Here, at Alacrity Audio Limited, we take our music very seriously. As part of this, we’ve examined every step of the hi-fi chain and, though it can’t be said that the loudspeaker cable is an ignored component, we do think that it is tragically misunderstood.
It simply is not sufficient to attempt to lower the impedance between loudspeaker and amplifier to vanishingly low levels, and trying only breaches limits in terms of bulk, taste or costs. Better still to work with the problems and side-step them when they arise.
It is a simple plain statement of fact that when a current is flowing in a conductor, a potential voltage is present, relative to the impedance of the conductor and the current flowing through it. So, what happens when you throw a bass signal down the wire? The current flows down the positive wire (during the +ve part of the waveform)…
