Decided to do some more work on the DIY bookshelf speakers i’ve been working on.  I picked up a set of gold plated binding posts from Amazon.  They are extremely well made and look very professional.

Installation was simple:

  1. Locate the position of the posts and mark.
  2. Drill a 1/4″ hole for each post with a standard drill bit.
  3. Using a piece of wood and hammer, drive the post in until flush.
  4. Secure the post from the inside with the included washers and nuts.

I also picked up a set of gold plated banana plugs to attach the wiring to the posts.  Again i purchased these from Amazon and the fit and finish is excellent.  They match the binding posts perfectly and make a solid, positive connection.  Overall I am extremely satisfied with the parts.  If you would like use them them on your own DIY speaker projects, the links to the posts and banana plugs are below.
