Overview

Our take on 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
  • 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

These make for a very clean easy hookup.

Mick from Rochester, NY on 12/25/2018

Well thought out design. Two screws grip the cable nice and secure. Crutchfield even provides the screw driver. Easier to connect than the more expensive brand I had previously used. Look no further.

Pros: Simple to connect. Fast and easy

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These plugs work great, are easy to get wire connected with screws to hold wire tight in unit, with cover going over plug from plug side to cover wire connection point.

Pros: Easy to hook up, tight fitting connection when plugged in.

Robert from Aston, PA on 6/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nicely made, the double set screws to clamp the wires in are very secure and the supplied screwdriver actualy has a good quantity tip to tighten them up. Most tools supplied with stuff you buy are barely usable. And as others have said the metal cover screws on from the plug end so no worries about forgetting to slide it on the wire before making the connection.

Cons:

a plug for the banana

Paul from Cresco, IA on 5/23/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is just a great, simple to use, reasonably priced product. I really like that the covers screw on from the plug end, ie you don't have to remember to slide them on the wire before attaching the wire to the plug. These are just a really nicely designed product, I will be ordering more.

Pros:

Cons: NONE!

Features

Crutchfield Banana Plugs: The Crutchfield banana plug connectors provide an easy and secure connection between your 16 or 14 gauge speaker wire and your loudspeakers, receiver, or amplifier. 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.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Great connection [ RAYMOND  Jan 16, 2019 ]
I have used these connectors before and they have performed very well. Makes speaker installation easy. [ Jeffrey  Jan 16, 2019 ]
I already purchased some which I found to be well made [ chris  Jan 11, 2019 ]
To make installation easier [ Tracy  Jan 08, 2019 ]
Excellent customer service from Bo! [ STEPHEN  Jan 05, 2019 ]
easy connect / disconnect...no need to mess around when you can't see your connectors. They are Crutchfield so I assume they are easy and reliable? [ Matthew  Dec 29, 2018 ]
Purchased these but didn't get enough, they are a tight fit, but very secure and easy plug-and-play installation. [ Daniel  Dec 18, 2018 ]
to connect better w/new pair of speakers [ Senan  Dec 14, 2018 ]
Recommended by Live Chat, Taylor [ STEVEN  Nov 17, 2018 ]
Price very affordable [ William  Oct 29, 2018 ]
They make connecting to the back of my receiver much easier and cleaner. [ L  Oct 24, 2018 ]
With new speakers, I needed new banana plugs. Crutchfield always has good quality, especially if their name's on it. [ Daniel  Oct 06, 2018 ]
So I can make custom length cables and have clean terminations on the end. Hopefully they will work with the receiver and speaker combo I bought other wise I will return. [ Emilio  Sep 27, 2018 ]
Good Reviews, good value [ P  Aug 29, 2018 ]
Crutchfield advisor told me about it [ Joe Mc  Aug 23, 2018 ]
I have confidence in the brand. I needed connectors and I could save myself an extra trip by picking up everything here. [ rebecca  Aug 08, 2018 ]
Always seems easier with banana plugs and more secure than trying to feed the speaker wire thru the holes and tightening them down. [ Stephen  Aug 08, 2018 ]
Reliable, used before and I like the price point [ Douglas  Aug 07, 2018 ]
Having wired multiple receivers multiple times, I figured this would be immensely more convenient when addressing the speaker side of things. It'll also make chasing down any audio gremlins much less of a shot in the dark; if you know you have a solid connection to the plug and the plug is firmly in, then you should have sound. [ James  Aug 06, 2018 ]
I chose the Crutchfield Banana Plugs to ensure the most positive connection I could get from my receiver to my speakers. [ JD  Jul 30, 2018 ]
Great quality plugs that I have used on all my speaker wire [ Eric  Jul 21, 2018 ]
Crutchfield's reliability, and customer's trust in Crutchfield as a company. [ Roger  Jul 08, 2018 ]
Suggested when purchasing another product [ Paul  Jun 23, 2018 ]
Cheap [ Roman  Jun 03, 2018 ]
need to add another pair of speakers to my setup [ GENE A  May 31, 2018 ]
the service person said this would fill the need I had, we'll see how that work's out? [ Richard  May 13, 2018 ]
Because it was branded with Crutchfield, I knew that it would be good quality and not overpriced. [ Robert  Apr 26, 2018 ]
Was A Couple set short [ TIM  Apr 24, 2018 ]
They seem like an elegant solution [ Nick  Apr 13, 2018 ]
quality and value [ Douglas  Apr 12, 2018 ]
They are gold plated banana plugs. Why spend more if it doesnt improve the sound? [ ERIC  Apr 05, 2018 ]
I am a fan of lower-cost house brands for everything I buy; so, I drive a Dodge truck, not a Toyota. Crutchfield has done us all a favor by manufacturing banana plugs under their own name and making them available for a reasonable price. Diagnosed a bad speaker wire: the set-screw design make these plugs re-useable. [ Jeff  Apr 01, 2018 ]
I am tired of trying to get my head and hands into a shelf area to insert wires. [ Robert  Mar 12, 2018 ]
Good quality, good price [ John  Mar 11, 2018 ]
To try them out. [ alphonse  Feb 06, 2018 ]
Easier to make connections. [ Matt  Feb 03, 2018 ]
