Monster Cable twist-on pins used with heavy cables

Written By RB, Ashburn, VA on Saturday, November 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These were the perfect size for my old speakers. Well made. Twist connectors separate easily if you use heavy speaker cables, but I do not have an alternative to fit my gear.
Pros:
High quality, fit my vintage JBL speaker spring posts.
Cons:
AudioQuest X2 cable is heavy enough to pull out of these cable pins with a slight extra pull.

Perfect for Spring Loaded Clamps

Written By GarageRat, Chicago IL on Friday, July 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have two vintage receivers that take this type or bare wire. Works great with the 12 Gauge wire. Easy in and out. They loose a star due to the cheap rubber outside which disintegrates over time. I have some Silverbacks with fantastic build and non conductive shell but the flex wire breaks to easily. Wish they could combine them and you would make a fortune. Now Monster makes smaller ones for the people here who complain it won't hold their wire, these are designed for larger wire as described (12 gauge).
Pros:
Easy to slide in and out of spring load connections, No crimping needed. Clean look.
Cons:
Cheap Rubber polarity shells.

Works great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These were easy to use and I only had one come apart but once I twisted it more firmly, it wasn't a problem.
Pros:
Easy to use
Cons:
These should come in the quicklock style.

Don't bother

I was unable to get these pins to twist onto Monster XP cable sufficiently to hold. Ended up not using them.
Cons:
Don't work as advertised with Monster Cable.

Monster Cable Twist-on Angled Gold Pins

Written By chris, Fishers, IN on Tuesday, July 05, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Not a fan, but the only reason I bought these was because someone told me I should buy a Monster speaker selector to protect my receiver. Monster being Monster, they make things that require you to buy other Monster things for the original thing to work. That being said, the banana clips were required to connect the speaker wire to the speaker selector. They were a pain to hook up, then I discovered that the sound channels weren't properly distributed throughout the speakers (i.e. center channel sound was sent through all the speakers, not solely the center channel). So I disconnected the entire speaker selector and ran the speaker wire straight into the receiver. So if anyone wants to buy a Monster 6 speaker selector box, I have one for sale that is pretty much brand new.

These connectors were great. Tired of twisting wires and wondering if you have a connection then use these.

Good for limited use

Written By Lynn, Dallas, TX on Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These connectors, because of the slip-on insulators, are good for connecting speaker wire into the close amplifier speaker outlets. The "twist-on" did bite into my 14 gauge speaker wire (be sure to twist the wire and the pin counter-clockwise) and does get a good electrical connection. My complaint is that the connector holds to only about 1 pound of pull. In fitting into tight spaces, it would be easy to pull one loose. I'd prefer an insulated connector with a more positive connection to the wire.

Don't waste your money

Written By Daniel, Schaumburg, IL on Monday, April 13, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are junk. I was using 12 gauge speaker wire. The wire just does not stay tight in these connectors. They also are a pain to screw down on the speaker posts.

I took them off my wires and will just thread the wire in the posts and screw the posts down.

Works as Advertised

Written By Anonymous, Richmond, VA on Monday, October 27, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just strip the tips of the speaker cable, and then twist these on. You can
remove if you need to shorten the cable run in the future. Fits onto Original
Monster Cable.
