No, they keep in place two sheets of plastic with the same vents openings as the top metal plate.

Nah they wouldn't create anywhere near enough space for that

EDIT: lol there's a 2nd page now and apolkowski already answered that one :P

That's why we're recommending banana plugs. They plug straight in. Doesn't matter how close the terminals are.

I know, but they are in now, and at the speaker end I see no point, there's plenty of room 'cause it's only 2 (or in the case of Bi-Amp compatible speakers 4) binding posts so like I said before, next time I re-do the amp end of the speaker cable then I will look into it, but that's probably 3 years away

You have to push the banana plugs through the plastic screws. They are "closed" by default, to prevent you from putting mains-connectors into it.

I would never stack anything on top of my receiver. That's the one component where you should make certain that it has sufficient room for cooling. You can ruin your expensive receiver by letting it get too hot.
