Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

This isn't a sound argument.

There's a difference between carrier components and working components. The speaker cable is a necessary evil. It shouldn't contribute anything to the task at hand and must simply do as little damage as possible as we move the speaker away from the amplifier.

The wire in a driver forms an electrical component and it does work. We don't expect to find an unscathed signal at the other end of it; we expect to find ground (usually). As such, it is chosen for completely different properties and it's already factored into the potential performance of the speaker.

What you can complain about is the few feet of hook-up wire in the speaker, though.
