If a spade is damaged, you can simply replace it. If you buy a new amplifier or speaker that has different connections, you can simply exchange the existing connector for the one that matches your connection requirement.
These custom-designed connectors have undergone extensive development and field testing to insure that they offer the finest performance attainable, without compromise.
For new STIS v2 terminals (Banana & Combo Spade) –
- Loosen or remove the retaining screw using a hex key.
- Drop the existing connector out and add the new connector, lining up the retaining hole in the connector with the threaded hole on the cable’s STIS socket.
