    Does anybody know where to get rear entry banana plugs for 10ga or larger cable? I have searched everywhere with no luck. I have bi-wired speakers using 12ga. cable, so when twisted together I have about a 9ga. cable to terminate into the A/V receiver. Crimp or solder type plugs are preferred - and I don't want the side entry type.

    Hey:
    I use Radio Shack plugs, part number 278-307 and they look big enough to fit a wire that big. I use 12GA and there is lots of extra room, and they are a straight type plug. They are also locking type plugs.
    Hope this helps.

    Later

    I've already checked the R.S. plugs - too small I'm afraid. Following a lead on Analysis Plus and Cable Pro connectors which looks promising - crimp style and less than than $5 each.[​IMG]

    instead of twisting, why not piggy-back?

    Sounds like you could jumpstart those speakers with those cables. BTW bi-wiring speakers is one of the 10 most widely spread audio myths. [​IMG]
