Banana Plug Central
Take your Home Theater system to the next level and make installing that system a breeze with Banana Plugs. Traditional speaker wire connections work by connecting bare speaker wire in a clumsy screw down or clasp down connection. These connections are time consuming and unreliable. Banana plugs come in many varieties, but all are designed to serve the same purpose: to simplify and enhance the connection between speaker wire and device/speaker. After choosing your style, be sure to read our guide on how to install banana plugs.

These are also referred to as “Open-Screw Type” Banana Plugs. With these Banana Plugs you can easily connect your speaker wire into the side the Banana Plug, or through the bottom like normal a Banana Plug. These have many advantages in quick and simple projects as they can be terminated much more quickly, requiring no additional tools. Simply twist the bottom loose, stick the cable in, and tighten them down. Also great for situations with low clearance between the back of your receiver and your wall.
The Pro Maestro Banana Plugs are more on the side of the traditional Banana Plug. These simply will connect through the bottom of the Banana Plugs. The speaker wire is then fastened inside by a single cable-screw. With the Pro Maestro’s heavy duty steel casing and tight cable-screw design, you can rest assure that you have a solid connection from your stereo to your speakers while eliminating the hassle and frustration of installing a home theater system.
The Silverback Banana Plugs are very similar to the Pro Maestro as they use screws to tighten down and secure the speaker wire.

This will give you the most secure connection possible and over all best sound quality.
