    **** Although I started this thread in Jan 2008, CPC have special promotions from time to time. so keep your eye open if they are not currently on offer *****

    Top quality banana plugs on special offer at CPC. Only a couple of days to go I believe.

    EDIT: 8 April 2012

    [-]Original bananas are now over a £1 but the same maker has some new ones with screw connections which is really neat.[/-]

    Pricing back down at an attractive 48p each + delivery if you buy 10 or more.

    Buy 10 or more and it's more or less 50p each plus posting which may be expensive depending if you get other stuff.

    I like these because you can either enter the cable on the top or the side. Side entry allows them to be stacked if messing about with bi-amping/wiring at the amp end.

    Got mine today.

    This is going to be a real silly question, but what is the best way to terminate these?
    Is it just feed the wire in the back and try and poke it out the side a bit and screw down? The fact the thread goes all the way down means you can't terminate them like it is shown here:
    http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/speaker/Speaker_cable_termination.pdf

    It seems to me they could work loose quite easily.

    For a top entry (missionary) as opposed to a side entry (spoons) just push enough cable through the center spindle and pull enough through one side entry hole to be able to double up on itself and pushed back through the other side of the side entry, if you see what I mean. Then tighten the knurled end up. If you really want to get thorough then people have been known to solder the wire into the banana plug. But for me I'm happy with the hand tightened nut.

    Searching for the part number won't work. Click the links I gave. They still work; I just tried.

    EDIT:

    Well. although the links work, you get an error on buying one. Sorry, looks like the deal is finished. For now! These have been offered on a special before, so I'll keep my eyes open!

    I put these in my basket few weeks back and couldn't decide if I wanted them. Since putting the price up, I decided I wanted them and went back to my basket and they were still there for the old price. I managed to checkout and got them delivered couple of days ago. Excellent bargain! :smashin:

    The UK price is now about the same I think. (£1.12 inc VAT)

    BTW, you mustn't link to images directly on another web site without their permission: it is seen as bandwidth theft. My images were captured and uploaded to Flickr.

    these seem to be back in at 50.5p each - although i get a £7 handling charge (inc VAT) seems a bit excessive?

    :EDIT: the handling charge is P&P - I thought I was going to get charged both lol I've just ordered 20 :D

    Nice spot Dubplate.

    So 20 off costs £17.10 all in delivered and VAT. Still much cheaper than elsewhere.

    Fill your boots people whilst it lasts (again!)

    hi, quick question.

    Am i meant to insulate these plugs? Is there any chance of them shorting out? The plugs aren't physically touching but they are pretty close!

    Also, how can I tell if they are shorting out? Do I just sit and wait until my amp goes bang? :suicide:

    Modern AV amplifiers have the ability to detect short circuits in the speaker output and will auto shutoff if there is a problem. So no worries on that score.

    If you're at all concerned just slip a small piece of thin cardboard inbetween the banana plugs and sockets.

    Just a bump as a reminder that these are still available on the CPC web site for 50p +P&P.
