    Anyone know where I can find the right speaker connectors for my Pioneer system? Photo below. I believe I need a 4.2mm connector. I've found a few results on eBay but the prices seem a little steep for a couple of connectors. Thanks!

    I think that making an acquaintance with your local dump, recycling centre is in order. . Loudspeakers with these connections are constantly being thrown away.. it a standard fitting on very low cost kitchen or bedroom systems and on some of the lesser quality home cinema boxes. .. that's not being snobbish , I have a Sony with similar fittings by my bedside.

    They are crimp connectors so getting cables with them already fitted is best @dannnielll has the right idea, maybe a charity shop as well.

    I think these are probably the same ones I have (or rather don't have) on a Pioneer 5.1 system I bought on ebay. Seller told me everything aside for speaker cable was included which didn't seem like a problem until a year or so later when I tried to set it up. I searched high and low at the time and only found very overpriced ebay sellers that could help so gave up. Please do post back here if you find a place though!

    That looks like the Pin Header for a Computer Fan. I'm not sure where you can get them as they are usually used on Computer Mother Boards.
