Product Research

Features

2 Piece Screw-on Design: For easy and reliable crimp-less speaker cable termination.

24k Gold Contacts: For maximum signal transfer and corrosion resistance.

Special Teeth and Ring-lock: For an extremely strong grip that stays tight for optimum signal transfer.

Dimensions: With the insulator connected, the unit is 1.575" long. The banana plug itself is 0.675" long, and it is 0.15" wide at the tip and 0.2" wide at the leaf spring contact. The insulator measures 0.535" in diameter. Fits up to 12 guage speaker wire.

Installation: Unlike most connector systems, Quick Lock connectors require no tools. To connect to speaker cables:

  • Strip the cable jacket to expose 5/8" of copper stranding
  • Slip the Quick Lock mounting post over the exposed copper
  • Using your fingers, twist the copper strands to form a point
  • Place the connector over the copper point, turning it clockwise onto the threaded portion of the mounting post until secure

I selected these based on the advice from a Crutchfield expert.

A
I am setting up an outdoor installation, I wanted Banana connectors for ease of removing installing the amp, Monster has a good rep these look easy to use. They popped up as an associated product on Crutchfield"s site, it was like they knew just what I needed, this is one of the reasons I keep coming back to Crutchfield, they are really good at getting you to the product you really want. [ M  Aug 07, 2016 ]

I have been using these for YEARS! And they are awesome. No frayed connections. Just take your time with the initial setup and they will last a lifetime. I do not buy speakers without these. They make life so much easier when you have to move a speaker, etc. And the almost 100 % connectivity is a must for any audiophile!! [ Steve  Jul 14, 2016 ]
A
Easy to plug!!! [ Roberto  Jul 05, 2016 ]
A
Banana plugs are an easy way to connect your speaker cables to your speakers. A couple of minutes to attach the plugs to your wires will save time down the road if you need to disconnect the speakers for any reason (replacement of blown speaker or upgrade to better speakers). They also help ensure you get a SOLID connection EVERY TIME. [ Nathan  Jul 05, 2016 ]
A
Why spend time researching items when you have advise of people who know what they have, so far their advise has been great, thanks Abe. Abe's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=156 [ Sabino  Jul 03, 2016 ]

A
Tired of mashing wires into connectors. [ Joshua  Jun 02, 2016 ]
A
They look like a very simple install, working with a few different sizes of wire. Saves money over buying wires with connectors already attached, depending on what you want out of wiring. [ Brian  May 31, 2016 ]
A
I chose the Monster Self Crimping banana connectors for their superior quality and the fact that they can be reused. Crimp on connectors can only be used once and the twist on models become loose and fall off after awhile. I have used these terminators for years. [ LANCE  May 20, 2016 ]
A
Convenient method of connection. [ Mark  May 11, 2016 ]

So easy to attach, and Monster always has high quality products. [ CARMINE T  Apr 29, 2016 ]
A
Because the terminals on the back of my Yamaha receiver are close together and it is difficult to get the Monster Cable into the connection. The Banana Connectors are easier to use and connect. [ Dwayne  Apr 27, 2016 ]
A
Necessity. [ frederic  Apr 18, 2016 ]
A
Gotta have connectors and these looked as good as any, especially since I didn't want to spend a load on them. Nothing fancy but they do a great job! The new system wouldn't be complete without them. [ Michael  Apr 18, 2016 ]

The cheaper competitor has received bad reviews. Crutchfield beats Best Buy's price on these by quite a bit. The discount on these when buying select speaker wire helps as well. [ Derek  Mar 25, 2016 ]

The connectors are short and easy to attach in tight spaces. The connectors also can be reused. [ DONALD  Mar 21, 2016 ]

I love Monster products and hate dealing with bare wire terminals. My receiver may only have banana terminals for two speakers, but a pair of these makes two less speakers I have to hook up with bare wire, at least on one end anyways :-) [ David  Feb 11, 2016 ]

I own monster cable that needs new banana plugs [ charles  Jan 09, 2016 ]
A
Although you can find other brands with similar quality at a better price the main reason to select this one is the fact that the wider part of the cover is not metal making it impossible to short circuit positive and negative if by any chance they come in contact with each other while the receiver is on by accident. I also prefer the Closed Screw Type plug because it does not leave the bare wire exposed to the elements and the quality. [ Orlando  Jan 04, 2016 ]
A
Hopefully this provides for a positive way to connect my speakers [ Guy  Jan 04, 2016 ]

I like the banana plugs for ease of installation and better connection for speaker wires. I use monster cables and these connectors were a quick, easy way to install banana plugs on the wires. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for, these work great [ SCOTT  Dec 29, 2015 ]

Does it work with 16 gauge wire?

Thanks for your question. Yes they will. They will fit up to 12 gauge wire. Hope that helps.

Q
Can this product be used with standard 14 gauge speaker wire?
[ Gregg  Jan 26, 2014 ]
4 answers
A
It probably could. I used monster cable. You unscrew the tip, push the wire in from the bottom then unravel the copper strands. The strands are spread around the base, bent over. The tip is screwed back on. They work great. I've got 7 polk speakers hooked up this way.
[ Phoneman  Jan 27, 2014 ]
A
yes.
[ MICHAEL T  Jan 27, 2014 ]

Not sure about the 14 gauge wire fit, but these are great connectors and I highly recommend them.
