Questions and Answers
That tubing is there to act as a strain relief if needed. Sometimes when using thinner gauge wires it's helpful to have some additional material. Thank you for asking.
They are well made however.
I bought 7 pairs to make things easier for me when connecting my speaker cables to my warranty replacement Yamaha Aventage RX-A770. My older receiver was a Yamaha Aventage RX-A740, the old model kept having hand shacking issues with my LG OLED E6 under 1080P which was strange. To try to make the story short, I had to take it in for service 6 times so since I was getting tired of constantly unscrewing the rear terminals on the receiver I bought these plugs and boy did it help me a lot! It was a breeze to reconnect my Klipsch Reference premier speakers to the replacement receiver.
I would recommend using 12 gauge wires as the 10 gauge wires I have seem to be a bit on the thick side but I still got the copper wire in there though. The two screws worked great to secure the wire in place. The terminals went in my Yamaha Aventage RX-A770 just fine with no issues at all.
However I did a test fit on my Klipsch Reference premier speakers and sure enough like another Gentle man said here, they didn't exactly fit. It left about. Good 1/4 inch of the terminal exposed behind the speaker but I've been using bare wire connected behind them so that's not a big deal.
If you need to make connections easier and more clean for the back of your receiver, these are the go to terminal plugs you need!
I highly recommend them for a cleaner install.
