Asked by: billy
There really isn't a great answer. I'm an employee that just had this experience. My thoughts after multiple years in the pro audio filed is that they are almost geared towards creating a "TIP/SLEEVE or TS connection type of thing for a more modular way of setting things up. Physics of the connections with these are not good though. Recommend doing an A/V BNC termination instead. just as easy, more control, more connections.

Center-Pin Quick Connect Banana Plugs is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed. Does not have the proper milling to permit compression at the end of the inner ... Poorly designed. Does not have the proper milling to permit compression at the end of the inner threaded sleeve. The inner threaded sleeve should have a reduced radius at the tip (no threads) to allow the wires to fold over and be compressed against the banana tip. The threads go all the way to the end of the inner sleeve, so that is prevented. The only way to use them is to make a wad of wire at the end and try to compress that. Even then, once tightened, the red(black) plastic washer is then loose. I just can't figure out why someone would go through all the trouble to manufacture, package and sell this when it flat out does not work properly. It's like they copied another design to sell cheap, but forgot to check if it actually functions. ???

I never found any difficulty understanding how to used these plugs. I've purchased 7 sets of these. CE Tech should have included some instructions, and it would have helped, but I can see 5 different ways of connecting wire to these plugs. Two from the back and 3 from the side. Customer can also see Youtube vid as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Figured it out. Love them Should have included instructions but they seem to work great in either of two ways I use them. First off and this is probably not original design, I have 10 gauge Linn cable that is too thick for standard plugs. With these I can insert the stripped wire in from the side and tighten the main screw down like an oversized setscrew. Cable hangs down from plug nicely. No difference in sound from the Linn plugs I had soldered on before. For light gauge wire you can use them as intended I think. Strip an inch of wire and insert into hole in end of setscrew which should be backed out enough to barely clear side hole. Bend strands of wire back over end of screw and then turn barrel to tighten the screw and wire against top of plug pin. I was able to tighten banana pin into barrel with thin pliers grabbing solid ring next to barrel. Working very well so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible. Best I can see, leave a long bunch of copper inside, crush it when you screw the two halves together, and hope. I hate products requiring hope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This worked Strip a small amount of wire (maybe a 1/4") and insert the bare portion into the big hole through either side of the barrel and tighten. When checked with an Ohmmeter, it provides a solid connection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CE Tech Banana plugs Poor design there is no obvious way to bind the wires in the connector. And I can see a lot of other reviews citing the same problem. It didn't occur to me to read the reviews 1st. I'm surprised Home depot still sell them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbelieveable I am an audiophile since 1960. I've connected banana plugs to more speaker cables then I can remember. Never had a problem, never needed instructions. But these plugs do not come with instructions when it's most needed. Not obvious how they go together. They're going back tomorrow on principle.
