Plug-In Speaker Bullets (Crystal Series)

The very cool looking Bybee Bullets, handmade to perfection of aluminum, gold, and other special metals, are Jack Bybee’s best efforts and thinking in decades. Easy to install by just attaching the wire spade to the bullet, the integrated banana plug then fits securely into the speaker post. Jack Bybee feels that banana plugs are the best connection device out there, with the lowest distortion. He also thinks that that spades are the worst!
