I am designing a PCB board in EasyEDA for a DIY audio amp. I have searched in several places to find the proper technical name of this speaker connector but I could not find it.

I searched in Mouser and LCSC with the following keywords (speaker clip, spring clip, speaker connector, speaker terminal, binding post, spade connector) but I could not find anything related to this picture.

spring speaker connector

I want to find a proper component for EasyEDA or Eagle so that I know the correct dimensions on the PCB.

However on Amazon or AliExpress I can find by typing speaker spring connector.

Does anyone knows the correct name so that I can find a component and use it?

This is Amazon link in case someone needs it.

    \$\begingroup\$ Buy one, then measure it yourself. Otherwise, a frequent comment here is "no datasheet, no sale!" \$\endgroup\$ – Peter Bennett Mar 19 at 21:32
  • \$\begingroup\$ While not exactly the same thing, this is the same type of connector and the link may be of use. \$\endgroup\$ – Hearth Mar 19 at 21:32

  • \$\begingroup\$ @PeterBennett I have one at my disposal, but I don't have accurate measurement tools. I will use the datasheet drawing that was linked by brhans. Thanks \$\endgroup\$ – Omar Zanhour Mar 19 at 22:07

They are called terminal blocks with quick connects, or connector barier strip blocks or speaker terminal blocks.

Search for this on digikey: CONN BARRIER SPKR STRIP

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks for pointing out digikey site. I found a corresponding datasheet drawing that I can use to extract exact measurements. \$\endgroup\$ – Omar Zanhour Mar 19 at 22:08
