Dayton Audio BPA-38G HD Binding Post Pair Gold
I found this is slightly attracted by magnetic. (I know nut and washer is made of metal, I'm saying body and solder tab). Commonly, these connectors are made of copper or brass. And none of two are non-magnetic. What material is used for this item?
The Dayton Audio BPA-38G Binding Posts are indeed made from brass. Your question lead me to "Google" the question "is brass magnetic" and I found the interesting topic of the Lenz Effect.To paraphrase: A magnet passing by brass induces a current into the brass. The induced current creates a magnetic field around the brass. You feel the magnetic field around the brass interacting with the magnetic field of your magnet.

What are the dimensions of the hex base located just past the speaker wire hole in the picture? Edge dimension and width/thickness would help.
The hex is 11mm from flat edge to flat edge and 3mm thick.

Will these work in the Dayton Audio BPP backplate?
Unfortunately no, these are only designed to be mounted into a 1/4" diameter hole in the cabinet material.

What size is the threaded part of the post? I want to use this with ring terminals. Will 1/4" ring terminals work?
I can answer half your question! I used crimp 1/4 ring connectors for mine and they worked very well. I found it helpful to put a little weak threadlock so the nut wouldn't back off, but the ring connector fits perfectly. I actually used Elmers glue rather than a "real" threadlocker and it has worked perfectly for the last 6 months. The threadlocker probably wouldn't be necessary on applications that won't shakes around as much as my TC Sounds sub box. The second part of your question I cannot answer without measuring, save for telling you it's slightly smaller than 1/4" to as to facilitate sliding into the 1/4" hole in front of the part that grips, but still fits the ring connector snugly. Maybe 7/32ths?
