I just bought a pair of Infinity p363 speakers from fry's and I'm wondering how to use banana clips with these speakers? There is a plastic cover blocking the binding posts that I would normally put the banana clip into. I know a lot of people have these speakers, any ideas on how to use banana clips with these? Or should I be looking to hook them up a different way? I'm new to home audio and I'm starting out with:
2 Infinity P363 Floor Speakers
2 P163 Bookshelf speakers
1 PC351 Center Speaker
1 Denon AVR-1913 Reciever
50 ft of 12AWG speaker wire
10 closed banana clips

Is there anything else I need? I have received all the parts except the PC351, that I had to order from Crutchfield online. Any ideas and suggestions are welcome and hopefully someone has an idea for removing the plastic cover(if you are supposed to?)

It's so they can ship them to europe (where some of the power plugs are the exact size and spacing of banana plugs).

This page of the review on AH discusses removing them, though the reviewer ended up with a drill. frown.gif

Peachtree audio DAC-iT, Logitech Harmony 650 remote, Logitech MediaBoard Pro Bluetooth k/b

Those things can be pried out with a small screwdriver and discarded.

Make sure the knurled, outer part of the post is screwed all the way in. Then use a knife edge to dig underneath the lip of the plastic caps and pry them off. It's not at all difficult to remove. I find a flat head screwdriver is a bit too thick to do this gracefully.
