    Could anyone kindly post some high quality photos on how unterminated wires goes into the Monitor Audio silver series center speaker (RSLCR).

    Cos I want to know if the QED airloc plug can connect to the same hole where the unterminated wire goes (rather than the usual hole for banana plug)

    Thanks in advance.:)

    Hi Daimi, why would you want to plug a banana plug in there?:)

    Hi Dankeech,

    Thanks for your reply.

    The reason due to the space constraint.... there is only 21.5cm depth and the dimension of the RSLCR is 20cm (excluding terminals)

    Original I have the Radius R180 as the center speaker... and now I want to upgrade to the RSLCR which matches the existing RS6 for left and right speaker.

    I understand now. If memory serves me correctly, the hole that goes through the side of the terminal is actually larger. I'm sure you could put an airloc through it and gently tighten the terminals slightly, just don't do it very tightly or you could damage the terminal or it's thumb-screw or thread.

    Airloc's can be removed by the way, case of unscrewing the casing and going from there really, may be best option.

    If you haven't already put Airlocs on the cable, in yourposition, I wouldn't get them attached to the centre speaker end. Airloc is likely on this circumstance to make a worse connection than bare speaker cable due to the difference in size of terminal hole to airloc plug.

    Dan.
