Recommended loudspeaker cable

Unfortunately we cannot recommend any specific brand of cable to use with any of our loudspeakers and always recommend consulting your local hi-fi dealer for more advice.

Always use the best quality of cable available within your budget. High quality audio signals passing from the amplifier to the loudspeaker are unusual in their demands on the cable. Wide dynamic range and frequency bandwidth information has to coesist with the ability to transmit peak currents of at least 10amps, without incurring any loss or signal impairment. This explains why the sound quality of the information reproduced by the loudspeakers is so dependant on the physical properties of the cables connecting them to the amplifier.

Technically, we recommend two-core cable with cross section area not less than 1.5mm (14 gauge) for cable runs of up to 3 meters. For longer lengths we would suggest that you use cable with a minimum cross sectional area of 2.5mm (12 gauge). We do not recommend the use of braided (Litz) or small diameter coaxial cables as these have a high capacitance that may affect the stability of certain amplifiers.
