Palladium binding posts and banana plugs

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Newbie to the forums.  Long time Klipsch fan (purchased first pair in 1984) but didn't know about the forums.  Found out about them in the various Klipsch Facebook groups.

 

To get to the point...  I recently bought some used Palladium speakers (P-37Fs and P-17Bs).  The center hole in the binding post only seems sized to accommodate the hex wrench that comes with the speakers.  The banana plugs I have do not fit in them.  Are the Palladiums not designed for banana plugs or are there smaller ones that will work with them.  For now, I'm using some Monster Flex Pin connectors.  Those work well enough but I'd prefer to use banana plugs.

 

Thanks.

Be very careful if you use bare wire or spades not to tighten any more than necessary.  It will shear right off in the blink of an eye. It was a pain in the arse to fix on the P39s I had.

wstrickland1 - Thanks for the warning.  I have not had any issues so far with the Monster Flex Pin connectors and I only hand tighten them.

 

Don - There are no caps on the Palladium binding posts.  They have a hex hole in the center for tightening with a hex wrench.  This hex hole does not accommodate the banana plugs that I have.  See the attached picture.
