BAV Cable — Design Notes

(This article consists primarily of a technical piece by Galen Gareis, supplemented by some paragraphs by Kurt Denke, as noted herein by the initials “KD”) BACKGROUND: The development of the ultra-low R, L and C ICONOCLAST™ home studio XLR cables exceeded design expectations and performance numbers reached. The patented use of true air tube dielectrics […]

Speaker Cable Design Brief

Speaker cables are a very different animal than high input impedance interconnecting cables. A speaker cable connects to an extremely inconsistent 2-32 ohm (or even lower and higher!) reactive load created by the speaker. RCA and XLR interconnect cables see a much more consistent and resistive high impedance load making their electrical measurements far easier […]
