Product Description

These Silverback banana plugs have the quality you've come to expect from Sewell, including; gold plated connectors, a heavy duty, but light casing, and a tight cable-screw design. What sets these banana plugs apart is its unique 2 screw lock design. This connection will secure your cable more than a single screw, or open screw design. Dual screw connectivity provides a secure connection, durability, and the most crisp and clear signal possible with more signal transmission through contact. Similar to our Pro Maestro banana plug, this easy solder-less installation only requires a small flat head screw driver and four steps. Loosen the screws and feed the speaker cable into the silverback. Lock down the cable with both screws. Screw the banana plug back together. You're finished. All in all you should only need 30 seconds for this entire operation. Today, many electronics use the banana plug interface, also known as binding post (referring to this connection in its female form). This female binding post connection that accepts this banana plug is found commonly on virtually all audio/video receivers, speaker wall plates, and more. Banana plugs offer an alternative to inserting a bare speaker wire into the equipment. Often a bare speaker connection is not as reliable as a guaranteed banana plug connection. Wires tend to get pulled out or frizzy after time passes. Banana plugs require only one install, giving you a permanent and robust connector at the end of your speaker wire.

I went to Richer Sounds and they offered me 10 pairs of their "premium" banana plugs for £100. These plugs cost £20 for 12 pairs and I doubt there is any material difference. This was the first time I had tried to connect plugs and it went smoothly. The instructions on the back of the packaging were minimal but even for a novice like me it only took a couple of minutes to work out what you had to do. Then it took about 5 minutes per wire, + and negative, to make the connection. Unscrew the barrel, loosen the 2 screws on the connector, insert the wire, re-tighten screws, replace the barrel. Was easy and all you need is a small flat screwdriver. Needn't have even taken 5 minutes but I was deliberate. The connection is fine and when plugged into the receiver all speakers worked. Great value and I just feel better about this type of connection rather than bare wire. Especially useful if you want to change your receiver or play around regularly. Well worth the money.

Have a 7.1 system so needed plenty of cable plugs (28 to be precise!), and this set of 24 allowed me to wire up all the connections at the amplifier (14) and five of the speakers at the speaker ends (10), just leaving the rear surrounds with my old plugs attached.

The quality of the plugs is excellent. What makes them so different to other plugs I have used in the past is threefold:

1) They have double grub screws to attach the cable in the plug......single screws notoriously come loose and I've had to refit single screw plugs many times to my speakers, especially after they have been moved about a bit.

2) The outer casing screws off the plug section completely, making it a piece of cake to wire them, and leaves a very tidy finish to the plug.

3) The actual size of the plug is much larger/fuller than plugs I've had before. In fact they are 50% larger than the ones i just replaced. That doesn't mean they are over-sized, but rather the plugs really have to be pushed firmly into the speaker posts to get them in, meaning the connection must be very very good, and highly unlikely they will ever come out of the posts when moving speakers about.

Brilliant set of plugs for the price.

I bought these banana plugs expecting 12 pairs but instead only receiving 6 pair. Sewell seems to have changed the listing to only 6 pair citing the original description as a mistake. This is clearly not an error as I have been told but seems very deliberate (all the reviews for this product will attest to it being 12 pair).
Although I have been unsuccessful in receiving the remaining 6 pairs of banana plugs, Amazon have been very helpful and have discounted me a percentage of the original price.

I shall be avoiding Sewell and their shady practices in the future.

(PS. only tried a few but so far the banana plugs seem to be okay, nothing more)

After buying an amp I wanted to have a solid way of connecting my cables to the amp. This product was exactly what I wanted. Each plug is of a metal construction and have two screws (top and bottom) to fix the speaker cable to the plug, fits firmly and works really well.

My only odd querk - is why 6 pairs? For 5.1 setups, you have 5 speakers and a (active) sub (so if your like me you end up with a spare pair). The connectors are solid so you're unlikely to thread them or break any, so having a spare is a little odd! I guess it might be there for those with a passive sub perhaps? but surely most people dont do that do they?

Excellent value, good quality.

Don't waste your money on more expensive banana plugs. These are superb. Easy to fit. Durable. A great fit in the female sockets.
I own LINN & Naim HI-Fi and understand the value of good quality connections. I've paid stupid money for them. These Sewell plugs were used in a high quality 5.1 Home Cinema System to connect Dali Speakers to a Denon AV Receiver. They accept thin micro speaker cable such as QED Micro and hold them firmly due to their double grub screws. They accept most major quality speaker cables as you would accept. I use them with QED Silver Anniversary and all is well.
For the money these are very good value. Look no further
