Blue Jeans Cable Canare 4S11 Speaker Cable, with Welded Locking Bananas, Bi-Wire Terminations, 10 foot (single cable — for one speaker); Assembled in the USA Description
Blue Jeans Cable Canare 4S11 Speaker Cable, with Welded Banana Plugs, Bi-Wire terminations, 10 footAt Blue Jeans Cable, we were never happy with the conventional methods of attaching speaker cable to banana plugs. Setscrews are fine, but lack pull strength; compression connections are never as strong as they look like they’re going to be; and solder, on large high-mass connectors, is slow going and tends to cause a lot of insulation meltback. Our solution: ultrasonic welding. Our Sonobond Ultrasonic Welder (made in West Chester, PA) welds the copper wire to the brass banana plug body without the excessive heat associated with conventional welding, fusing copper to brass in a tight, strong, low-resistance, reliable connection.Bi-Wired ConfigurationThis cable is made with two bananas at one end and four at the other for bi-wired speaker hookups. If you need this cable in conventional, non-bi-wired configuration, we offer that, too — search our listings here on Amazon.Quality Parts for Quality ConnectionThis cable is made using Canare’s popular 4S11 star-quad speaker cable stock, which contains four 14 AWG wires in a Grey PVC Jacket. To this cable we weld our custom-made weldable banana plugs, designed specifically to maximize weld surface area for high weld strength. These are ‘locking’ banana plugs — the plug end consists of four splines, and advancing the locking collar around the connector spreads these splines, allowing you to tighten the connection once the banana is in the binding post and avoid plugs being accidentally tugged out.Blue Jeans Cable — Professional Cable Assembly in the USAWe assemble these cables at our shop in Seattle, Washington, where we also make a wide variety of quality video, audio and data cables for the home theater and professional markets.
