Our take on the Monster Cable® 400sw

by Kristen Schaub
Monster Cable

Monster's 400sw subwoofer cable is designed from the inside out to deliver maximum bass from your movie soundtracks and music. The 400sw's balanced conductors and double shield of foil and copper braiding reject noise and hum for fuller, more natural sound reproduction. The 6-cut 24k gold-plated connectors with split-tip center pins ensure the best contact and corrosion resistance for a lifetime of listening.

Monster 400sw is a mono cable.

Good cable, functions like it should. It's overpriced for a cable, but most of them are. It was convenient to purchase from Crutchfield with other equipment.
Pros:
Works like it should.
Cons:
Over priced.

I was not sure if spending a few extra dollars on a monster cable would be worth the money, but the sound on my subwoofer is too important to my system to chance. The new Monster Cable was of the highest quality and I feel more confident that I am optimizing my system properly.

Monster Cable® 400sw

Written By rbl, Wayne, PA on Monday, August 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The connector of my old sub-woofer cable had snapped and I needed to replace. I received excellent help from the Crutchfield salesperson and chose the Monster Cable. The sound quality has been perfect. I'm very satisfied. Unlike another reviewer I wanted a tight connection so that the cable would not come lose and break like my previous one.

Not to be overrated

Written By Jason, Colorado on Wednesday, August 08, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My buddies all make fun of me for buying "overpriced' wiring while they all shop at monoprice for the cheap stuff. I'll be the first to tell you it's worth the difference for good quality wire. The number of strands in speaker wire matters, the resistance to corrosion matters, my buddies don't get it. This subwoofer cable from Monster is worth having, it won't let you down. The quality of wire isn't quite as important in home audio as car audio, the moisture and heat/cold aren't really a factor, but over time there will be a difference.
Pros:
Best quality wire you're gonna get unless you can custom build your own cables and have the materials.
Cons:
none.

Monster Cable

Written By Kev, Greensboro, NC on Friday, August 26, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The cable seems to be well made and feels very substantial. The ends are a little bigger than I thought they would be, they won't pass through a 1/2" hole, probably needs to be about 3/4" instead.

It took a second to figure out you have to "unscrew" the housing a little to expand the connector. Although after it's on, and you screw it back down and it's very tight, I can see how it would be easy to bend it up trying to force it on.

Also it's a directional cable so you're suppose to use one designated end on the amp and the other on the speaker.

What can I say, it is a cable and does what it is supposed to do.
Overpriced in my opinion. Monster is making a fortune on overpriced
cables and wire but if you need it you buy it.
