AudioQuest Folk Hero Series Robin Hood BASS Speaker Cable (Pair)
A 15-gauge PSC+ cable to be used for bass signals only in combination with William Tell ZERO or SILVER cable in a biwire setup
Closely related to AudioQuest's groundbreaking Mythical Creature Series, the Folk Hero Series, comprising two models—Robin Hood and William
Tell—are available with either Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ or Solid Perfect-Surface Silver conductors. While the Mythical Creatures are all-out assaults on the state of the cable art, the Folk Heroes use all of the same technology with fewer conductors.
Building on a solid base of tried and true AudioQuest technologies, the design team of Garth Powell and Bill Low specifically focused on addressing one of the most vexing issues plaguing speaker cable design: the mismatch between the amplifier’s source impedance and the speaker’s load impedance. By eliminating the speaker cable’s characteristic impedance (ZERO Technology), current compression and distortion of the signal/current transient are significantly reduced. The result is dynamic contrast, transient response, and bass slam that are rendered seemingly without effort, because the cable is not electrically impeding the music.
Like the larger-gauge cables of the Mythical Creatures Series, William Tell and Robin Hood can be used in one of two ways: either employing the ZERO model for Full-Range, or by using the ZERO model in combination with a dedicated BASS cable, as a fully optimized BiWire Combination cable. Like their larger siblings, William Tell and Robin Hood also feature our patented common-mode noise-rejection technology. Along with the Mythical Creatures, these latest AudioQuest speaker cables significantly outperform previous technology at controlling and draining radio-frequency noise.
*Due to the way Robin Hood BASS is designed, the REL Subwoofer option is for a single REL subwoofer. If you have stereo REL subs, you must order two cables (Quantity=2). The REL Subwoofer option will be terminated with spades at the amp end.
