Great thread, thanks PE! I ordered the sleeving and end boots on ebay as listed by you and already have some speaker wire I will be using. My question is, what are the pros/cons of using banana plugs vs bare wire?
It seems as if the plugs are simply for convenience(plugging and unplugging) sake while bare wire actually provides a better "signal transfer". Is this true?
I am holding off on the banana plug purchase until I determine whats best for me. I do not plan on doing a ton of plugging/unplugging. The wires I am making are for my front three speakers. I am mainly doing this DIY project for esthetics and good insulation from interference ( I went with in wall speaker wire which should help too).
Thanks for any input!
