Most Speaker Cables are made for looks, and/or to over achieve in one non essential specification or another as a marketing ploy. Ours are simply made to last as long as possible while performing at the best level possible for the widest variety of applications. We also have Bulk Speaker Cable and Speaker Connectors.
Perhaps you are looking for Pro Audio Speakon Cables and Instrument Amp Speaker Cables?
Why our cables are better:
Most of our cables use crimp technology on all conductors so that the wires will not oxidize, strands won't break, etc. We use Viablue or WBT Crimp sleeve "ferrules" on all of our Canare 4S11 cables. This gives you a termination that lasts with no degradation over the life of the cable.
There are basically two ways to "terminate" (connect) a speaker cable to the speakers and amplifier/Receiver:
1) Connect with the bare strands of wire.
2) Use a connector of some sort. Most receivers and speakers will accept banana connectors, spades or bare wire. A banana connector works very well on the amplifier/receiver side since it allows an easy connection in the tightly spaced area.
We believe Properly terminated cables will perform better since they will have less power loss - therefore better sound, and the elimination of oxidation as a factor.
What wire Gauge is enough?
It depends on Speaker impedance, length of wire and how much you want to heat up your room! Want a better answer? Here's a link to Roger Russell's Speaker Cable History Page.
* email TheCustomShop: for completely customized cables. We can custom crimp or solder a wide variety of WBT, Audioquest Bananas, Spade Lugs or other connectors.
