Q: Speaker cable connectors?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by arther daily, Sep 6, 2001.


  1. Amp to Speaker cable usually uses one fo three types of connector:

    1/4" jack
    3-pin connector

    ...and... what's the last one called?

    Those fat round plastuc ones that you dont get that often?

    Somebody please help me?

    Keystone offers an expanded line of standard 0.175" (4,44mm) diameter and miniature 0.125 diameter (3,18mm) size Banana Plugs and Jacks in a variety of mounting configurations to suit most applications.

    arther,

    Those are Neutrik Speakon connectors.

    They are the new standard for high power connections. Banana jacks are going away because safety regs in Europe have banned them (exposed conductors).
