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

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 ]
