Amplify Your Subwoofer With Excellent Subwoofer Cables


Visitors: 352

Your home's subwoofer will not work without subwoofer cables. And, you have to use good subwoofer cables to make your listening experience more pleasurable. Good signal transfer is crucial when choosing subwoofer cables for your home's audio system, because not only will it help deliver crisp audio quality, but it will also protect your audio from possible interferences.


Finding recommended subwoofer cables means understanding the different kinds available in the market. There are currently three kinds of subwoofer cables, and these are:

Oval subwoofer cable - this helps reduce low frequency noise through a small loop. It also produces deep bass sounds to make sounds more realistic.

Hollow oval subwoofer cable - this transmits low frequencies that prevents current bunching and muddy bass sounds. This is ideal for in-wall use.

Sidewinder subwoofer cable - like a coaxial cable, a sidewinder subwoofer cable produces extremely clear sounds, thanks to its center of solid conductors that are all covered by foil shields.


Recommended subwoofer cables should at least have any of the following:

Solid conductors - recommended subwoofer cables have solid conductors to produce clearer sounds with lower frequencies. Solid conductors also prevent distortion.

Conductor material - go for cables that have Long Grain Copper (LGC) instead of those made from Oxygen Free High Conductivity (OFHC) copper. LGC copper produces clearer sounds with lesser impurities compared to OFHC coppers.

Insulating material - pick cables that are made from PVC dielectric, which is resistant from sound distortion. This is better compared to cables with solid covering because solid tends to distort sounds.


Now that you have an idea on recommended subwoofer cables, the next step is to install these cables into your home audio system. If you are not knowledgeable or technical enough to do so, then you should ask for the help of those who are able. Installing is essential to make sure that everything is in place and that all equipment is working properly.
