DetailsA subwoofer provides a majority of the ultra-low frequencies within a Hi-Fi or Home Cinema system. A standard woofer in a speaker would not be able to produce the low frequencies of that of a subwoofer. Although a powerful subwoofer promises to deliver ‘booming’ and ‘thudding’ bass, it can often be an understatement for sound that can be dull, powdery or just numb. It is surprising to learn that bass also requires detail, just like treble does. However, with bass, you need a fast response in order to reproduce sounds accurately without being exaggerated or ‘fluffy’. A good quality cable is an ideal investment to get the best out of your subwoofer. Thankfully, Audioquest has recognised this by developing a range of various subwoofer interconnects. One of these is the Audioquest Sub-1. SUB-1 uses three solid 2.5% Silver conductors inside PE Air Tubes. Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion. PE Air Tubes minimize information smearing caused by any solid or foam insulation. Three conductors insure optimum performance, single-ended (RCA plugs) or balanced (XLR plugs). A 100% coverage shield insures noise-free performance. Silver-plated plugs are welded to Sub-1 using 8,000 amperes. Silver-Plated Copper (SPC) always provides superior performance for video and digital audio. Unfortunately, when used for full range analog audio, the discontinuity of plating silver over copper causes high frequencies to sound edgy and harsh. However, when used only for subwoofer frequencies, SPC's "artificial edge" actually enhances the articulation and intelligibility of low frequency information. AudioQuest instructs that you do not use Sub-1 as a full range audio cable.
