Connecting wires to a Nexxtech Banana connector

I bought Nexxtech banana connectors from Circuit City. I am not able to figure out how to connect the wires to them. It seems like the plastic cover should come out and allow me to unscrew the screw I see inside but the plastic cover is stuck on tight.How do I connect the wires to them? They are NOT the crimping style. They are supposed to be the toolless kind.

Yes, the speakerconns can have bananas, you have to remove the little plasticcovers in the middle of the conns...also you can use thick wire with this connectors...

You can hook them up either way, the banana jacks are good for hooking two speakers to one terminal (ie one through the botton, one banana) but the electrical connection is the same either way. Sometimes the banana capable jacks are on speakers A and speakers B, and the surround don't accept banana plugs, your stuck with how your reciever is wired.

SOURCE: Installation of banana plugs

Well it really has to do with the type of banna plug used. Some can be soldered, crimped or just threaded on to the wire. Do you have a make and model I can sheck for you? My guess is the later look inside for threads kinda like a wire nut.

How do I hook up banana plugs to a infinity PC 350 speaker


The illustration in the manual I found at retrevo.com isn't detailed enough to show the axial connection option, which would normally accept a banana plug inserted straight in if the opening is conductive and about 4mm wide. I suspect it is as they mention a "variety of wire connectors".

Their only illustrated example show bares wire ends inserted into a small hole drilled through the termial post and the red or black plastic piece tightened down to secure it.

WIRING THE SYSTEM
IMPORTANT: Make sure all equipment is turned off before making any connections.
For speaker connections, use a minimum #16-gauge speaker wire with polarity coding.The side of the wire with a ridge or other coding is usually considered positive polarity (i.e., +).
NOTE: If desired, consult your local Infinity dealer about speaker wire and connection options.
The speakers have coded terminals that accept a variety of wire connectors. The most common connection is shown in Figure 5.
To ensure proper polarity, connect each + terminal on the back of the amplifier or receiver to the respective + (red) terminal on each speaker, as shown in Figure 6. Connect the – (black) terminals in a similar way.
See the owner’s guides that were included with your amplifier, receiver and television to confirm connection procedures.
IMPORTANT: Do not reverse polarities (i.e., + to – or – to +) when making connections. Doing so will cause poor imaging and diminished bass response.

Just clicks no power. Already checked for touching wires and proper cooling. This unit has worked fin in the same location for four years. Any other ideas?


I had a similar 'drop out' problem with my Yamaha RX-V3300.
Problem- Possibly loose speaker connections.
I have banana connections which I unplugged; tightened speaker terminal connections at back of receiver and then reinserted banana speaker connectors- which remedied problem. There is possibly some kind of loose connection either caused by the banana plugs or at speaker connectors at the back of the receiver, which was remedied (i.e. possibly temporarily) by reinserting the banana plugs.
I also previously thought something was wrong with the main on/off power relay which was 'dropping out' and replaced it, but then 'drop out' problem returned a few days later. I reinserted and tightened speaker connectors, which has it working again.

Connecting my vcr to tv/satellite


They are actually called RCA connectors.
There should be RCA jacks on the back of your
VCR and the back of your receiver. They are color coded RED, WHITE, YELLOW.
