Interconnects, speaker wire, power cords. Ask the Cable Guys.


Hey Tweaker. Have you tried it? Or are you saying its not optimum with no experience? Its a simple test and nothing bad will happen. See for your self how great it sounds. Sure you can defer to Duster as he is smart guy but live a little and try some things for your self.

And really what gauge wire is inside the speakers? How bout them voice coils?

Some 24g magwire and some sandpaper to strip the insulation will set the op back say $10 or less. Heck I can send him some to try.

FWIW it was a recipe in Allen Wrights cable cookbook. Sure he proposed it for tube amps and efficient speakers like horns but I tried it on my magnepans and pass amp (later the Halo a21 amps) which is precisely what he says not to do. I liked those cables better than my kimber 4tc or my double runs of 4g.

Sure its a super super clean sound and some systems wont jive with that but some will and maybe the OP will dig the clarity. You really need short runs like 8ft or less and that is what the op has.

And I get the "save everyone" mentality. There is an entrenched current, big cable lobby out there. But not only have I tried it on my magnepans but I actually rewired a velo sub internally with the magwire...other inmates replaced their cables with the magwire.

And fwiw this is just a test. If and when the op digs it I can show ways to dress it up to make it practical.
