AudioQuest's Banana adapter is the easiest way to convert any speaker cable with spade terminations to bananas. Each banana is gold plated and literally bolts onto the spade providing a secure, gas-tight connection.

Does the speaker wire have to be terminated before it can be used with the banana adaptors?
Yes. Due to the design of the adaptor the wire must have a spade termination to ensure a proper fit. This also provides a right angle connection to ensure strain on the wire is kept to a minimum.

|Great for ribbon wire|
Mine stayed tightened. I dont see how they could possibly come loose after tightening them with a wrench. I love these!

to prevent the loosening that someone may encounter simply apply 1 SMALL drop of Loctite Red thread adhesive.

I just bought 2 of these to try out. What a POS these are. They will not stay tight.
