    Dual High-Quality Gold Plated Speaker Banana Plugs, Red

    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
    • Red plastic binding yoke

    Doesn't fit the Denon receivers I own
    The spacing of the plugs don't fit my Denon AVR-2113ci or AVR-3300 receivers. It does fit my Klipsch and M&K speakers, though. Even if the spacing did fit my Denon receivers, the side-fed wires would make the back of the receiver too crowded. After trying this and the other kind of plug where the wires go straight in the end of the plug rather than the side, the kind where the wires go straight in the end of the plug are harder to assemble but make a cleaner setup on the back of a receiver.

    Technical Use
    There are several on the market similar to these used mostly for automotive and home systems. In my case, I needed connectors that were not made as flimsy as most, considering the quality of metal used, density and temp resistance of the plastic, the gauge of wiring that could be used, and how tight the wires are held. I always trim to the least wire exposure and solder tinned before using. I use these because they seem to handle high current better than the more available cheapies, and these spreaders don’t fold under pressure causing a loose fit. My use is with dummy loads; a set and combination of 8 ohm high wattage resistors in a configuration that allows me to test amplifiers using 2, 4, and 8 ohm loads from a wattage selection of 300 to nearly 2000 watts RMS per channel. Even with a 300 Watt 8 ohm load, the resistors can get very hot which mean the audio current through these connectors is sustaining without metal weakening or getting hot. But when I step up to the 2400 watt RMS PA amps, the “current pass through” is easily sustained. I’ve burned some of the cheaper ones. The biggest plus of all is the price, beating every place I’ve shopped and that was many. I’m a retired Audio Tech and still at it. I’ve learned over the years; only settle for the best if you can get it, and if you can’t, make it. I’ll keep using and recommending these bananas until someone comes up with better ones, proves that they are, and maintains the price.

    Best Deal EVER
    The best choice for me. My local store is ten times the price and these are much nicer. Thanks for the quick delivery too. Getting so used to waiting months that this was a very pleasant surprise.

    Best banana jacks so far, easy to use and stack
    I've tried many styles of Banana Jacks some costing $10 each, these are the best ones out there, period. They handle 12 gauge wire with ease and no tools are required (small screw drivers are needed on most other styles).
    I usually buy a dozen at a time of Red and Black.
    The only draw back to these is their size - if space is tight they might be too large if equipment is in a tight case.

    Perfect to use with my Onkyo receiver! I'm new to home theater systems, so after a little bit of experimenting I figured out the right way to connect the plugs to the speaker wire, and now they work perfectly.

    These banana plugs are excellent!!!! I recommend them to anyone with 5 way binding post. The quality is on par with banana plugs that the high end audio stores sale for but for less.

    does not fit either of the Yamaha receivers I own
    this standardized width between banana jacks is not subscribed to by Yamaha, or possibly any other brand who designs their equipment with speaker wire posts vertically opposed instead of horizontally.

    tldr if you own a Yamaha receiver, buy individual bananas instead of these dualies or else you'll have to cut them apart with your dykes which is ugly.

    PROS: price

    CONS: none, really... i could gripe about the lax tolerance in the threads but they tighten perfectly fine

    Just what was needed !
    The plugs are of machined metal and gold plated. Wires are easy to insert and lock in place, they have a great fit and finish. Inserting them into my new Marantz AVR was a perfect fit ! Could not be happier......

    I bought extra for when the time comes for the full NINE channel theater hook up !
