ViaBlue TS Spades 6 mm, 2 pairs. High end Speaker spade lugs for DIY cables and replacement of broken or inferior plugs.
4 TS Banana connectors in all.
ViaBlue TS spades are screwed on to speaker jacks and thus establish constant firm contact between speaker cables and terminals. There are two different spades available with different sized prongs where the gap distance of the respective prongs varies between 6 mm and 8 mm. This model is 6mm.
The ViaBlue TS Series was designed to provide a connector ideally suited for every possible connection and jack type. All TS connectors protect against short-circuiting with a transparent insulation bushing. The opening to the cable receiver of the TS plug is 5 mm wide so that cables of up to 8 mm2 can be installed.
To select the appropriate TS plug-in connections, it is helpful to download the data sheet. When printed out, the drawings are represented on a 1:1 scale with respect to the original size.
Speaker cables can be very easily and comfortably installed in ViaBlue TS plugs. To do this, you will need a stripping tool to strip the cable's insulation as well as a screwdriver (hexagon socket 1.5) to fasten the cable in the plug-in connections.
The speaker cable should be stripped approx. 8 mm and then plugged tightly into the internal housing of the TS plug-in connectors. This inner part of the TS plug-in connectors narrows in such a way that the influx of air is cut off. In this way, the stranded conductors are protected from oxidation. The cable can be comfortably tightened by the two large fixing screws and therefore has a very strong grip on the plug. Solder is not necessary.
In order to protect even better the sensitive stranded conductors of a high-quality speaker cable from possible stripping by the screwing, as well as against oxidation over the long term, it is advisable to use the ViaBlue OFC copper crimp sleeves.
