The Monoprice Affinity Series 24k Gold Speaker Banana Plugs are supposed to be a good thing, but the shipping cost makes them a ridiculous proposition.

For the sub cable I would go the Soundpath (SVS) sub cable - good quality and not overly expensive.

(running one into my SB2000)

I would get a Blue Jeans Cable LC-1 subwoofer cable, the best quality cable I've had . Hand made in the USA and absolutely top shelf customer service. The connectors are clones of the Canare RCAP connectors and are excellent quality and give a very solid connection.

No snake oil, ground unicorn horn or pixie dust, just a solid product at an affordable price (due to the extensive shielding - they are not overly flexible though)

I would recommend getting one a bit longer than you need right now, to allow for future placement flexibility. Adding a ft or 2 now will only add a few dollars to the price, but may save you having to buy another later on because it's not long enough.

 

I'm not sure what your budget is for this, so  $75 may seem lot for a subwoofer cable - though compared with some other brands , it's actually a minuscule amount-  but this cable will last a LONG time. I've owned one of their older model cables for well over 10yrs  and I've gone through probably 8-10 subwoofers since then (God help me!) I purchased 3 of the newer models using their LC-1 cable a few years ago and all have been perfect. 

BJC is also excellent to deal with and (IMHO) a great company to support (a small, family run business)

If you can solder... these beryllium copper multi-contact BFAs:

Just under $5ea with free deliver (unfortunately they are only available in batches of five). You can discard the plastic outer covering and simply heat-shrink over the termination for neatness.

 

 

If not, these screw-type BFAs are good:
