Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Another reviewer indicated that the colors are odd for speaker connectors, which is true, so be aware of that. The female part isn't very deep, so stacking them with other bananas might allow the other bananas to fall out. The one actual problem I had was that the whole metal part rotated inside the plastic, so when I tried to take it apart the wires wouldn't come out, since they were jammed against the plastic. Maybe I over-tightened the screws. They are of course not overly high-quality, but they do work, and I prefer connectors with less metal to muddy the sound.

Cons:

Not for average home use

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is not what you are looking for to install your speakers, the black plug has two negative speaker wires feeding it, right speaker negative and left speaker negative. Red plug is the same except + right and left. What you need is a dual plug that is red/black on same plug. A negagative and + on the same dual plug just like the end of your speaker wire. Sending them back.

Pros:

Cons: Does not work for home speaker installs

2 questions already asked

The wires are held in by screws, use a jewel's screwdriver to loosen the screw, than insert the wire through the side hole and tighten the screw to clamp the wire in place. [ PAUL  Jun 06, 2018 ]
In order to secure the wire there are screws inside the back of the plug. Once you thread thr wire through the holes on the side of the plug, use a straight screwdriver to tighten the screw which holds the wire in place. You will probably have to loosen this screw to thread the wire through the hole on the side of the plug. These plugs work well on the speaker side of the wire. They may not work on your receiver. You may have to use single plugs for that. The double plug is great for phasing your speakers. The have a bump on the side which you can use to put the plug in correctly. [ Charles  Jun 05, 2018 ]
The plug contains two screws for the positive and negative wires. The plugs worked very well for my application. [ Michael  Jun 04, 2018 ]
A small electronic-style flathead screwdriver was used to secure the wire through the rear of the banana connector (look in the hole of the fitting), the screw fits in the rear of the plug (though it can't be seen in the pics). [ Jean  Jun 04, 2018 ]
There are screws, you can see them on the top of the fitting. One on each plug. [ Luther Ray  Jun 04, 2018 ]
12 gauge wire barely fits in this plug. The only way I could make it fit was to trim a few strands away from the wire. Lesser gauge fit easily. [ Charles  Jun 05, 2018 ]
Fits a14 fine . I don't know if it will accept a 12 gauge but i think it will. [ Eugene  Dec 10, 2016 ]
