About the Crutchfield Banana Connectors

We like banana connectors — especially for the space-challenged rear panels of A/V receivers. These connectors use a set-screw design that provides reliably easy and secure speaker wire termination. If your receiver, amplifier, or speakers have banana-compatible binding posts, these connectors are a low-cost way to plug in.

Product highlights:

  • provides an easy and secure connection between your 16- or 14-gauge speaker wire and your banana-compatible speakers, receiver, or amplifier
  • a set-screw secures your speaker wire to the banana connector (screwdriver included)
  • 24k gold-plated contacts resist corrosion
  • red and black Crutchfield logos to identify positive and negative
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee
  • MFR # B10PK

They work as advertised.

Crutchfield customer from Bountiful, UT on 6/13/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

They work as advertised and are easy to use. They have two screws, one towards the top and one at the bottom of where the striped wire is inserted. These hold the wire well and make a solid connection. My only complaint is that the covers always loosen almost with very little contact. A screw to hold these firm would be nice. I have used these on four sets of speakers and do like them.

Pros: They work

Cons: Covers come loose

Crutchfield customer from Madisonville, TX on 2/10/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Ordered these because I have a habit of swapping stuff out. Banana plugs just make it so much easier. The actual plug is high quality and I don't expect the wire to ever pop out. They snuggly fit in each terminal. Only issue I have is the cover just feels cheap even though they look nice. It doesn't affect how they work so I still give them 5 stars.

Pros: Good looks Secure connections

Cons:

GOOD BANANA PLUGS BUT NO INSTRUCTIONS

William from Fort Wayne, IN on 12/17/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The product is fine, and not difficult to use once you figure it out. But that is the problem! No instructions are included. I looked for some on YouTube and the instructions given weren't compatible with these banana plugs so I had to call Crutchfield for instructions. In addition, they packed a very small plastic bag in a large box filled with styrofoam peanuts. I had to empty the whole box of peanuts looking for instructions, which were not even in there. I took off a star because of the hassle caused by no instructions.

These banana plugs are easy and straightforward to install and use. These make connecting speaker wires to a receiver a breeze. Having two set screws make for a very strong connection.

The plugs themselves worked just fine, although the packaging could have been thought through a little more thoroughly. They wasted a box and a bunch of peanuts to ship the teeny bag the plugs came in when a lined envelope would have sufficed.

Excellent kit! Plugs are well engineered and manufactured. Every one that I have used contained all of the needed pieces and they all fit together as designed. Comes with a nice screwdriver and they work as designed. Buy extras to keep on hand for the inevitable speaker additions.

These are a no-go

Flaco from Austin, TX on 9/27/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've never used banana plugs before, but it seems to me that they should plug in all the way. They lack ~1/4" of bottoming out in the socket in speakers or the amplifier, etc. I bought these for use with outdoor speakers, so this will not work at all for water-tightness. So for now I've just hooked the speaks up bare-wire, which doesn't work either. We've had 12-1/3 inches of rain this month in central Texas!. I only just got the speaks (Voyager 50) fully installed yesterday during a break in the rain, but I'll be looking for a watertight solution, as the speaker wire will become contaminated as it gets wet. These plugs work OK for indoor applications.

Pros: Provide a solid connection to the wire.

Cons: Tedious to install. Not weather-tight.

Crutchfield response on 10/2/2018
: Thanks for the review. We ran this by our Tech Support specialist Jason, and he said this: "It is not uncommon for banana connectors to stick out a bit. While the diameter is close to standard, the depth varies quite a bit from speaker to speaker, receiver to receiver, etc. For an outdoor speaker, there really isn't a truly waterproof connection method, anything is going to allow some water in/on the connector. That's why you want to make sure to put a 'drip loop' on your wire, that allows the water to drop off before it gets to the actual speaker and connectors. Basically just make sure you have some slack speaker wire that dips down below the level of the connectors when they're mounted. That way, any water that runs down the speaker wire will not pool on the connections but will instead be shed harmlessly off the insulation. I've drawn a simple diagram of what I mean and attached it to this email, please forgive my absolute lack of artistic ability. The important thing is that the loop in the wire is below the level of the connectors on the speaker."

Quick and easy to setup and use. Color coding of each plug red and black made final install into both the speakers and receiver a breeze. My new floor standing speakers sound great using these plugs. Only issue was that the plugs were a tight fit when installing, but the connections was made in the end.

Pros: Color coding of each plug makes it easy to keep track of what wires go where

Cons: A little snug when inserting plugs into speakers

Set-screws secure your speaker wire to the banana plug connector (strip your speaker wire 0.5"). Each Crutchfield banana plug connector features a gold-plated single-banana jack which easily plugs into the binding post terminals of your loudspeakers, receiver, or amplifier. The barrel of each connector has a red or black "Crutchfield" logo to identify positive and negative.

  • Connector Diameter: 0.215"
  • Barrel Diameter: 0.425"
  • Overall Length: 1.805"
Note: Available in a 2, 10, or 20 pack.

Installation Instructions: Twist the banana plug connector clockwise to loosen the connector from the barrel. Slide the connector down through the barrel until it comes out and then loosen the set-screw. Strip your 16 or 14 gauge speaker back 0.5" and insert it up through the hollow end of the banana connector. Tighten the set-screw onto the inserted speaker wire and slide the banana connector back through barrel. Twist the banana connector counter-clockwise to tighten the assembly and plug the banana connector into the binding-post terminal of your speakers, receiver, or amplifier.
