What Is A Banana Plug?
We’ve all stripped the coating off speaker wire, twisted the ends and connected them to speakers or receivers but the method is about as low tech as it gets. Strands of bare wire come loose and it doesn’t always make the best electrical connection. The far better alternative with a funny name is the Banana plug. This inexpensive plug easily attaches to the end of the speaker wire making for an easier installation and many OSD Audio banana plugs include gold plating for a reliable electrical connection.
