( A loudspeaker transducer binding post ).
After the dramatic sonic improvements introduced
by the Monopole®
the next item on the agenda became the transducer. The tweeter proved exceptionally
difficult to accommodate because most tweeter domes come complete with
their terminals factory fitted. Designing another dedicated terminal for
the tweeter would only introduce one extra unnecessary interface. The woofer
proved to be more easily adaptable. To this end the Transducer Terminal
( WireTail™ ) was designed. Machined from Pure Copper 99.996% Cu
it adds further in creating a direct solderless link from the power amplifier
to the transducer voice coil. Another stunning improvement in clarity and
transparency results from installing the WireTail™ . Unlike other
connector components the WireTail™ are electroplated
with Pure Fine Silver that contains no brightener solution. This
is the purest form of electroplating for silver and delivers a matte finish.
Originally designed for the ATC 235 SC transducer
the W11 Wiretail is easily adapted where lug centres on the transducer
are no greater than 25mm or 1 inch.

All WireTail™ designs are now consolidated
in the W11 WireTail™.
These are used on the chassis of the working transducer.
Have not been happy with the terminals // tags on most
'quality' transducers. These are either brass solder tags or Nickel
plated brass, spring loaded eyelet's.
Either way the commercial terminations on transducer chassis are
Admittedly to do it properly is expensive.
But! the consequence of installing the W11 WireTail™
results in many surprising improvements.
Firstly: the background noise consequent to inferior metallurgy of solder
and spring tags disappears.
Secondly: Music and other information that was masked by such tags becomes
Thirdly: subtleties in artists styles become more evident.
Fourth: Stereo imaging becomes more holographic and more stable.
Fifth: Transient response is greatly increased // Transients are lightening
fast; this due to the excellent electrical conductivity of the Pure Copper
Lobes of the WireTail™. This reduces colouration
markedly further enhancing musical reproduction to the best possible that
the fitted transducer is capable of.
Sixth: Listening becomes more involving; Dynamic range is extended by
reducing induced noise from inferior tags and springed lobes and improved
metallurgy. Impact is closer to the real event: a drum's thwack comes through
with all its intended energy. The subtlety of a recorder or flute sonata
and voice comes through with greater fidelity and truer timbre and character.
Getting rid of noise anywhere in the system, no matter how inconsequential
it may seem, delivers truer and a more faithful reproduction of the recording.
Thence! Hearing is believing!!
