Star Quad Speaker Cable 4 x 16 AWG - Sold by the Foot


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 the center, the opposing magnetic fields are cancelled out. Attenuation of magnetic field radiation is superior when compared to a standard 2-conductor speaker wire.

Our most popular 4 x 16 AWG flexible speaker cable. Perfect choice for all broad spectrum speaker systems and general purpose power amp setups. Good on Bi-Amped applications.
