Audioquest Irish Red Subwoofer Cable
We’d Like to Introduce Your “Woofer” to One of OursAudioQuest has six new high-performance, low-distortion subwoofer cables that add some serious bite to any home-entertainment system’s bark. The line begins with three models optimized for single-ended applications: Black Lab, Irish Red, and Boxer. Husky, Wolf and Wild Dog share the same Triple-Balanced Geometry as AudioQuest’s Rivers and Cosmic Series analog interconnects, providing a separate ground-reference conductor for balanced applications with XLR plugs, and a lower impedance on ground for single-ended applications using RCA plugs.
While silver-plated copper conductors are sonically disastrous for full-range analog cables (such as speaker cables, or interconnects), their attributes are perfectly suited for high-speed digital applications and limited-bandwidth applications such as subwoofer cables. In subwoofer cables the apparent emphasis of low-frequency transients is most engaging, offering much of the performance of solid 100% silver conductors at a much more affordable price. AQ’s Subwoofer Series starts with Black Lab’s Solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) Conductors, with each successive model adding increasing amounts of silver plate; Wild Dog is the alpha with its Solid 100% Perfect-Surface Silver (PSS) Conductors (PSS is AudioQuest’s best conductor metal).
Other substantial material attributes include the use of Air-Tube Insulation, Carbon-Based Noise- Dissipation System (NDS) and all new Hanging-Silver directly over pure Red Copper plugs in the top four models. What does all this mean? When your woofer and ours get together for a night at the movies (or the symphony), you’ll hear all the power and thunder your sub can deliver with unsurpassed extension, “speed” and clarity.
