Black Lab uses two identical solid Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductors. Positive and negative conductors must be identical for minimum distortion. A 100% coverage shield insures noise-free performance.
Strand interaction is the greatest single source of cable distortion: Black Lab solid conductors eliminate this problem. The simpler grain structure and fewer impurities within LGC copper significantly reduce distortion compared to normal high-purity copper. Gold-plated high-conductivity brass plugs are attached with specially formulated AQ Solder.
While not common, sometimes there is a hum problem unless the ground of the subwoofer and ground of the receiver (or processor of preamp) are attached to each other. Black Lab includes an additional conductor with spade-lug tails at both ends of the cable. If the system has a hum problem, try attaching the lugs to the metal chassis of the subwoofer amp chassis and to the chassis on the sending end. Normally this extra wire will not be needed.
