    I am wondering what method you recommend for connecting speakers wires to your CS series passive subs? Are there any Spade connectors that you know of that actually fit (nice ones) or preferably banana plugs that fit?

    I have banana plugs into the Samson S1000 and bare wire into the subs. No problems what so ever.

    Bare 12ga here. I have seen 90 degree bananas somewhere that would work. Spades are good, too, but I like bare wire.

    Sorry for the lack of good info...

    Barry,

    I too also use bare 12g Home Depot wire on the amp and on the subs. Not a problem at all.

    Bananas to the S1000 and bare wire to the CS_Ultra. I use 12ga Monster. Works flawlessly.

    Thanks Guys. I had tried bare wire (I'm using 12 gauge Esoteric) but when I went to screw down the terminals they softof got cockeyed and went on at an angle.
    After reading your suggestions, I took another look and stripped off a bit more of the insulation. After that, they screwed down more evenly. It would be nice if SVS sold some nifty banana plugs that would work with these puppies. It would sure make moving them around the room to find the best placement alot easier! In the end though, I do love these bad boys and plan to leave them right where they are now. [​IMG]
