Amplifier Terminal Strips

zingozingo AudiophilePosts: 11,690
I like my new little Hafler P1000 MOSFET amp, but it has terminal strips for the speaker connections whiech is not ideal. Has anyone done a 5-way binding post swap on an amp?

    Yes. Your pics are too fuzzy to get a good look, but it should be possible to do on any amp as long as there is a bit of real estate on the back panel.

    could you unscrew the screws, and then screw in little add-ons for binding posts? that's the kind of thing I'm sure someone makes somewhere.

    Too close to screw 4 binding post if they made such a critter.

    I've seen people fashion their own for vintage McIntosh gear.

    Couldn't someone make some sort of something to space it out though?
    I'll draw my idea later when I have some spare time...

    ^^^^ Micah, someone who is dyslexic may have read your comment this way. :p

    These should work to make them banana plug compatible.

    These look like they would work, at least as a temporary solution.
    Now I'm tempted to grab some for my Lafayette.

    Yeah, I thought the same thing. That may be fine for a quick test, but I wouldn't put it in my rack like that. Particularly if I had a cat that liked to play hide and seek. :p

    It looks like PE doesn't carry them anymore, so I'll look for another source, or maybe smaller spade that fit those terminals.

    Thanks! I never shop on Amazon, but that's probably a huge blind spot I should clearly remove. :)

    I'd be worried about a short set up like that, can you flip every other one over, so it is underneath?
    Very cool, either way. :)

    I was going to put an insulator between them, but flipping them every other is a great idea!
