The 90-degree section of that neutrik plug is split down the middle so I highly doubt for durability's sake that it's held together by the heatshrink alone wink.gif

 

I need to post up my recent cables sometime soon

post #6182 of 13928

looks pretty good, I would probably twist the two cables even more

Hey guys,

 

Quick question!

 

I'm refurbishing my Sextetts right now and I've been told that the drivers are sensitive to heat. 

 

What do you guys do when you solder new cables to drivers? Do you unsolder the older cable completely and solder new wire on the solder tabs? Or do you keep a little bit of the previous wires after trimming the previous wires and solder new wires to the little existing wires so the solder tabs aren't heated?

I recabled some Sextetts a while back. The key is to just be quick with the soldering and dont hold the iron on for too long; just enough to let the solder melt. 

Unsolder the old wire completely, let the drivers cool a bit, tin the ends of the new wires and then solder to the drivers 

 

Hope this helps.

Hmm..that sounds like normal soldering to me. I never exceed 3 seconds on any soldering.

Here's a recent recable of mine.

If you're referring to the headphones, it sure looks like the Denon AH-D2000.

Yup, these are the Denon D2000's.  I repainted the cups with Rust-Oleum hammered dark bronze.  Super easy.

Thanks for the kind words Parrot and Sup biggrin.gif

 

I've been wanting to do a Y-split for a while (each leg stereo), but I'm not sure about the best way to accomplish this with the Canare starquad I have laying around.  Does anyone have an example of such a cable?  I would like to find a metal or plastic housing for the split as I hate the look of heatshrink.
