Some speaker cables have a banana plug on one end and a TS connector on the other. Are the banana connections on this tester able to accept this type of connector so you can test this type of speaker cable?
Asked by: Stephen
The banana plug inputs on the unit are specifically made to connect the included probes, which can then be used to test continuity with any type of cable connector.
