Default 12p connectors.

Due to some ongoing health issues I've had an uncompleted 12p project hanging around for some months now.
I am now better placed to finish the project but have just discovered I have managed to loose one of the supplied spade connectors (a red one).
Are original ones available? or if not will a 1/4 inch or 6 mm female connector fit o.k.?

Regards,

gsd.

I should have spares... we never use them. Someone closer probably does too.

What connectors do you use for them? Do you have a preferred alternative?

Cheers,

gsd

We don't use connectors. We solder the wire (solid 24g) directly to the terminals.

I'm not sure I have a steady enough hand/nerve for that any more.

Hi Gsd,
The extra connectors are there to help in situations like yours. Or for those guys who are swopping drivers in/out of cabinets on a regular basis.

Hopefully, local help is at hand (Dave Planet 10). Contact via email if you can't locate a spare.

Thanks
Mark.

Thanks Mark,
I would prefer not to solder so replacements would be good, Are the connectors on the drivers standard .25 males?
I did quite like the look of the originals as they seem to have a larger surface contact area than normal spades but I haven't been able to locate any commercially.

Thanks for that.
If I cant locate the originals then I'm sure ordinary spades will do. I just wasn't
sure if they were a standard size and as I have to replace them what would be the best alternative (after solder)

Regards,

gsd.

Hi G,
The Markaudio extra connectors are 100% custom made along with their colour coded retention blocks. Solder the spade to your cable. To adjust the tension, gently bend the spade until a tight push fit is made.

Dave should have allot of spares (Planet 10)

Thanks
Mark.
