Klipsch Binding Posts Issue

Recommended Posts

I am considering getting a pair of Klipsch 5000f speakers but according to an owner of these who posted a review on Crutchfield he said they could not be connected with banana plugs as the binding posts do not provide for that.Or,could it be that the caps on the rear binding posts need to be simply peeled off to allow for banana plug connections?If so,is there room enough for average size banana plugs or is a smaller pair needed?Similar question for speaker cable thickness.

Welcome to the Forum. I'm sure someone will be along soon to offer some ideas on this.

The caps can normally be popped out of the center of the terminals but are usually pretty stubborn.

 

EDIT, I just found a picture, they'll come out and accept banana plugs.

I'll bet the little caps just need to be popped out.  Not 100% certain but pretty sure.

If you don't ever move stuff around bare wire is best.

I never would have thought of that. That's the equivalent of checking to see if it has gas.

I would put the caps in a zip lock bag and tape them to the back of the speaker for safe keeping.
