    Default Best Wall plate hookups

    What are the best wall plate hookups for my LSi's? Banana plugs or spades? Anyone have a good wall plate website? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Wall plate's for speakers usually consist of 5-way binding posts, and those accept both spade/banana plugs. You can also use bare wire if you really wanted, just thought I'd add that for ya.

    Depends on how many times you think you are going to be changing speakers and/or cables around. If it's going to be a lot then I would use bananas

    Here is a place where I buy my wallplates:

    You can see my setup here: http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...0&postcount=17

    I used banana plugs for cable mobility, but these wall plates also accepted spades or bare wires. I bought all wall plates from monoprice.com (http://www.monoprice.com/products/su...09&cp_id=10425).


    Here are a few more pics:
    • Behind TV: using the Monoprice "Recessed Low Voltage Cable Wall Plate WITH Recessed Power", running additional romex from the bottom power outlet so that I can connect the TV's power cable right from behind.

    • Speaker wall plates: notice the front left speaker wall plate: I bought a 3-speaker plate because originally I was thinking about combining the plate for all 3 front speakers. Finally I unscrewed one of the banana-plug port and screwed in the little RCA port for subwoofer that I took out from another 5.1 wall plate. The below picture showed the remaining holes, but later I used some white tape to mask them. It looked prety nice and clean.

    • HDMI - coaxial - 5.1 speaker wall plates on the other side of the wall (the coaxial plates was drilled an additional hole to run cat5e and infrared cable :D):

    Monoprice got great products at great pricing. I really love that site :)
