Set Screw vs Crimp vs Crimp & Solder
Set Screw termination is a good choice for those customers who are not sure if they may need to change the connectors. The set screw termination can be reworked with minimal effort and damage to the cable in the field. Because we use connectors sized to the specific wire gauges the difference in conductivity between the cable strands and the connector is minimal compared to a crimped connection.

Crimping without soldering is our preference. A properly crimped connection will have far lower resistance than a soldered connection. The advantage of a soldered connection is durability but durability is of little concern in a properly assembled cable utilized in a normal environment. Solder is resistive compared to copper. Even the so called Audiophile solders have resistances resulting in effective 13% IACS which is dismal so the addition of solder has adverse effects on resistance. Soldered connections do have the benefit of durability and may be necessary when cables are built for repeated use as they might be in a commercial audio environment. The downside to using a crimped connection is that rework of the cables will require the connector to be cut off resulting in loss of lead length and the connectors can not be reused.

Design Features of the Furez Banana and Spade Connectors
Sized Right: All Furez "Sized Right" speaker cable connectors are designed for specific speaker cable gauges and have varying internal diameters to maximize contact of the speaker wire strands within the bore of the speaker cable connector. When a connector is properly sized to the speaker cable gauge, the resulting connection will be optimized for both conductivity and strength. Sizing of crimped connectors is very important and the connector must be sized to match the wire gauge. When considering a set screw type connector one must recognize the problem with the one size fits all scenario for speaker connectors. When you tighten down the typical set screw the individual strands of the conductors spread out. Many of these strands then do not make intimate contact with the connector which reduces the efficiency of the conductor to connector contact.

Maximized Contact Area: Our TST "Tensioned Split Tube" Banana Plugs are designed with a a split tube design at the top and bottom of the banana plug. These splits in the tube allow the banana plug to conform to the inner shape of the mating binding post for the entire length of insertion. The result of this intimate mating of the TST banana plug to binding post is increased signal transfer efficiency.

Optimized Contact Pressure: The TST "Tensioned Split Tube" Banana Plugs feature a solid color coded silicone elastomeric tensioning element. This tensioning element provides the spring force required to enable the use of soft high conductivity copper. Traditional banana plug designs rely on the inherent spring force of harder low conductivity copper alloys to provide the required contact pressure to make the banana plug connection. Unfortunately, the copper alloys that have sufficient inherent spring tension also suffer from poor conductivity. The simple and effective design approach of the Tensioned Split Tube (TST) Banana allows our connector to be constructed of C14500 Tellurium 93% IACS Copper.

Maximized Signal Conductivity:
   •  Solid Single Piece Conductive Path: The Furez line of speaker wire connectors are designed to have a single continuous conductive path from the wire to the end of the plug. This eliminates the added contact resistance associated with the common multi-piece design.
   •  Truly High Conductive Core Materials: The Furez TST Bananas utilize C14500 Tellurium 93% IACS Copper and the SP series spades utilize C11000 100% IACS Copper which are the highest conductivity coppers available for their respective designs. Materials like C36000 Brass, C54400 Phosphor Bronze, C17500 Beryllium Copper are the typical copper alloys used and all have low conductivities in the range of 19% to 40% IACS. Find out more about Copper Alloys at www.Copper.org
   •  Plating or Lack There of:
          - Bare Copper Non-Plated Connectors: The use of bare non-plated copper connectors provides the natural high conductivity connection of a bare speaker cable termination without the safety hazard of shorting wire strands. Bare electronic grade copper will not turn green or oxidize heavily under normal conditions and some simple handling practices will keep you copper looking and performing quite well for many years.
          - Direct Silver Plated Connectors: The only plating option we currently offer is a 5um thick direct Silver plating without an under layer ensuring the maximum conductivity possible. Silver is the highest conductivity metal at 104% IACS and also has the lowest contact resistance of any metal so why not use it. With proper handling silver plating will out perform any other speaker connector plating.

About the W & WP Series Furez Connectors
The Furez the W & WP series is part of the Furez line of "Sized Right" Speaker connectors that feature a cold weld crimp connection for the most efficient speaker cable connection. Both the W & WP series banana connectors additionally feature 2 opposing solder windows for easy soldering. The difference between the W & WP series is that the WP series features an anodized aluminum protective shell and the W series requires the use of Heat shrink to cover the termination. The TST-W & WP series banana plugs are offered in varying sizes optimized for common speaker cable gauges.

About the SB Series Furez Connectors
The Furez the SB series is part of the Furez line of "Sized Right" Speaker connectors that feature 2 high torque set screws providing the end user an easy and very effective method of connecting their speaker cables. The deep barrel and forward positioned dual set screws allow the insulation of the cable to remain inside the barrel of the connector thus alleviating the issue of exposed bare wire strands while also providing strain relief to ensure the copper conductor contact is not stressed over time. The TST-SB series banana plugs are offered in 3 sizes designed for varying wire gauges and capacities.

About the Furez Inner Cable
The primary design features of the Furez Advanced Series Speaker Cable are the use of multiple gauge stranding within a rope lay design of high strand count 99.997% OFHC C10100 Copper and the use of quality foamed polyethylene insulation (FPE). The design yields a clean balanced sound. The cable jacket and conductor insulation are both made thicker thicker than your typical cable to combat physical damage and to provide long lasting protection from oxidation caused by permeation of atmospheric conditions through the insulating materials.
