have is that the actual wire is strand and not solid.

Ugh, sorry, missed that... Maybe a crimp on BNC connector (intended for that stranded Precision Video cable) that works with a normal crimper, then BNC-to-RCA?

I'd use a solder on RCA connector.
