AIRLOCTM is QED’s award winning loudspeaker cable termination method using specialist equipment.
Using the latest AirlocTM technology, this AirlocTM ABS Wide Spade is the ideal speaker termination to ensure you get the best from your speaker cables. This spade has a dual opening for connection with speaker terminals up to 6mm and 8mm wide.
AirlocTM is a form of cold weld system that can be used to permanently attach QED banana plugs or spade terminals to QED's entire range of speaker cables.
One of the main reasons for choosing a QED speaker cable is the superior d.c. resistance characteristics offered by their exclusive use of 99.999% oxygen free copper conductors. It seems a shame then to ruin all this attention to detail by neglecting the most vulnerable area of the speaker cable chain - that of the physical interface between cable and amplifier or speaker terminals.
By using a cold weld crimp type termination AirlocTM plugs squash the conductors and plug together to improve contact area and reduce resistance.
