Speaker wire connection question

hey all

Ive finnally got around to setting up my new amp and speakers after moving house and need to know something.

Can the wire attached to speaker be bare and the end that goes into the amp have banana plugs ? 

Or do both ends need to have the same ? probably a silly question  ROFL

Thanks all

Joe

I really don't want to this to sound patronising, but what exactly did you think the problem would be if only one end has plugs on.

Just wondering!

I have absolutely no answer for that  Smile

When it comes to me and technology anything is possible.

He's probably read here that different banana plugs can sound different. So by that logic, if you only had them on one end it may make a difference.

It's obviously complete ballcocks but I can understand why he asked.

Leaving your speaker wire bare on both ends would be the best solution.
