AudioQuest - Thunderbird Bass w/ Carbon DBS - Speaker Cables (Pair)
AudioQuest's ThunderBird Bass with RF/ND-Tech is an ideal cable for the Bass and Midrange inputs of a Bi-Wirable or Tri-Wireable speaker when used in combination with ThunderBird Zero Full-Range cable on the treble input.
ThunderBird Bass cables are Cold-Welded to AudioQuest’s extremely pure Red Copper Spades or Bananas. The bare copper is submerged in a vat of pure silver instead of being tumbled in a lower-grade solution. AudioQuest speaker breakouts and plug casings are not metal in order to not induce RF Noise into the conductors.
Though a cable’s ground leads are integral to a component’s signal transmission, they also act as an antenna. Thus, they are subject to induced Radio-Frequency (RF) noise. RF noise is a parasitic signal that is typically coupled directly into a system’s most sensitive audio/video circuits. AudioQuest’s RF-on-ground Noise-Dissipation (RF/ND-Tech) greatly reduces resulting distortion and signal masking, yielding unprecedented levels of Noise-Dissipation across the widest bandwidth of radio frequencies possible. AudioQuest’s unique circuit topology uses a common-mode phase-cancelling array, providing linear noise dissipation across the entire length of the cable.
The only complete way to eliminate characteristic-impedance mismatches between a cable and the attached source and load is for the cable not to have any fixed characteristic-impedance value. Zero-Tech accomplishes this by eliminating interaction between the insulation and the cable’s conductors—enabling uncompressed current transfer. All-important transient current is unrestricted, and RF Noise-Dissipation is linearized.
Today’s environment is saturated with radio-frequency noise that is extremely difficult to filter or reject. The frequencies of this noise from satellites, cellular towers, and Bluetooth, etc., are so extremely narrow that a conventional shield, or a series or shunt filter, is wholly inadequate. Much of the low-level signal that carries the harmonics and spatial cues that define high-resolution audio is masked by induced radio-frequency noise. AudioQuest’s comprehensive Linearized Noise-Dissipation System combines multiple shields and a carbon-based linearized resistive network that turns most of this noise into heat.
