Overview

Our take on the Crutchfield Banana Plugs

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

What's in the Box:

  • 20 Banana plugs
  • Flat-blade screwdriver

Makes speaker hook up a dream. Will never use anything else.

Easy to connect to wire. Feels like solid construction and with 2 screws to hold wire in place should hold up well.

Took me a minute to figure out how to use but once I did, these are the best around. Wires won't pull out. Jus need small screw driver, like for eyeglasses to tighten down inside...

good connection

Robert from Sioux Falls, SD on 2/25/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Each of these banana plugs has two set screws - one on each side of the plug. You can't see this in the photos because they compress the wire in opposite directions. I stripped my wires so that the deeper set screws contacted the copper wire and the more shallow set screws compressed the insulation. This ensured good connections and firmly attached plugs. The set screws are small, but the 20-pack comes with an appropriately sized flathead screwdriver. I liked these plugs better than another brand with the same design but even smaller set screws and better than an alternate design that requires fanning out the copper wire and bending over a post instead of using set screws.

Pros: good connection

Cons: small set screws (but 20-pack comes with screwdriver)

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.

Ease of use. [ Keith  May 10, 2018 ]
Makes installation easier [ Thomas  Apr 19, 2018 ]
Once I figured out how these work, found that they were more secure than other BPs with the screw down contact to hold the wire. Home Depot has a good plug, but they were $5 a pair. Crutchfield banana plugs were best quality and lower cost. - Thanks! [ REGINALD  Apr 07, 2018 ]
Great value! [ Jonathan  Apr 06, 2018 ]
this is going to work best with the amp that is going to be installed in my parents shed. banana plugs just give you a more clean look and solid connection. [ Ben  Feb 28, 2018 ]
The cost for the quantity [ Bill  Feb 05, 2018 ]
could have gotten 2 screw banana plugs elsewhere bay I'm trusting Crutchfield doesn't put their name on junk [ Brian  Feb 01, 2018 ]
