Product Details

Dayton Audio BPA-38G HD Binding Post Pair Gold

The Dayton Audio BPA-38G heavy-duty binding posts were designed with the audiophile in mind. Quality, 24kt. gold plating assures the highest possible signal transfer and resists harsh environmental conditions that cause performance-robbing corrosion. The BPA-38G binding posts can be used with banana plugs or will accept wire up to 8 gauge, and large diameter knurled heads allow positive finger-tight connections.

An extra long rear bolt (1-1/2") facilitates mounting in speaker cabinets with walls up to 1" thick (3/8" minimum thickness). To install, simply drill a 1/4" hole and gently tap the binding post in place. The knurled shaft will keep the post from turning, and also creates an air-tight fit. Overall length is 2-1/4". Sold in color coded pairs with solder tabs.

Dayton Audio BPA-38G HD Binding Post Pair Gold is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Binding PostI used these Binding Posts for 7 years and for different speaker cabinets. I never had regret about my choice.Only one recommendation I have for the manufacturer - slightly increase the thickness of the nut and the thread pitch.When I made the first installation of these Binding Posts and tried to screw them strongly, I had broken thread on one nut. Therefore don’t screw it too strongly.Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality PostsBought two sets in the last month to assemble my own alternate mixing monitors to alleviate ear fatigue. The posts are solid. The back of my mixing desk faces the recording space and these speakers look as good as my purchased high quality monitors. Very easy to install. Easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snazzy PostsThese have excellent build quality and IMO are perfect for a DIY sub build, I used these for my Parts Express Knock-Down MDF 4.0 cu. ft. Subwoofer Cabinet and I love the look and functionality of them, overall I am very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They look greatI bought these, but I have not had a chance to install them yet. They look really solid and well made. The nuts and the soldering tabs look like they will be very easy to install. The post that goes inside the cabinet is ample long for even very think cabinet walls. The finish is very nice, and will certainly look very high-end on the speakers I am building.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY Binding Posts for wire and/or Banana PlugsI really like these posts, very sturdy and they mount in wood very solid. I also like how they can be wired or use banana plugs or use both at the same time if running wire to another sub. Gold plating is strong and doesn't scar or come off when installing. Tabs are strong and large enough to make soldering easy.

Dayton Audio BPA-38G HD Binding Post Pair Gold

I have Coral BX-1101 (4-way 5 speaker System) speakers that had one of the binding posts pulled out. Will these binding posts work? or can you recommend another post? or other supplier? Thank you.

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?

Asked by: patchbr
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.

Will these work in the Dayton Audio BPP backplate?

Asked by: KevinMc
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?

Asked by: Mikeyo1
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?
