  • WTB: 2 pairs nice speaker binding posts

    What are some recommended nice speaker binding posts? Does anyone know what the old AV123 speakers used? They had a nice transparent plastic knob covering them that looked really nice..

    The old ufw-10 plate amp cover that I'm stripping down for re-use already has two 0.55" holes (old rca connectors) and six 7/16" (0.4375") holes (old EQ dials), so binding posts to fit those holes would be fantastic..

    thanks,

    I would just check out Parts Express. There's SO MANY different styles/prices you're bound to find some you like.

          I used some of the nicer Dayton branded ones on my last build and they turned out looking pretty trick and worked great.

              For sound quality, consider pure copper, or Electra.

                Thought I'd update the thread-- Due to sheer busy-ness at work, home, and church, it took me about two months to get the subs converted to passive, and then my parents' church borrowed the dual passive subs and my Crate SPA2000 amp for a Christmas performance they were doing.

                I finally got everything home and installed in my room and tuned using RoomEQWizard and my Behringer BFD (DSP1124P) literally the night before all the extended family arrived for the Christmas holiday. I'm at work now but will try to upload REW sweeps later this week. Our Canon S100 camera just died for the second time (dreaded "lens error") last week so I can't upload some photos (sorry Skeeter) until the camera gets repaired. Maybe Best Buy will swap it for the newer S110. :biglaugh:

                Anyway- everything is working well now! Amp is a bit heavy (79lbs) and its fans are a bit loud (planning to replace them), but it's not a show stopper since it's in a cabinet..

                Hitting down to the low 20's now.. Old plate amps would drop off like a rock around 30Hz. :woo:

                  Awesome Dane! Glad to hear you got it all up and running and its out-performing the originals :applause: My father in law has two of the UFW-10's, one from AV123 and one that we built using a spare UFW 500w amp I had. The things are great! I'll forgive you this once for not having pics :biglaugh: but be sure to get them up as soon as possible :D

                    I have upgraded my LS9s and LS center to the Electra Cable tube connector. Danny Richie of GR Research specs these in all his designs now. I can tell you that these do make an audible improvement and are worth every penny.

                      It's not hard to imagine eliminating a complicated junction like a binding post would improve current delivery. Delivering current right now, right away without delay is the name of the game.

                      I've listened to an LS-6, LS-9 and the new Serenity Acoustics Super 7 with the Electra posts. Very nice speakers.
