Press release

Chord Company is offering factory-quality speaker cable terminations from its dealer network with the introduction of the new ChordOhmic Hex Gun crimping tool, the A/V and CI installers’ new best friend

4th June 2019, Wiltshire: Chord Company is enabling its customers to obtain factory-quality speaker cable terminations from an increasing number of its UK dealers, thanks to the roll-out of the ChordOhmic Hex Gun crimping tool, a precision instrument capable of delivering consistent terminations every time.

The ChordOhmic Hex Gun makes it possible for an expanding group of Chord Company retailers to professionally terminate new speaker cables to factory standards; existing cables can also benefit from the upgrade. All cables are neatly finished with the recently launched ChordOhmic banana or spade plugs, plus the Chord Company ‘trousers’ where specified.

The scheme enables consumers to bypass the production queue at the company’s Wiltshire factory and also negates the need for existing cables to be returned to base for upgrading.

Fully trained and certified to terminate all speaker cables from the wide-ranging portfolio, selected Chord Company retailers can quickly and easily create bespoke lengths (both in-store and on-site) for a wide range of applications. From hi-fi and home cinema installations to comprehensive multi-room CI projects, dealers can now offer ‘just right’ cable lengths that not only offer that bespoke look but save money on unnecessary metreage.

Consumers wishing to obtain factory-quality terminations without the wait are advised to check the availability of the ChordOhmic Hex Gun at their local retailer using Chord Company’s online Dealer Locator tool: https://www.chord.co.uk/dealers/

Comment: This is a great move by Chord Company. Giving access to high-quality cables with bespoke terminations through its network of dealers will definitely boost sales.

Alan Gibb, Chord Company’s managing director said, “Historically, crimping has unfairly been seen as a fast, compromised termination option for cable connectors; conversely, this is the termination standard for military and other high-spec connections. Following a 10-year project, we have optimized our ChordOhmic plugs and silver-plated copper cables to give a far superior long-term connection over our previous soldered connectors.”

  1. Please could you confirm if you need a 5mm hex crimp or would a 5.4mm be suitable?

    • Hi.
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      The aperture we use on the Hex Gun is marked 6mm, if that helps? (see “jaws” photo above)

      Best regards

      Paul
