Technical Note

Four-conductor Configuration Minimizes Noise

Speaker cable must accommodate relatively high signal levels, typically tens to hundreds of watts of RMS power. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) can radiate from these speaker lines directly into adjacent low voltage cables (i.e. microphone, video, lines, etc.). Canare solves this problem by using a 4-conductor “Star Quad” configuration in all of our 4S-series speaker cables. Because every conductor is located the same distance from center, the opposing magnetic fields are cancelled out. Attenuation of magnetic field radiation is superior when compared to a standard 2-conductor speaker wire.

Selecting the Right Speaker Cable

Always try to keep speaker cables as short as possible and select cable models that offer a higher damping factor; 20-50 for music (i.e. connect sound) and 10-20 for speech (i.e. sport stadiums).
The greater the damping factor (DF), the better the ability to control speaker excursion to create sharp, clear quality in the low end frequency range

As the above formula shows, a higher conductor resistance causes a lower damping factor, which prevents even top quality power amps from performing at peak optimum levels.
