QuickLock MKII Gold Banana Connectors For Easy Self Crimping Terminations - 2 pr. QuickLock Monster Bananas

From the Manufacturer

Connecting Your World Home theater systems are made up of multiple components from sources such as Blu-Ray players and switching playback devices such as AV receivers which allow playing and selecting content, to displays and speakers that bring the content to our eyes and ears. Within a system the distance between sources and switching devices is usually short and pre-terminated cables usually fit the task--but speakers are a different story. Distance to speakers varies and in some cases pre-terminated cables which have ends connected during manufacturing are either too long or too short, using un-terminated cable is the best way to ensure that cables are the proper length. Using bare wire at the amplifier/AV receiver and speakers is not the best connection, as the strands of wire can get separated and the exposure of any copper in the cable can erode over time. In order to make the best connection the bare wire needs to be terminated. The Right Connection Making the right connection is quick and easy with Monster QuickLock connectors; these specially designed connectors give the right termination for all your speaker connections. Simply slip the wire through the specifically designed jacket, bend the wire over and screw the termination. Your wire is now crimp in place and ready to connect to your amplifier and speakers. Terminations are available in Banana Plug, Angled Spades, and FlexiPin to fit whatever type of terminal is on your amplifier and speakers. Each termination is gold plated for long-lasting corrosion protection and to optimize the performance from your speakers by making a solid connection. Should you need to change the termination type, each end is interchangeable with the jacket so the operation is quick and easy.

Everyone raves about how easy these are to install. Well, that's mostly true. However, nowhere do the very brief instructions tell you the obvious: unscrew the top of each plug from the bottom. Then, the directions make more sense. Just thread the stripped speaker wire up through the bottom half of the plugs, fan out/spray the wires around, then screw the top back on (so the individual speaker wires will get caught under the top part of the plug and the twist-on seals the current connection). That's how easy it is -- once you figure out you need to unscrew the top. I know, it may seem incredibly obvious, but it wasn't. Also, if you leave too much bare wire exposed, it becomes very hard to tighten the top back on, so strip a little bit less then what the directions recommend. I actually found a good video on [...] that very quickly goes over how to prep these plugs, so if you're confused, just look for that video.

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....)

Just try hooking up modern 7.1 receivers with bare wires and notice how quickly things can get messy. The bindings posts are so tightly packed that you have no room to maneuver at all. Worst still a minor jolt of your entertainment center might knock one or more channels out of commission. Installation of these connectors is a no-brainer: unscrew the top half, strip 5/8" of speaker wire, insert the bare wire through the lower half and fan out, screw back the top half and you're done. It is clean, convenient and durable.

Speaker cable ends, they seem like such a simple idea. Until now, nobody made an easy to use solid connector.

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.

I've bought Monster products for years. They typically are on the high-priced side but were always made robustly, such as the heavy turbine connectors on their audio cables. Not this product though, it's a disappointment. The issue is the metal spring connector portion, they're made of thin metal that's flimsy to boot. After a single insertion into my amplifier jacks and a few weeks of the speaker cable weight tugging on them, the springs are pushed nearly flat. I have some old speaker connectors I got from one of the home improvement stores for less that were much more stout, after 5 yrs. of use they never bent out of shape like these flimsy things. I would have bought those but the store quit carrying them.

Do yourself a favor and find another connector. Monster should be ashamed of this product.

I've tried a number of them. Quicklock sets aren't cheap, but they are worth every penny. I currently run them on both ends of each speaker on my 7 out of 7.1 home theatre setup. (The subwoofer getting it's own RCA subwoofer cable.)

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.
