Default B&O speaker connectors

OK, I don't know if it's more appropriate here or in speakers, but... a friend of mine is trying to replace some female connectors for vintage B&O speakers. The connectors are, of course, nonstandard. Anyone have a clue on where they could be sourced?

Now that you've given me the source, you've screwed yourself out of the tweeters. Besides, these connectors aren't for me- I suspect you know I don't have B&O speakers...

If you're not in a huge rush, I can bring them to ETF in November and give them to a British friend of ours to carry back.

No rush at all on the tweets, still far too busy to do anything with them.

As for the connectors, now you know what they are you should be able to pick them up locally, if not, tell me and I'll put a pair in the post.

Actually, the fellow who needs them is in Germany, so it's his worry, now that you've done the hard work.

Since he is in Germany, the easy solution would be that he go pick them up from Conrad.de

Those plugs are pretty common in europe.

Yup, 2-pin DIN ...

I think I may even have a few male plugs lost in a toolbox, to use with an old Beosystem I had. No female jacks though... Definitely still available in lots of parts stores or catalog order. I've seen them pretty recently, and cheap.

For the male; The middle pin is flat, and the other is round.


Also found one source here:

Industry standard 2-pin DIN. Any electronics shop in Europe should have them... does Germany have the equivalent of Radio Shack? What is unusual is that the speaker wires don't have male connectors on them.
