The SP series of Tara Labs cables Extreme Audio Systems and Extreme Performance Cables with Low Inductance specifically for speakers or amplifiers which require additional inductance in a speaker cable.

In addition to inductance, TARA Labs SP model speaker cables are also designed for audio systems that are inherently bright or strident in their sound. They offer a controlled bandwidth by being more forgiving with glare or stridency.

At TARA Labs, the major design goal for speaker cables is to reduce the inductance in the cable. However, there are some high-end amplifiers that need to 'see' some level of inductance (L) in the speaker cable. When the low damping factor of certain amplifiers is connected with (ultra-low inductance) TARA Labs speaker cables, the output of some high-end loudspeakers becomes audibly variable at different frequencies.

The phenomenon is readily apparent, heard as bass that is soft and low in amplitude, sometimes together with high frequencies that are too smooth or rolled-off. Basically, the resistance in the loudspeaker cable should be ultra-low, and the inductance (L) in the cable needs to be low but sufficient to provide a load to certain amplifiers. There is no ideal value for (L). It varies from system to system, just as impedance varies with frequency in most loudspeakers.

The loudspeaker cables carry much higher signal voltage and current into a non-linear impedance (the loudspeaker) ... so the reactive load of the loudspeaker can be difficult for some amplifiers to drive... and the all-important damping factor of the amplifier changes from amplifier to amplifier.


The Air series and Air-tube technology of TARA Labs has been at the forefront of audio cable design for more than twenty years. The Air Forte is a high-performance and highly affordable speaker cable. Each channel is comprised of two separate large Teflon tubes. Each Teflon tube is helixed with 24 RSC Gen 2 conductors, making a total of 48 conductors per channel. This speaker cable takes full advantage of air dielectric design principles.

Features

  • BSM (1/4" spades or bananas)
  • 10+ gauge conductor runs
  • SAOF-8N copper conductors
  • Each Teflon tube is helixed with 24 RSC Gen 2 conductors
  • Neutral & revealing
  • Natural midrange and vocal frequencies
  • Tight and articulate bass frequencies
  • Linear and extended high frequencies
