On my last project I used Speakon from Neutrik and really like them. Solid, pro grade, connectivity.

Best

Best performance possible?? Solder the speaker wires directly.. with associated inconveniences .. But not that big a problem :-)
Next best and only a bit more expensive is to use Copper or Brass bolts as DIY speaker posts. Not impress your friends pretty though.
Save the $$ subsequently saved for music ?

I have come to just plain not using binding posts any more. I went back to barrier strips. I just tin my leads. I no longer use fancy wire either.

I tested speakon once and now I laugh whenever I see someone have to fiddle with binding posts =)

They are just too convenient not to use.

The best connector is no connector. Just clean wire and compress. The fewer connections, the better.

WBT has some very nice crimp sleeves for this (..though they need a good pair of "crimps", but it doesn't have to be WBT's though it should be very similar). Multi-strand works better with crimps, but you can use multiple runs of higher gauge wire.

If using copper wire use the copper sleeve, if silver (or plated silver), use the silver sleeve.

WBT has a better line of compression binding posts, but that end's up creating several connections - which isn't nearly as good.

I've given up on Vampire and Cardas copper posts and gone mostly to Speakon.
