I sell esoteric high-end speaker cables on ebay and I use the Sewell Spade lugs for termination. I find them easy to use and they seem to be built very well. They sound good also as the cables I sell are for the audiophile type where the sound of the cable is very important. When using them, be careful that you don't lose the small screws that secure the conductor and provide a strain relief. Sometimes there is a small amount of material that needs to be cleaned out where the terminals were drilled and tapped, especially if the wire size is large. These are great terminals at a super good price.
I have a few issues with these. First, these will only work properly IMO with either 12 ga or 10 ga wire, with a fairly heavy insulator. Given I don't use 12 ga wire other than for my main speakers, that makes these useless for satellites. Second, they are large, a bit too large. They are impressive in that way, but less useful as there are just too many applications they won't fit the binding post well. Third, as another reviewer said, when tapping the hole for the screw that holds the wire, they didn't clean off the displaced metal and so it's very difficult to insert the wire through the hole unless you clean off the leavings with a drill bit. This isn't sometimes, it's on every one. Finally, the screws that hold the wire are too small and so won't provide as much surface area as would be optimal. This, combined with a wire hold that is even larger than needed for 10 ga wire, is the main reason they aren't appropriate for smaller wire. There simply won't be any purchase for a...
Everybody loves Banana plugs but these little babies have their place in the world too :-)
These were perfect for my needs where the space around my receiver and the in-wall panel was tight that banana plugs were pushing it to stick out.
I did not see any difference in sound quality when using these vs the original banana plugs I had.
These are well designed and sturdy. They do not feel or look cheap. I was able to easily fit 14 gauge or smaller wire.
