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
  • 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:

  • 2 Banana plugs

Installation was easy enough (needs a small "eyeglass" flat head screw driver - secure both screws). Makes a great connection.

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.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

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 ]
