Down to the Wire
The reason wireless speakers have swooped onto the scene is obvious. Unfortunately, wireless systems can be impractical for many reasons or just plain expensive. Wrestling with speaker wire can be the most imposing part of setting up a home theater surround system. You don’t have to be tackling an extensive 7.1 set-up to be faced with the question of where the cables should go and how they should be connected. Let us ease your mind. It isn’t as complicated as it seems and you certainly don’t have to be stuck with the world’s largest cord mound right in the middle of your living room.
Connect the Dots
Vanco’s WP-4P-BIND binding post wall plate helps you banish the mess by providing an easy, attractive interface for running your wires through the wall. Binding posts, like spring clips, are one style of connecting speaker wire to a device, source, or jack. They use a red and a black color to identify the positive and negative terminals. They are mainly used with banana plugs but most, like these, can also be connected to bare wire. They can easily fit speaker wire up to 12 AWG and they do not require any type of soldering for a secure connection. The gold-plated connectors help pass along seamless, quality sound.
Each speaker requires one red and one black connection, so this wall plate is compatible with four speakers. Installing and connecting the WP-4P-BIND is straightforward and quick. The wall plate can attach directly to a single gang box or low voltage bracket, but the décor insert can also be removed and swapped into a larger or pre-existing décor face plate. This gives you nearly endless possibilities for customization and opens the door for hassle-free expansion or upgrades in the future.
