Is it possible for members of the public to by these clamps and the plugs?
Provided you can get a dealer to sell you a set.
Veda distribute them in the UK.
Cheers Richard............got any thoughts on what dealer I should ask??
Dunno to be honest. Best to ask one you get on with so you have more chance of being sold them.
They're not cheap mind.
Best part of a couple hundred pounds last time I looked.
But I think there's been a new crimp tool since.
The Airloc plugs have changed slightly since they were first made available but the original crimp tool is unchanged.
Retro is right in saying they cost the best part of £200 to buy if yuo can find a supplying retailer. Better to get your dealer to terminate your cables for you.
Just worked out the cost of the dealer doing it at £5 a plug
Front 8 @ amp, 8 @ speaker
Centre 2 @ amp, 2 @ speaker
Surround 4 @ amp, 4 @ speaker
Total plugs 28 @ £140 makes the thought of buying the clamp more appealing, especally for what I have in mind for the future
The crimp tool has changed from a pneumatic tool, to a manual style ratchet one which is much easier to use, and i think much cheaper.
I prefer the old style crimp bananas though, the newer ones don't grip as well and look like they're going to fall out all the time. They look nicer mind, and the new spades are good.
