    I have JBL S-Center, JBL S-36s and my reciever is a H/K AVR-65, and I was thinking of changing all my bare wire or pins connections to Monster Dual Banana Plugs. I can get them at a good price so I was considering upgrading my connections.

    So does anyone know if I will have a problem.

    Or know if the radio shack dual banana plugs are the same spacing as Monster ones, if so I will go to the shack and get me a set to test.

    Loring,
    Dual banana plugs offer nothing more than a plastic bridge between two plugs for stability, in case the plugs at the amp end or at the spkrs are subject to knocking about.
    I have a set of singles from Radio Shack and another set from my hi-fi speciality store (not Monster branded). The idea is to get a nice plunk-it-in tight connection in the binding post (screwed in) and dont knock 'em. Using singles, it's also important that NO bare wire strands overhang the barrel after the screw-in connection is made.
    That said, Monster sell dual posts for $14.95 (Monster.com) while RadioShack offers dual for $6.59 Part No. 910-0919. Your choice.

    Nice company! Yea the 8 AWG banana plugs were great. A little over kill but better to be safe than sorry. Both the tip and the top are threaded into the housing. The hole(stacking plug) in the end is big enough to stick a 12 AWG through it and put a 90 degree bend at the end and cinch it down.4 pack for $6.25=gold plated//
    They are having a cable sale. I picked up a gold plated extra heavy 12' combo cable with SVHS and TOSLINK for $10.60. WOW!!!!! 12' SVHS+gold(heavy) for $2.95. And some heavy RCA+gold, 12' for $2.57. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
