ViaBlue™ TS banana plugs establish contact to speaker jacks with a classical laminated system. On a circle are distributed nine small copper leaf springs divided into 40° sections. The diameter of the concentric ring in its fully extended state is 5 mm and in its fully stressed state 4 mm. The contact surface to the speaker jacks is added up from the nine pressure points of the concentric ring.
The ViaBlue™ TS Series was designed to provide a connector ideally suited for every possible connection and jack type. All TS connectors protect against short-circuiting with a transparent insulation bushing. The opening to the cable receiver of the TS plug is 5 mm wide so that cables of up to 8 mm2 can be installed.
Easy assembly without soldering.
Speaker cables can be very easily and comfortably installed in ViaBlue™ TS plugs. To do this, you will need a stripping tool to strip the cable's insulation as well as a screwdriver (hexagon socket 1.5) to fasten the cable in the plug-in connections. The speaker cable should be stripped approx. 8 mm and then plugged tightly into the internal housing of the TS plug-in connectors. This inner part of the TS plug-in connectors narrows in such a way that the influx of air is cut off. In this way, the stranded conductors are protected from oxidation. The cable can be comfortably tightened by the two large fixing screws and therefore has a very strong grip on the plug. Solder is not necessary. In order to protect even better the sensitive stranded conductors of a high-quality speaker cable from possible stripping by the screwing, as well as against oxidation over the long term, it is advisable to use the ViaBlue™ OFC copper crimp sleeves.
