Overview

Our take on the Crutchfield Banana Connectors

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

Works great and perfect alternative to much higher cost plugs that do the exact same thing.

Crutchfield customer from Mesa, AZ on 2/21/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I never thought for a second Id submit a review for a lowly banana plug. Ive read and heard many reviews about banana plugs and heard many warnings about the Setscrew style. I had zero issues with these not fitting tight or set screws fallingthrough. They fit my 16 guage (folded in half) beautifully, and the plug was Very snug in the binding post. BTW the kit if 20 comes with a quality mini screwdriver. I highly recommend these

Crutchfield Banana Connectors

Crutchfield customer from Arlington, VA on 1/30/2019

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Plastic. The tips were really spread out and would not fit into the speaker Jack terminals without extreme force. I had to go back to an old Parts receiver to force them in so they would fit in my main system. It's a shame because I really like Crutchfield and have been a customer since the early 90s.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: quality control

Great Clips to hook your speakers to your receiver cleanly and easily.

Pros: Very inexpensive to get the job done.

Cons: Not sure because I've never bought more expensive banana Jacks. So I'm not sure of the difference in sound quality.

Crutchfield customer from Sayreville, NJ on 12/23/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Clips take some time to connect wire with screws and a provided screwdriver, but once together a very good secure plug compared to some other cheaper clips I had used that you need to spread the wires out and reassemble than could fall apart.

Carlos from Banning, CA on 11/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use, but a little bulky. They add to the depth of the receiver in a stand. OK, once they're out of sight. They do the job.

Pros: Easy to use, they work well.

Cons: They look clunky

Wes from New York City, NY on 11/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are the best around and easy to get set up. Makes it easy to shift things around, especially if you're in a tight spot. At times i have to pull out the receiver or cable box and disconnect speakers. With this the process is simple. Plus Crutchfield is so easy to deal with and provides a lot of service the customer.

Pros: Easy to connect wire to plug

Cons: None

Keith from Crete, IL on 11/11/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like the fact that there are 2 screws to hold the wire in place. The included screwdriver was a nice bonus. At first I was a little upset because I thought the banana plugs were too big, but they do go in they are just snug and you have to push them in straight.

jay from San Antonio, TX on 6/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were really easy to attach to the speaker wire. Including the screwdriver was exceptionally helpful. Had a little trouble inserting the banana plugs into the speakers and receiver. That was because they are extremely snug! No more snaking wire through tiny holes in posts!!! Thank you Crutchfield!

Crutchfield customer from Massapequa Pk, NY on 5/27/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Work great , EZ to install The only thing I would change is the screw should be a Phillips head instead of a flat head. As I was tightening the screw I slipped a few times and stabbed my thumb & index finger. This would have been avoided with a Phillips head screw.

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.
