I recently bought a pair of Analysis Plus Oval 12 speaker cables that I intend to hook up to my Paradigm Mini monitors. However, the connectors on those cables do not fit around the binding posts on the speakers. They are horseshoe shaped connectors. What I did was put one of the 'horseshoes' into the hole on each binding post and twisted it tight. Is this a problem? The other side of the connector is exposed and I am worried that I am not getting full output from my speakers. I would rather not cut into the wire since it is so thick and I dont think it will fit into a banana plug. Thanks for any input, as I am very new to the the HT area.
