Features & Specifications

When connecting speaker wire from a receiver or an amp to your speakers, banana plugs are far easier and more reliable than the old "strip and twist" method. So named due to its banana-shaped prong, banana plugs are also frequently used to test electronic equipment. OSD Audio speaker banana plugs are very sturdy, and the gold plating provides a reliable electrical connection. These banana plug speaker connectors are made from pure copper, which sets them apart from cheaper products on the market. Buy only the best audio banana plug for your home speaker system from Outdoor Speaker Depot.

Note: The banana plug is the male version of the plug. The banana jack is the female version.

Other uses for the banana plug is to test electronic equipment - specifically used to terminate patch cords. It should be noted that the banana plug is the male version and the banana jack is referred to the female version of the plug.

Hi, Can you please tell me how good a conductor are those 'berillium springs' in comparison to pure copper, (IACS) and do they conduct well on these plugs? Best regards. Fraser.
1 Answers
Hi Fraser, The copper beryllium is a copper alloy that is used to create a spring action for the pin when it is plugged into the female connector.It is not only an excellent conductor but adds the flexibility needed for the tightest connection. Pure copper does not work for this application. TL/MA - 1572

Does the speaker wire install into the hole in the end or the hole in the side, or either way???
3 Answers
Johnny, It would be on the side, a screw type connection with the bare wire. CL

Hi Johnny: The hole at the top allows you to piggyback or stack another banana plug for connecting two pair of speakers from the same outputs. TL

What is the advantage over these compared with product # OSD-HB-002? (which are less expensive) Both are "Pure Premium" and the other is more compact... which I'd figured is advantageous in some ways.
2 Answers
Chuck, The HB-002 isa little more compact design, the The A405 features a Copper Berilyium spring in the connecting pin and fit a little tighter making them cost more. The HB-002 are a great value under $2.00 I hope that helps! -CL
Customer Service - Q&A
on January 9, 2012
Chuck, The HB-002 is more compact, the A405 would be a longer banana plug. They both fit the same though, dont worry. The A405 uses more copper and is a bigger plug so it costs slightly more to manufacture. I hope that helps! -CL

Great store. I purchased 5 pair of banana plugs and chose 2 day shipping. The items were shipped the day I placed the order and arrived promptly. The plugs were great and the communication was excellent on the part of the seller. I plan to purchase more items from them very soon.
