Questions and Answers
Soldering will probably cause issues with the internal screw threads engaging. Hope that helps!
Overall product is good
CONS: Quality of contacts is not consistent...requires modification
PROS: The price.
The videos (even though you really don't need the videos for these).
CONS: Really none to speak of assuming you know what you are ordering and why you are ordering them.
The thread in pins though, are a problem. Every time that I pull one of the plugs from the speakers or receiver, one or both pins is slightly loose. Finger tight doesn't stay tight, and there are no flat areas where you could use a small wrench.
This became a bigger issue the last time I set up the outdoor movie. When I was laying out the speaker wires, one of the pins unthreaded completely and dropped into the grass, never to be seen again. I was able to go back to my in house HT wiring and use one of those pins, but now I have one plug that is essentially useless.
I am considering using a dab of glue to hold the pins in place, but I don't want to cause any interference issues. The other possibility is to find a very small rubber o-ring to place at the top of the threads to create tension on the threads.
Overall, a good product, but the loose pins definitely take a couple points off the review score.
PROS: Straightforward design
No special tools needed (except...)
CONS: Thread in pin cannot be tightened
While you will hardly ever see the back of the speaker, back of the receiver, etc., it was important for everything to have a clean look.
These banana plugs are a snap to install on the wire and make connection to the binding posts a half-second install. For the low/moderate power of the system, I used these plugs with Monoprice 16awg speaker wire.
The clean look and function of these banana plugs compliment the Polk Audio speakers and Denon receiver very well. My mother-in-law was very impressed with how professional everything looked.
PROS: easy to assemble
easy to connect
very clean look
CONS: perhaps a little longer than necessary
PROS: Worked perfectly
PROS: Easy to install.
Work well with larger gauge wires.
PROS: Very well made. No surprises
PROS: Pretty easy to install, no stray strands hanging out.
CONS: They seem to be too long for their own wall plates
PROS: Great product. No wonder it gets bought off the shelf.
