Silver Sonic Q-10 Speaker Cable represents the evolution of DH Labs advanced technical designs and is based upon the same progressive engineering used to develop the popular T-14. This cable features a four conductor, multiple gauge array and is manufactured using advanced winding geometries. This acts to enhance performance and cable transparency by tightly controlling magnetic fields within the cable.
The conductors are DH Labs' proprietary treated silver coated OFC copper. These conductors have an ultra-smooth surface, to provide the highest possible sound quality. The dielectric is pure (PTFE) Teflon in a very precise, pressurized extrusion process. The electrical and physical properties of PTFE make it an ideal dielectric material for speaker cables.
The combination of two 12 gauge and two 14 gauge conductors equates to a 10 gauge cable with an abundance of application flexibility. The cable can be run straight, as an internal bi-wire, or a standard (external) bi-wire. Each of these applications allows the listener to experience the impressive imaging and completely neutral tonal balance, which are a hallmark of the DH Labs cables. The extended bass response one would expect from a 10 gauge cable is surrounded by exemplary background detailing, and a richer, fuller harmonic structure.
Quick note for choosing which bi-wire configuration is right for you: Internal bi-wire is recommended for two-way speakers, external bi-wire is recommended for three-way+ speakers. External bi-wire is essentially a double run of cable, that has two connectors at the amp end, and 4 connectors at the speaker end.
