What suggestions do you have for ready made cables with spade/banana plug terminations?
Good news, today, all you need is a screwdriver.These banana clips
have opposing threaded screws to lock the stripped wire in place.
Strip the wire, insert the wire into the open end of the banana plug, tighten the two screws, screw the bezel collar on and voila!, terminated banana plug ends. High cool factor.
The problem with bare wire is, you have to loop the wire around the post and then crank the locking knob down on the exposed wire. Over the days, weeks and months, the wire compresses and the wire loosens and unless tightened again, you get a loose contact and this is not good. That doesn't happen with properly terminated wire ends.
The sky's the limit in how much you want to fancy your speaker cables up. I like fancy looking. I like fancy looking women, cars, houses, boats, et cetera.
