    I bought some Ultra Link banana plugs for my speakers, and I have never used a banana plug before and have no idea how to. Their isn't any instructions either. Help please!

    Thanks Matt.

    Cut 1/2inch insulation.

    Unscrew Ultralinks.

    Insert one spkr wire into bottom piece. THEN splay back the wires with strands loosened DOWN over the top of this bottom piece.

    Ensuring the strands are distributed around, pick up the top piece and screw together. Check for tightness by lightly pulling the wire.

    MAKE SURE no loose copper strands are sticking out from the screw junction.

    Sweet, thanks Bill. Its been 10yrs since I last had speakers and back then I didn't know about the difference good connections can make. Although some prefer the spade connectors.

    Thanks again.
