Designed for Monster XP Cable and other 14- and 16-gauge speaker wires.

Designed for Monster XP Cable and other 14- and 16-gauge speaker wires.

Details:
  • nine beryllium-copper leaf springs for increased contact pressure
  • 24k hard-gold contact for maximum signal transfer
  • easy crimp-on design (crimping tool not included)
  • each pair includes one red and one black insulator

They worked okay but there was some struggle to get it all snug and proper. Next time I would spend a few dollars more and get the screw on clips rather than the crimp on ones.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed to change the ends of my low end Monster speaker wire. This was the same type of jacket on my current. I misread and thought it would be enough for 1 speaker wire (2 on each end). Remember it only for one side.

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Extremely over priced for what you get.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros: Good quality for the price

Cons: Can only be crimped once...

Written by: Tracy from Sandston, VA. on 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 option. "Thanks Crutchfield."

1 question already asked

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  Mar 11, 2014 ]  Staff
