Large 3.5mm jacks

I'm making some custom cables which are going to be used to connect a soundcard to an amp. They need to be 3.5mm stereo jack to 2 phonos. I've got the phono end done no problem using the shark plugs from maplin, the problem is that I can't seem to find any 3.5mm jacks which have a large enough body to acommodate the 4 wires that they need to (a signal and a ground from each phono). Any one have any ideas where I could get some good quality (preferably gold or silver) jacks that would fit the bill?

Cheers

The other option is to get some heatshinking and strip away the bulky outer cable covering. The heatshrink will take up much less room and fit into the smaller plugs more easily.

Cheers I think I'll go with the heatshrink idea, I'm trying to keep everything as clean as possible.

Thanks
