  1. Wire guage thickness through binding posts

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hey all I have Klipsch RF82s, RC052, RS42s, and RS62s The models probably don't really matter but does anybody know if the holes in the Klipsch speaker binding posts are capable of passing through 10 gauge bare wire? Right now I'm running a measly 16 AWG. My surrounds need 35 ft lengths...
  2. Sheared off Maelstrom 21 Binding post

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Just like the title says, I was installing the driver and I sheared off one of the positive binding posts. I've emailed Kevin, but I was wondering if anyone had any of the blown ones laying around for spare parts before he gets back to me. I'd be willing to compensate for time and quick shipping.
  3. Binding Post Alternative??

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    If there is one thing I'm installing a lot of in my theater build....it's speaker wire. Binding post wall plates and banana plugs are going to be quite expensive. Banana plugs alone are about 1.5$ a piece which will be at least 65$ in banana plugs alone for my theater. Binding posts wall...

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    So i bought some 14 AWG bare wires and it seems like its too thick for the binding posts... Do you think I would have to resort to buying pin or banana connectors? Thanks. I'll post up pics when I'm done installing my PC setup (my hard drive died last night! Talk about bad luck... :hissyfit:)
  6. Multiple metal binding post?

    DIY Speakers
    I think I'm going with the Cardas Patented Binding Post. Here is the question why would I use the Copper/Rhodium Silver plate when I have read articles that mixing metals can cause problems. My XO parts are going to be Clarity SA caps, Sidewinder and Sledgehammer inductors. I think they are all...
  7. Heavy duty binding posts for subwoofer.

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hey guys, Probably like you, I like overkill. I'm checking out binding post options. I remember seeing some time ago someone had really large binding posts. I think the base was 2"x5" and each post was 1" diameter. I can't seem to find the link anymore. Anybody have any idea what I'm...
  8. CMC binding posts

    DIY Speakers
    I found these to be not terribly expensive, so I was wondering what the opinions of CMC connectors in general, and their copper binding posts specifically, are. Thanks

    I hope this is the right place. Can anyone tell me the purpose of having 2 pair of 5 way binding post? What is a 5 way binding post? If I have a speaker cable that (of course has -/+) banana clip at receiver output, however when it gets to the speaker it splits off with 2+ and 2-, why? Surely...

    Silly question I imagine, but is there much, if any, difference in the myriad of binding posts available for purchase? I am doing a subwoofer with 3/4 BBirch. I was going to use neutrik but am thinking of keeping it simple and use a quality binding post sans binding post plate. It seems you...

    Quick question.. Do the IB (18's in my case) have the industry-standard 3/4" spacing on the terminals for banana plugs, or should I use separate plugs for each? I'm making up yet another Monoprice order, and my subs won't be here until later in the week... edit - yes, the standard 3/4" spacing.
