AudioQuest Husky Subwoofer Cable
Unleash the Lightning Speed and Wide-Ranging Dynamics of Your High-End Subwoofer: AudioQuest Husky Subwoofer Cable Features Dielectric-Bias System with Radio Frequency Trap
Think the sound of your subwoofer can't get any better? Hook it up to AudioQuest's Husky subwoofer cable and discover the lightning speed and tectonic rumble associated with world-beating systems. Husky's solid 5% silver conductors sweep away the veil left by ordinary cables and reveal the low-level detail and wide-ranging dynamic scale your high-end sub is meant to produce.
Further equipped with technology from AudioQuest's award-winning Niagara power-conditioner line, Husky touts a proprietary Dielectric-Bias System with Radio Frequency Trap that virtually eliminates time-delay anomalies that reduce sonic transparency and stand in the way of convincing, three-dimensional sound.
Husky continues to raise the sonic performance bar with its innovative four-layer carbon-based noise dissipation system (NDS), which effectively shuts down the barrage of electromagnetic noise generated by appliances and the ever-increasing collection of computer-related devices in our homes.
NDS' extra protection enables instruments and sonic effects to emerge from blacker backgrounds with astoundingly palpable presence and impact. And when you consider its distortion-reducing triple-balanced geometry and handy grounding tail that eliminates all-too-common hum problems that plague many residential electrical systems, you'll realize Husky is worthy of its "reference class" designation.
Solid 5% 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.
Dielectric-Bias System (DBS)
All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest's DBS creates a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur.
Sound appears from a surprisingly black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional battery check.
Carbon-Based 4-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.
The three conductors in "Triple-Balanced" Husky cables ensure that whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally low-distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an inferior 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.
