Are these easy to install onto bulk speaker wire?

Depends on what type you get. I happen to like the set I got at home depot (no guarantee they'll be there any more, but...) where there are two tiny screws that hold the wire into the plugs. As long as they're not solder ones, they're fairly easy. Of course, if they are solder ones, and you know how to solder, they're fairly easy.

Most of them are fairly easy to install. But, you have to have a little skill.

Good Luck.

Easy to install, however, I prefer bare wire connections.

I have Audioquest CF-BFA Banana Plugs. They are perfect. I recommend it you without hesitation.

I got a package of GLS Audio gold plated clips (BS20) from Orange County Speaker (link in previous thread). I found them to be much classier and better quality than the ones I got from Home Depot. At that quantity, they worked out to be about the same price, too. Highly recomended!

Glad that they worked for you. I suspect that there are many different types by different makers. I installed sets on my speaker wires because I thought that I may be moving things around more often than before.
