hey guys
was just wondering what are good but not too expensive banana plugs?

because i was looking to get for all my rooms in the house, because i already bought the wall panel for 4 speakers, you can see in the attached photo how it looks, i was bored and took a picture lol
i love monoprice :)
anyways...what are good banana plugs? because i finally got the s9100THX from Onkyo, i got two Jamo E680 Standing speakers to replace the two front speakers from the Onkyo system, got wire, got the wall panel installed today in all the rooms, took about 20-30 mins per room lol, but now i need some banana plugs to use with everything :)

If those connectors can accept bare wire, then use that.  Banana connectors are great when you connect / disconnect speakers all of the time.  If you really want/need them then Parts Express or Monoprice are the go-to sites.

I use banana plugs on all my connections for easier hookup -- especially at the receiver end, where space is tight, making it difficult to insert bare wire in the binding posts. Anyway, I purchased the plugs at Radio Shack and www.partsexpress.com . Plugs that handle 12ga cable were $4 - $5 per pair.

Those are not made by "Nakamichi" the audio company... That name is being used illegally on those to fool buyers into purchasing by brand name.
