Bloody cat knocked one of my loudspeakers (Wharfedale Diamond 9.4) over this morning causing the terminals to snap off....

Apart from ebay - anyone know a good supplier for

Quality terminals that will take banana plugs and spades....

No - was just thinking of a quick fast and reasonable cheap solution to get me up and running again.

The other alternative is to involve the insurance company - but that might drag out a bit....

To be fair he did use the word quality. To me Maplin are for quick fixes if the good stuff isn't close to hand and frankly bizarre stuff nobody else sells.

I wonder why they don't do this internally?

They do..........most speakers are solderd at the terminals only internally , but crimped wire and push fit connectors at the speaker cones mostly inside.

A lot of the top end cables etc are screw/crimped ..........according to 'them that know best' it's meant to make a better connection (signal wise).......so i've heard anyway :D

^^^^ - the reasoning behind this is that the solder used to join the two metals forms a very weak diode so rogers the audio signal .... but then solid state amplifies have loads of these connections wherever an IC, transistor, diode, resistifier, capacitator etc are soldered onto a PCB .... so it does make you wonder.
