Eltax HT-2 surrounds and banana plugs


Prominent Member
I have a pair of Eltax HT-2 Bipolar rears and although the wiring was concealed in the ceiling when my room was being built, I have always just used bare cable to wire them. Now I'm completely rewiring my room and I wanted to get some banana plugs for the HT-2's. The problem is, the binding posts come out level with the back of the speaker leaving little room for manoeuvre. Even right angled ones would cause a slight problem but nothing near that caused by regular plugs. The problem is, I can't find 90 degree plugs, just 45 degree and I know by looking at them that they wouldn't do.

Do any of you have. or have had, HT2-s and if so, how did you wire them?
