The Tube Connector
is a binding post replacement that solves all of the problems
associated with traditional binding posts.
it, in the world of high end audio where high quality speaker
cables and internal wires are used, the last thing you want in
the signal path is a large metal bolt for the signal to have to
pass through. And running speaker cables through a hole in the
back of the speaker and directly to the crossover or driver is
not practical as no one wants a permanent and non-removable speaker
cable hanging out of the back of their speakers.
Tube Connector is a low mass high quality Copper tube that will
allow the conductive element of the speaker cable (the wire itself)
to be within .045" to the tip of the internal speaker wire.
Male portion consists of a hollow stud that allows the speaker
cable to be inserted all the way to the tip.
tube connector is essentially a hollow Copper tube. It has a Copper
collar around it that locks it into its outer shell. There is
a laser cut slit in it that runs the length of it and one diagonal
laser cut slit near the collar that allows the Copper tube to
flex and open up as the stud is inserted.
the cutaway view we can see that the tube connector is surrounded
with a flexible layer of high temperature Silicone. It is then
surrounded with a hard polymer outer casing. The flexible Silicone
layer allows the internal Copper tube to increase in diameter
with the insertion of the stud while keeping constant tension
on it to provide for a tight and secure connection. And unlike
the flexible tensioning bends in a typical banana plug, the Electra
Tube Connector never loses tension.
this mounted view (below) we can see how this new patent pending
design allows a very small .045" of distance between the
external speaker cable and the internal speaker wire.
is also super easy and can be done in a fraction of the amount
of time that it takes to install any other available binding posts.

Electra Tube Connector solves a long list of problems associated
with traditional binding posts.
