It's not particularly feasible to use banana plugs with the QS series; they do stick out. Bare wire is a (slightly) more reliable connection, anyway...

It sounds like I should just install the banana clips on the receiver end. That is the only one that takes a long time.

Amen to that, brother. That's how I've got it; bananas on the receiver, bare wire on the speakers.

What banana's are you using? $7 a pair looks pricy to me.

I'm liking these $4 ones, dual, less work. I really don't think gold matters.

Make sure the receiver will take "dual".... sometimes the spacing isn't right!

I'm using these which I got at Radio Shack:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think those are crimping banana clips. There is heatshrinking around the metal crimping part, which you...crimp.

Oh, Dan...

I mean the heatshrink bit. I know those are crimping or screw type.

Oh, my point was that when I saw them in the store, crimping things usually always have some sort of plastic covering or "heatshrink" included.

Like here

But yes, it looks very nice.

in case anyone doesn't know, you can use banana plugs on QS-8s if you use the Full Metal Brackets. those'll give you enough clearance. i'm not sure about the QS-4s though...
