1 PAIR OF High-Quality Gold Plated Speaker Banana Plugs, Open Screw Type

Banana plugs make speaker installation a breeze. They are designed for use with amplifiers or speakers that use traditional binding posts. Not only is it easier to make the connection on the back of your amp, it is safer, with no chance of stray wire strands creating a short across contacts.

These high quality plugs are the open screw type and can accept bare wire, spades, or other banana plugs. They are sized to fit speaker wire from 12 to 18 AWG. Each pair comes with one plug color coded red and the other coded black, for easy polarity identification.

The plug body is made of brass, which is then plated with gold to help prevent corrosion and ensure smooth connections.


  • Can accept bare wire, spades, or other banana plugs
  • Can accept 12 to 18 AWG speaker wires
  • Color coded black/red rings for maintaining proper polarity
  • Secure, positive contact with binding posts
  • Corrosion resistant, 24K gold plated brass plug
  • Each order includes ONE pair (2 plugs total)

The video below shows the differences between the various types of banana plugs and includes a demonstration of how to install each type.

Not good for 16 AWG wire

Pros: Install was easy after lots of trouble shooting.

Cons: Would not secure 16 gauge wire.
Red/Black washers leave too big of a gap.

The gap between the top of the screw and the plug was too big to hold onto 16 gauge wire. The only way I was able to use these was to remove the red and black indicators. Which of course means I had to mark up the plugs myself to keep track of +/-.

Ideal for Parallel Speaker connections

When connecting multiple speakers to the same binding posts on an amplifier (I had a passive subwoofer), I found these banana plugs to be more useful than the closed end ones. These put less stress on the end of the connection and keep the connectors straighter and less likely to short out when you need to connect one banana plug into the back of another. They also take up less room behind my amplifier, allowing me to gain a 1/2 inch or more of space. Doesn't sound like a lot, but it makes a difference in tight spots.

Just what I needed

Pros: Go on easily.

Cons: Screw-on end can work itself loose quickly.

I needed these because I have been doing a lot of switching of my solid-core cables into my Magnepan speakers. The tiny screws on the Maggies were driving me crazy - I just wanted banana plugs that I didn't have to solder. As the wire was solid-core, the other banana plugs would not work.
These are great, but because the wire is solid, there is nothing for the screw-on end to crunch down on. So I have to be careful - minimal twisting will result in them working their way loose.
