Cross section

Solid conductors improve accuracy and clarity

Type 4 cables feature four solid, long-grain copper conductors to ensure highly efficient signal transfer with minimal loss. Solid conductors are more resistant to the electrical and magnetic interference that can affect multi-strand conductor cables, and which causes brittleness in the sound.


Closeup details

Precise cable geometry

This AudioQuest cable uses two 17-gauge and two 20-gauge conductors. This difference in diameter reduces the possibility of distortion caused by any particular conductor's sonic "signature." A specialized spiral arrangement of the four conductors minimizes potential signal interaction, resulting in sound that's clearer and more dynamic.

Features

Overview: This Audioquest Type 4 speaker cable is a single 10' length of speaker cable terminated with silver BFA/Banana plugs on each end for connecting your home theater system's center-channel to your AV receiver.

Conductors:  All four of Type 4's conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the single greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat harsh, dirty and confused sound. Solid conductors are the most important ingredients enabling Type 4's very clear sound. Whether a conductor is solid or stranded, skin-effect is a prime distortion mechanism in speaker cables. Type 4 very simply keeps this effect out of the audio range by using conductor sizes that are below the threshold for audible distortion.

Long-Grain Copper: Type 4's LGC (Long-Grain Copper) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss," without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.

Spiral Construction: The spiral construction of Type 4 allows for significantly better dynamic contrast and information intelligibility than if the same conductors were run in parallel. The specific 4-cross geometry used in Type 4 maximizes this advantage.

SST (Spread Spectrum Technology): SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness of character flaws by using a precise combination of different size conductors. SST has enabled Type 4 to be the biggest possible four conductor cable that avoids audible skin-effect.

Insulation: Since solid conductors do not need hard insulation, they can take advantage of the vibration damping advantage of a softer more flexible insulation.

Terminations: The Type 4 speaker cable is terminated with a pair of silver BFA/Banana plugs on each end. The BFA/Banana compression plug offers more surface contact than spade connectors, and better contact pressure than regular banana plugs.

You can cut and splice them if needed but you can find cheaper options if your going to do that.
