Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Solid 1.25% Silver Conductors: Solid conductors eliminate
strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors
are excellent for very high-frequency applications. These signals, being such a
high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As
the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that
of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is
an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality subwoofer
Polyethylene Air-Tube Insulation: Any solid material adjacent to a
conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit
board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then
released as distortion. All of Boxer's conductors use PE Air-Tube Insulation
because air absorbs next to no energy, and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a
benign distortion profile. PE Air-Tube Insulation causes much less of the
out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
Carbon-Base 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS): Metal and
Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment's ground
Double-Balanced Geometry: Electrically separate shield better
preserves integrity of the negative conductor.
Cold-Welded Hanging-Silver Directly Over Pure Red Copper System: This
plug design enables a perfect heat-free connection between cable and plug. The
connection between the plug and conductors is made using AQ's Cold-Welded
System, which provides a superior connection that ensures that the structural
integrity of the conductor is kept completely intact. The Cold-Welded System
refers to a combination of high pressure at the point of contact and the use of
Grounding: If you hear noticeable hum in your system after connecting
your subwoofer, please attach the subwoofer cable's ground leads to your audio
gear. Some audio equipment have a ground (GND) connection on the back-panel, if
not, attach the ground spade lugs to any screw on the equipment chassis of both
the source and the subwoofer. Usually, this wire will not need to be connected.
