Looking for the right connectors for your music equipment? If the answer is yes, you've come to the right place, since we carry all of them here! Regardless what two pieces of gear you're trying to put together, you'll find the right product at Sweetwater.
How do you know which ones to choose? Let's review the form factors and common uses to help you know which one is right for you.
When should you choose banana plugs? Banana plugs are usually seen in pairs, with a red side and a black side. They are the right choice for speakers with these types of connectors.
Why should you opt for an RCA connector? You’ll recognize RCA connectors from the backs of consumer-grade gear, such as DVD players and even turntables. One of their biggest advantages is the low cost, but they're also easier to handle than some of the other types of connectors.
What do you get from using XLR connectors? XLR connectors are usually found on microphone cables and use a 3-pin setup to carry audio and provide grounding.
How about TS/TRS connectors? Commonly referred to as ¼”, you usually see these on a variety of gear, ranging from guitar cables to headphones. TS and TRS are not usually interchangeable, so be sure to check if you need balanced (TRS) or TS (unbalanced).
Speakon connectors are the ideal choice for anyone looking for the right plugs for their professional audio speakers. Designed specifically with this type of gear in mind, they feature locking systems and improved current capabilities. Basically, this means they're a lot harder to accidentally disconnect.
