Default Heavy duty PLUGGABLE speaker binding post's!

I scored a large lot of these bizarre but ultra heavy duty speaker binding post's.

These were custom made but never put into production is my understanding. I believe these were made by ODU as they match this page pretty closely.

ODU Single Contacts - Connectors for High-Current Applications - ODU USA

These appear to be Gold Plated and have a removable plug end that is the typical binding post. I have NO idea what these would have been used for or WHY they were built this way. But I have about 1000 of them!

I will be looking for a vendor to buy the lot of them but in the meantime I thought I would see i could share some with YOU! Hurry Hurry!

$10 per set - A set will include 2x nuts, 2x sockets, 2x plugs and 2x binding post type nut.

Discounts for 10 or more sets. contact me for details.

Plus shipping of course and i guess i must say it...Battery not included!

Key Features

  • Up to 1,000,000 mating cycles with Springtac™ contacts
  • Designed for high-current applications
  • Low and constant contact resistance
  • Low and constant mating force

Hi I would like to try 2 pairs. Will send a PM.

Some questions:

- won't one need 2 x nuts on the jack ? One for securing the jack and one for securing spade connectors.

- will 4 mm2 wire fit in the plugs wire hole ?

- or are they meant for soldering the cable (does not seem logical) ?

Good point! I can supply each post with 2 internal nuts. one to secure the jack and one to attach the wire internally.

I'm not sure what that translates into American wire gauge. Sorry, the hole on the inside of the binding post end is rather small. standard sized spade lugs crimped onto a wire will fit the binding post. the end has a banana plug hole.

I am guessing that these were designed to mount to a PCB internally There is no provisions for soldering on either end.

I think these were designed to bolt to a PCB and then extend through an insulating grommet in a chassis is about the only logical way I could see these working.

well the cheapest option is about $18, but the flat rate priority mail box is $20. and for the extra $2 is worth the faster shipping time!
