    1 PAIR OF High-Quality Gold Plated Speaker Pin Plugs, Closed Screw Type

    Pin plugs make speaker installation a breeze. They are designed for use with amplifiers or speakers fitted with either traditional binding posts or spring clip connectors. 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 and spades
    • Can accept 12 to 18 AWG speaker wires
    • Grooved pins prevent slippage
    • 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 following video shows the differences between the various types of banana plugs and includes a demonstration of how to install each type.

    Not a universal fit ... unstable and causes shorts.

    Pros: *They're pretty enough
    *Cheap enough so not worth the RMA

    Cons: *Not universal/doesn't go into my Klipsch speaker clips well enough
    *Couple the above with the conducting shells and you are guaranteed that at some point the speakers will short given minor movement
    **Shouldn't have to wrap them in electrical wire to have to use them!

    These connectors don't really fit my Klipsch home theater speakers. Even if I cut most of the tip off like one of the other reviewers had mentioned, the connectors still wiggle around and can hit eachother if the speaker moves (earthquakes, cat havoc, etc).

    Unfortunate Design

    As with PID 5977, these plugs can easily short the signal by touching together, which is quite likely with these kinds of connectors if there is tension on the cable.

    As expected

    Pros: Easy to follow shipment, product is as described on web site.

    Cons: No negative

    My home theatre Receiver is equipped with spring terminals which make it impossible to use banana plugs. I found the pin plugs at Monoprice. The new pins are now connected to the receiver and further to the sound speaker cable bana plug.. This works perfect. The sound is perfect and it looks fine.

    Good, could be better

    Pros: Good contstruction. Easy to use. Work fine

    Cons: Not insulated!!!!

    I hate pin plugs slightly less than bare wire. These guys work fine, can be trimmed or bent to fit. I just wish my 650s had binding posts (sorry that's a different review). But, they aint insulated. By the time I got them fitted, and wrapped them in electrical tape, the back of the speaker looked like a pig's breakfast.

    Bare Wire is Better

    Pros: Clean look.

    Cons: Static connection, fades in and out, or no sound at all.

    I was very excited to try these speaker pins because I have had such success with banana plugs. The thought of not having to use bare wire for the surround rear connections was appealing. Regardless of how many times and different ways I wired the 16 gauge speaker wire to these speaker pins, I could not get them to work in the spring type connection on the back of my AVR. Sometimes the signal would be full of static, other times it would fade in and out, and most of the time there was no sound at all. I even had someone else try wiring the speaker wire to the pins, but they received the same results. I ended up going back to bare wire for the surround rear speakers connection.

    Thank you for your review on PID 5975. Truly sorry to hear about the audio issues experienced when using these pin plugs. I see you ordered two pairs of these plugs. Just to verify, did this occur with both pairs received? Also, were the plugs touching each other at all when in use? Please let me know so we can look into this matter further. Thank you!

    It did occur with both pairs that I ordered. I also verified that the wire, AVR connection points, speaker connection points, and speakers were all functional. At no time were any of the pins touching each other. I even jacketed them as a precaution but still received the same results as when using them without jackets.

    I see - thank you for your reply! If I may ask, do any of the tips of the plugs appear to be damaged or loose? Are all of the plugs screwed tightly and secure in the clips? Can we test the plugs with other speakers if at all possible just to see if the problem persists?

    If still experiencing issues, it is possible that you may have received defective plugs. We can setup an RMA for replacements just to see if new plugs will work out any better. It would be of no additional cost to you to obtain replacements.

    All plugs are screwed tightly and secured in the clips. None of the tips appear damaged or loose. I tested the plugs with four different speakers and the problem persists. At this point I have wired the speakers using bare wires and have no desire to redo the system again with replacement plugs. I would appreciate if we can arrange for an RMA and I can return the plugs to you for additional inspection if you wish.

    Thank you Gabby for being thorough in determining the cause of the issue. I will keep an eye out for the email from the returns department. Have a great day.
