  • The Cable

    Crimson VEE 3 cable is a pseudo-balanced/symmetrical cable design. There are two sets of multi-strand oxygen free copper conductors, one set used for the signal and the other set for the return. The conductors are twisted and are insulated with a low density, low loss polyethylene. Chord use the pseudo-balanced configuration because it carries signals more accurately than a simple coaxial or asymmetrical cable. The conductors are held in place with two vibration damping cotton spacers. Reducing vibration both internally and externally is extremely important to signal quality.

    The conductors and spacers are wrapped with a natural cotton filler before the critical dual-layer shielding is applied. The shield comprises of a high-density braid and an overlapped foil. This combination of shields extends the performance of the shield across a wider bandwidth. The shield is fully floating. The shielding is then surrounded with a soft PVC to further improve mechanical damping and this is then protected with a hard PVC outer layer.

    The Plugs

    The Chord Crimson VEE 3 is fitted with Chord’s custom VEE 3 RCA plug. The new design of the ABS outer shell and the unique gold-plating process applied to the contact areas improves signal transfer across a wider frequency range. The signal return surround provides a secure high-pressure contact with all types of RCA sockets. The centre pin is insulated with PTFE and the design of the plug provides good strain relief without compressing the cable and compromising the performance.

    The design of the Crimson VEE 3, the gauge of its conductors and its highly effective screening means that the Crimson VEE 3 will perform extremely well over long runs with minimal signal loss and interference. These are all the important areas to think about when it comes to subwoofer cable. The Crimson VEE 3 works really and is a cost effective solution when it comes to considering the long runs of cable often needed for subwoofer connections.

    The last entry in our Best Subwoofer Cable category is not really in the same league as the first three, but it still is a very capable interconnect and a bargain. This Mediabridge subwoofer cable uses a single copper conductor with a double shield system consisting of copper and aluminum along the entire jacket. Aluminum keeps the price down, and works well as a shield at lower frequencies (less so at higher frequencies). Gold-plated RCA connectors finish this nice choice for music lovers on a tight budget. And, unlike most subwoofer cables, the Mediabridge Ultra Series is also perfectly suited to being used as a digital audio or video cable. So if you upgrade later, this will still be a useful interconnect.

  • Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality subwoofer cables.

These can also be used for single channel active subwoofer connections. If trying to connect between a digital Coax source then see our range of Digital Coax phono connections.

    HTD Speaker and Subwoofer Cables
    We offer high end speaker cables at half the price of our competition by selling direct to consumers. Make no mistake, our prices are low only because we don't sell through distributors and mass retailers and because we don't employ a monsterously large marketing campaign.
     
    The technology behind great speaker cable is fairly straightforward- in order to send an audio signal from one point to another with minimal signal loss you need: (1) high grade 99.99% Oxygen Free Copper (OFC), (2) an appropriate thickness (gauge), and (3) a high number of individual strands of wire to make up each conductor. All HTD speaker cables include these features.

    We offer clear jacket cable with a very high strand count, high-end cable for bi-wiring Level THREE speakers, UL listed CL3 behind-the-wall speaker cable that includes a foil shield, and special direct-burial cable with zinc-plated copper and a thick double-jacket for outdoor installations.

Prior to the introduction of our LC-1 cable, Canare LV-77S was our recommended subwoofer cable; it has the same shielding as the LC-1, but a larger center conductor and solid dielectric, which gives it higher capacitance. LV-77S is not UL-listed or rated for in-wall use.
