1 PAIR OF High-Quality Gold Plated Speaker Banana Plugs, Closed 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 closed screw type and can accept bare wire or spades. 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 or spades
  • 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 Bad Bananas

Pros: Easy to grip. Heavy. Screws tight. Usable for thick speaker wire if trimmed.

Cons: Connector easily looses its girth and plug has potential to become so loose it falls out. Not enough contact surface area.
If using Monoprice speaker wire and these banana plugs, the combination makes for a stiff connection.

Not bad for banana plugs. I'm using these with Monoprice 12 AWG wire stripped and widelled edges so the tapered wire fits up into the gold lower section for a tighter fit. This does make a stiff end. So I use them only on my large floor standing speakers that have the jacks on the bottom. Reason being- if the jacks are higher, the speaker wire has to bend upward and inward into the connectors and since they are stiff, you'll need ample space behind the speaker. Mine are backed near a window and the speaker wire/ banana plugs pushes my drapes up against the window. Which looks stupid from the outside. The remedy was using different style banana plugs.
Also worth mentioning, the tips easily flatten therefor loosing connection, sound. Not good. So give them a good whack on the head to puff them up!

Pros: Works Perfect and the price is just right.

I needed a few more sets of speaker plugs and the ones that were here locally were like $12 for a set, so I looked at monoprice and got 4 sets for half the price and way better quality. You won't go wrong with these.
