Default OCOS connectors?

I acquired a pair of double OCOS speaker cables without ends. I have found info about the 2 (red & black) adapters, but need to know what connectors are used. The cable is terminated with a coaxial male connector & I assume that it is considered to be a 75 ohm connector. If I knew what the connector is I can find the female & build the ends.

I think that things should work the way I expect them to.

For any speaker cable (even the very unusual OCOS cable) the connector is so short that it's Radio Frequency Characteristic Impedance just doesn't matter. But finding a mating connector would be good.

For other readers, 'OCOS' or maybe it's 'ocos' is a very unusual cable as it has a consistent Characteristic Impedance in the audio band. It does it by using a very strange dielectric.
