...by Dr Seuss. No, actually, I'm talking about banana plugs listed here: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...D=2476&DS_ID=3 and elsewhere. These are supposed to be compression type plugs but the description says: With compression type plugs that I've used, you put the wire through, spread it out over the rim of the piece and then screw the other piece down on it. It seems you couldn't do this with these plugs, so how does it work? Are you supposed to spread the wire out or just put it through straight (assuming rear entry)? What tightens down on the wire?
