AudioQuest Boxer Subwoofer Cable
Get More Depth, Harmonics, and Transparency from Your Music: AudioQuest Boxer Subwoofer Cable Features Innovative Technology and Proprietary Noise Dissipation System to Enhance Performance
Turbo-charge the performance of your subwoofer with the AudioQuest's Boxer subwoofer cable and find out just how much depth, harmonics, and transparency you've been missing from your music. Encased in 1.25% high-grade silver, Boxer's solid copper conductors bring vividness and life to lower frequencies that lesser cables leave sounding dull and fuzzy.
And by surrounding the aforementioned conductors with innovative Air Tube Polyethylene insulation, Boxer drastically reduces signal distortion and timing smears, rendering your music and soundtracks with remarkable speed and articulation.
Rest assured that Boxer holds its own against the onslaught of electromagnetic and radio-frequency interference from surrounding equipment and home appliances. Equipped with a handy grounding tail to banish all-too-common hum problems, Boxer also boasts a proprietary carbon-based Noise Dissipation System (NDS) that provides a triple layer of shielding protection, producing significantly blacker backgrounds as well as a much lower noise floor than stock cables.
When you hook up a run of Boxer with its cold welded hanging-silver and red copper termination plugs, you'll understand its double-balanced geometry amounts to more than just techno jargon. Boxer proves itself by eliminating what's been standing between you and the dynamic thrills your sound system has to offer.
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 cables.
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-Based 3-Layer Noise-Dissipation System (NDS)
100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.
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 copper- or silver-impregnated paste. (Boxer's silver conductors get silver paste.)
Sometimes there is a hum problem unless the subwoofer and AV receiver (or surround-sound processor) are attached to each other using a separate wire. If your system has a hum problem, try attaching the little spade-lug tails to the metal chassis of the subwoofer amplifier and to the chassis of the sending component. Usually, this extra wire will not be needed.
