Try WBT. They are some of the best I have seen. Arthur

As far as banana CONNECTORS go : ) I like the WBT's the best out of those that i've tried.
As far as "bananas" ( the fruit ) goes, Bob Dole says: "Bob Dole likes Dole bananas the best". : )
Personally, i've never been able to tell which brand is which or found that i liked one brand over the other. As far as i can tell, i like all brands pretty equally. That is, so long as you peel them first. I've never done a DBT with the peels on. THAT could be the deciding factor : ) Sean
Thanks all but listen to this crazy idea. Why not bypass the connector all together and strip the wire about 1/2 inch and slide it into the speaker terminal and then wedge in a piece of something to keep it tight. Yes, I know that you would have to make sure your wedge was real tight and you couldn't change speakers without alot of difficulty but if you are going to keep the system and not fool with it why not? Seems like the best connection without splicing right onto the wire in the speaker itself. Any thoughts?
BFA bananas all the way. they have solid contact all the way around and into the terminals and have a very strong grip. there are various types of attachment. i use nerve audio on ebay.. i buy copper sleeves to put over them and crimp the crunk out of them. it's a very secure connection.
i also used these once. audioquest. they came with crimp sleeves and were even more solid, but also bulkier. but you don't have to search for copper crimp sleeves.
either way, check out BFAs. more contact area than a spade and stronger spring force than regular bananas.
Yeah, right here.
I just replaced Audioquest bananas with Eichmann sawtooth bananas I bought from VH Audio. I like them more than the Eichmann bayonets and they are way better than the AQ bananas.
Props to Chris at https://www.vhaudio.com/ for quality products and great customer service at fair prices.
I've read here and at other places that these work well: https://douglasconnection.com/product/furez-tstsb40ag-silver-plated-copper-banana-plug-connectors-pair/
There are other types and sizes to fit various gauges of wire.
All the best,
