    Hi,
    hope someone can help me with the above question. Due to moving I require longer speaker cables and I have decided to give the cat-5 speaker cables a go due to cash flow :rolleyes:

    However as BFC connectors seem to have died a death, it will be much easier to get bananas plug from maplins. I'm sure I read that BFC's can accept banana plug but can anyone confirm this?

    Was/Is there not a universal connector? A "hollow" banana plug with a plastic sleeve you could screw on to turn it into a BFC. There's no way I could get a banana plug in the back of my SX - but it will take bare wires.
    Cheers

    And spades or even lugs. Still the best type of connectors IMHO, though the least stylish...

    The PX can certainly take spades, bare wire, and BFA connectors (that is what they are correctly termed).
    Sevenoaks (and other places I's sure!) sell a hollow banana with a screw on sleeve which fits BOTH bananas and BFA's.

    eBay has 4 sellers with them (search under "BFA connector).

    That'll sort it!
