These are a simple way to get a "nice-tight" connection. Properly crimp them and you're all set ! Plug in, unplug easy. No fuss.
Good quality for the price
Can only be crimped once...

Monster crimp-on mini bananas

Written By Tracy, Sandston, VA. on Monday, August 23, 2010
Very nice crimp connector. It just feels like a heavier, better quality than a standard
connector you might find at a hardware store. They crimp well and I always apply just a bit of
solder to make sure I have a strong connection and then cover it with heat shrink tubing, it
works great. Don't "cheap out." If you've put a few of your hard earned dollars into a system,
then take it the rest of the way, your system is only as strong as its weakest link. Now go
ahead, "Add To Cart" and don't forget to thank Crutchfield for giving you more than one
"Thanks Crutchfield."

1 question already asked

do you have a female version of this plug? [ dave  Mar 09, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: We do not have a female version of the banana connectors. These allow you to connect your speaker wire to one end and then make the connection to your amplifier or speaker. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Mar 11, 2014 ]
