The Carbon 18XL speaker cable features a braided construction, a non-twisted parallel straight run of conductors and eight 19.5AWG conductors, braided around an inner microwave-cured neoprene core
Situated within the core of both the positive and negative braids, a run of non-twisted 14.5AWG VariStrand copper conductors are employed. The combining of these two geometries within the single speaker cable apparently aids noise rejection, damping and DC resistance.
A layer of electrostatically dissipative carbon doped polymer, between the copper conductors and Teflon dielectric, “…reduces mechanically induced noise and improves conductivity,” said the company. The polymer fills the spaces between the strands helping to maintain the geometry.
WBT-0610Cu bananas are fitted as standard.
