In order to provide maximum sound quality to consumers purchasing high performance speakers for home theater or high-end stereo, Tributaries is offering SP4BW Silver BiWire Speaker Cable.
This ultra-flexible bi-wire contains two multi-stranded 12 gauge and two multi-stranded 14 gauge conductors within a pressure extruded dark blue PVC jacket surrounded by a high-tech mesh.
The conductors have been designed for different purposes — 14 gauge for tweeters and 12 gauge for woofers.
In a bi-wire design, a speaker's connecting terminals are arranged for separate low frequency input and high frequency input. Separating the low frequency and high frequency inputs provides an independent path for the audio signal to the appropriate segments of the speaker's crossover.
Powering these two segments separately results in superior power handling, smoother frequency response, better base response and improved sound staging, said Tributaries.
To provide a smooth transition from the cable jacket to the heat shrink, each end is fitted with a rubber boot. Terminations are available in the company's Banana Plugs or Spade Lugs.
The SP4BW BiWire is available in lengths of 8 feet, 12 feet and 16 feet. Suggested retails range from $300 for an 8-foot pair with BP101, 102 or 103 Banana Plugs, to $650 for a 16-foot pair with DLT10 Locking Banana Plugs.
