Audioquest Husky 2.0M RCA Subwoofer Cable
This strikingly beautiful breed has a delightful temperament combined with
keen intelligence and equally acute independence of spirit. While Huskies are
rarely the best choice for watchdog functions (because of their overwhelming
instinct to run at any and every opportunity), Huskies have an ability to learn
that has been described as “staggering.” The Husky’s natural instincts have
evolved from its historical origins as sled dogs for nomadic Siberian tribes to
become loving and playful family dogs. DNA analysis has found that the Husky is
one of the world’s oldest dog breeds.
SOLID 5% SILVER CONDUCTORS:
Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter.
Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency
applications. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost
exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of
high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver
cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost
effective way of manufacturing very high-quality subwoofer cables.
POLYETHYLENE AIR-TUBE INSULATION:
Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect
circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss).
Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. All of Husky’s
conductors use PE Air-Tube Insulation because air absorbs next to no energy, and
Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. PE Air-Tube
Insulation causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other
DIELECTRIC-BIAS SYSTEM (DBS, US Pat #s 7,126,055 & 7,872,195 B1):
All insulation slows down the signal on the conductor inside. When insulation is
unbiased, it slows down parts of the signal differently, a big problem for very
time-sensitive multi-octave audio. AudioQuest’s DBS creates a strong, stable
electrostatic field which saturates and polarizes (organizes) the molecules of
the insulation. This minimizes both energy storage in the insulation and the
multiple nonlinear time-delays that occur. Sound appears from a surprisingly
black background with unexpected detail and dynamic contrast. The DBS battery
packs will last for years. A test button and LED allow for the occasional
CARBON-BASED 4-LAYER NOISE-DISSIPATION SYSTEM (NDS):
100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from
modulating the equipment’s ground reference requires AQ’s Noise-Dissipation
System. Metal and Carbon-Loaded synthetics prevent most RFI from reaching the
equipment’s ground plane.
The three conductors in “Triple-Balanced” Husky cables ensure that whether
prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the positive and negative signals have equally
low-distortion conducting paths. The 100% coverage shield is never used as an
COLD-WELDED HANGING-SILVER DIRECTLY OVER PURE RED COPPER SYSTEM:
This plug design enables a perfect heat-free connection between cable and plug.
The connection between the plug and conductors is made using AQ’s Cold-Welded
System, which provides a superior connection that ensures that the structural
integrity of the conductor is kept completely intact. The Cold-Welded System
refers to a combination of high pressure at the point of contact and the use of
copper- or silver-impregnated paste. (Husky’s silver conductors get silver
paste.) XLR plugs are also available.
Sometimes there is a hum problem unless the subwoofer and AV receiver (or
surround-sound processor) are attached to each other using a separate wire. If
your system has a hum problem, try attaching the little spade-lug tails to the
metal chassis of the subwoofer amplifier and to the chassis of the sending
component. Usually, this extra wire will not be needed.
