No, the sizes at the top are wire stripping. They are not very good at that either :(

You can, they just don't do a very good job. They tend to mess up the terminals and it is hard to get the correct crimping force to make sure the connection is sound.

For speakers you probably will get away with it, but not if it is for a high current circuit.
