“Bass Enhancement Speaker Cable” is yet another figment of an advertising department’s imagination.

It is not possible to enhance bass frequencies using loudspeaker cable, irrespective of the conductor cross-sectional-area (CSA).

The best value loudspeaker cable I have come across is this [2.5 mm² CSA] from TLC:

79 Strand Twin Fig 8 Speaker Cable

cheers mate
the description for that should read ' wont hold your bass back as much as thinner cables ' lol

Was after bi-wire specific cable mate

I wasnt sold on the 'bass enhancement' more the style as looks like my old gale but unless my maths are wrong 3x 0.5 is only 1.5 csa which isnt much?

I think this is equivalent to your old cable: Cambridge Audio SYMPHONY BI-WIRE | Speaker Cable Per Metre | Richer Sounds

This? Gale XL160-2 bi-wire speaker cable. 4 metres x 2 | eBay UK

This? Although the thickness of the wires it says mm and not mm2 so it's quite hard to work out what the overall mm2 would be. Fisual Dualcon Bass Enhancement Bi-Wire Speaker Cable: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
