Crutchfield Banana Connectors
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
not surprising - simple but effective 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.

not surprising - simple but effective connectors
inexpensive and good quality
These make for a very clean easy hookup.
Pros: Clean repeatable hookup.
Cons: They are a little long if you need to push the speaker up against the wall.
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
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.
Easy to use
Installation was easy enough (needs a small "eyeglass" flat head screw driver - secure both screws). Makes a great connection.
Pros: Easy installation
Great suggestion, need to get a few more!!! thanks!
Easy to wire, makes installation faster. Great product.
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.
never used these before and i like them. provide a solid and protected connection and are easy to use. bill
Pros: ease of use, quality and reasonably priced.
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.
not enough room for my setup to use them and did not fit the speaker very well.
Geat quality works as described...
Can't go wrong, inexpensive and works great!

Easy to use and work perfectly.

Works great and easy to stall
Pros: Two screws make then easy to install and very secure.
Quality banana plugs. Work as intended making speaker wire connections easier.
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.
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.

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 ]

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 ]

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 ]
