A banana plug is mainly used to insert speaker wire coming from an amplifier or receiver directly into the speaker. The banana plug is named after its shape.
It is a slender, but bulging prong that is similar to a banana. However, unlike bananas, the banana plug is not bent, but straight.
Another use for the banana plug is to test electronic equipment – specifically used to terminate patch cords.
