BK-2 Non-Locking (Crimp) Banana Plug - for Speaker Cables
Non-locking Banana Speaker Cable Connector
This banana plug is designed to provide nine points of contact instead of the usual four and accepts wire sizes from 14 to 10 gauge. Most banana plugs made by our competitors that we have seen, are made of brass with gold plating on top. Brass which only is 70% copper is not a very good conductor of electricity and consequently there is a performance sacrifice. Ours are made of an alloy that is 90% copper and then plated with gold. (One hundred percent copper would be too soft for this purpose). The ten percent of zinc we add to our alloy gives it the required strength and hardness. Because it is mainly copper, it conducts electricity far better than those of our competitors.
