Dang.. we all think that it's a simple case of removing the plastic cap while in fact the terminal cannot accept banana plug at all..... ::)

Aiya, I already mentioned specifically its a Yamaha RX-V430 liao ma.

SiriuslyCold, possible to get those connectors from LHS?

Just out of curiosity, what problem do you have with using bare wires?

well, for one, most of us - me included - assumed that the RX-Vnnn line of Yamaha receivers would use 5-way binding posts for the speaker terminals (these look like Synthesis' pictures)

secondly, it is a well known quirk of Yamaha's to cover these with a cap when they ship it out of the factory, to prevent cockroaches laying eggs inside, i presume. apparently no one else does it.

so when you said Yamaha RX-V430 no one checked out the picture of the backside... until you said 'square'

you can get the connectors from LHS, or SLS or wherever - i use bare wires for my spring clips on the XR25 though.

1) I dun think that there can be a good connection of a contact point of the clip on a small portion of the barewire. But perhaps for a budget sub, yamaha never tot end users would try using banana plugs or spades for connection, like in normal seperate amp binding posts.

2) Just gotten 3 sets bananaplug-terminated 1810s, each with 2 conductors crimped into a banana plug. If I were to remove the plug and connect it via the default clips, im not sure if i can get a fit it in at all.

Sigh...looks like all efforts gone to waste :(

Feel sorry for all that effort. However, think that you should try with bare wires first. If you feel that you are not satisfied with sound after a couple of weeks (and this is due to wires) then you can try with the plugs.

Use bare wires. IMHO, it is as good, if not better than banana plugs or whatever. ;D
