    Dual High-Quality Gold Plated Speaker Banana Plugs, Black

    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.

    This high-quality dual plug has two banana plugs spaced 3/4" center-to-center with a red plastic yoke, the typical distance between binding posts on speakers. The 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.

    Features:

    • 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
    • Black plastic binding yoke

    Pros: Exactly what I wanted to clean up the back of my Amp too speaker connections at an amazing price!

    Cons: None

    These were perfect for cleaning up the back of my Amp and I like to mess around back there all the time so it will be easy to remove and reinstall vs unscrewing the bare wires. Make sure you check that they fit by measuring but these fit my Denon AVR perfect.

    Review of 2945 Monoprice Dual Banana Plug

    • Manny,
    •  Coconut Creek, Fl

    Pros: Inexpensive, Stackable

    Cons: Less than optimum electrical connection

    These are good for 16 guage or thicker wire, you may have to double 18 guage wire in the hole for the screws to hold it firmly. The reason I rated these a 5 is because the plug springs are not solidly connected to the posts that they mount on. They twirl in the plug brass barrels where the electical current is transferred. When you plug them in the tension increases but they will still twirl. You can prove this by removing either screw and plugging it's hole onto the spring. Honestly, the connection is good enough for most people but if you want the best connection and are somewhat skilled with a 140 watt soldering gun, you can improve these plugs. Remove both red and black screws to minimize the amount of metal to heat. Put the dual plastic barrels into a cushioned vise with the tips pointing up around 45 degrees. The idea is to get a bead of solder to gravity flow between the spring tips where they meet the brass barrels. Clean the tip of a 140 watt soldering gun first. Use low heat rosin or silver solder. Put the gun tip under the area where the springs meet the barrels. The metal barrel will get hot enough to soften the plastic barrelthe 45 degree angle will prevent it from sliding out of the plastic. Do one at a time letting the plastic cool in between soldering. When you're done the spring tips won't twirl anymore and you should have the same 3/4 inch spacing that you started with. Reinstall the screws and you're done.

    Pros: solid construction, correctly manufactured

    Cons: n/a

    I purchased these parts based on a YouTube review. Thankfully, the information was direct and easy to follow I used these connection on my speakers with no conflicts. I highly recommend these plugs.

    Get the job done, but not the right size

    Pros: Do what banana plugs should do, keep you from messing with those screw down posts on the amp. Easy to connect wire to plugs.

    Cons: Probably aren't the right spacing for your receiver. Little bulky. Limited colors available.

    You buy banana plugs so that you don't have to try to thread speaker wire into the binding posts on the back of your receiver, which is generally annoying, and usually really inconvenient to get to. This way you can attach your speaker wire to the banana plug and then have a convenient plug and play connection at the back of your amp. They also make doubling up speakers easy, but that's a rare use-case. These plugs come in pairs, the theory being that you can connect the positive and negative speaker terminal at once. Unfortunately, if the spacing of your binding posts on your amp/receiver isn't the same as the spacing of the plug then that doesn't work. I have two Denon/Marantz receivers and the spacing was wrong for both of those. In that case, you can cut the plastic casing and usem the separately and still get most of the advantage of the plugs.

    The other solution, if the spacing between the positive to positive and negative to negative binding posts matches (as it did on my receivers) then you can use them in pairs with pairs of speakers. Get a red banana plug and a black banana plug. Connect both of the positive speaker wires to the two connectors of the red one, and the two negative speaker lines to the two connectors of the black one. Make sure you are consistent with L and R mapping to one side or the other of the banana plug. Then, you plug the banana plugs into the receiver across the two negative posts and the two positive posts. It's a little "creative" re-assignment of what wire goes where, but everything gets to the right place and you don't have to cut too many plugs apart since speakers come in pairs most of the time.
