Other than that, I'm not sure I notice a significant sound increase, but it certainly didn't get any worse. And as others have pointed out, these should prevent shorts. (Plus, they're a whole lot easier to just plug right in to the middle of the speaker input knobs in than if you're trying to reach behind your receiver to screw in those little knobs around and around and around the piece of exposed wire you've stuck in....)
Monster is probably one of my least favorite companies in the world, most everything they make is overpriced and of dubious benefit to your audio / video system. Except these little gems, the QuickLock gold banana connectors. I like just about everything about these.
Each package is enough connectors to terminate one cable for one speaker (red and blue connectors for each end of the cable). So if you are doing up a stereo, you will need two packages of these. Your speaker or receiver can use banana connectors if it has a big knob with a hole in the middle (on speakers the knobs can be gold plated metal, on receivers or amplifiers the knobs are usually plastic).
The tiny instruction sheet included is only somewhat helpful. These aren't really self-anything. First step is to unscrew the connector - grab the black rubber part with one hand and the gold top part with the other hand, and turn to unscrew the two parts. Now split your speaker wire down the middle for about three inches to separate the wire into two wires. Strip the end of the wire about 5/8ths of an inch. Twist the wire strands so they are tight and won't spread out for the next step. Slide the black rubber half of the connector over the wire. The next part isn't exactly obvious the first time, you now need to separate the wire strands so then bend back around the cylinder the wire was just pushed through. The diagram in the instruction sheet is pretty good, just think about bending those wires back evenly all around the cylinder end so they form one layer of wire. Thinking of a mushroom might help. Now screw on the top gold half. There should be no bare copper wires visible anywhere.Read more ›
Do yourself a favor and find another connector. Monster should be ashamed of this product.
I can't say enough about these terminals. They last forever, resist corrosion and have prevented a number of shortouts on my components. I have quite a few devices plugged into my AV receiver and with bare wire, you're bound to get a short some time if you tend to re-wire occasionally. I've used them on 16, 14 and even 12 gauge speaker wire all with no problems. Gotta love crimpless!
They're so easy to use and provide such excellent signal quality that I even have a set of banana and flex-tip connected to my subwoofers and amp in my car.

Not sure why Monster discontinued these QuickLock ends as I've been using them for some time now and they are simply fantastic!Published 2 months ago by Luvur_69
I've had these for about 3 years now and I recently just unscrewed the plug to check the wire out and it is still brand new. No faded wire what so ever. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Terminator
