Question Speaker Cable


Novice Member
Hi I'm considering upgrading my speaker cable on my shortlist is the QED XT40 and possibly the Audioquest Rocket 22 which is a little more expensive. I would need jumper cables too.

You could add Van Damme Blue to your shortlist - less than £3 per metre for 2x2.5mm, a little more for 2x4mm if that floats your boat.

Some may say (mostly cable vendors) that cable does alter sound quality, but there is no tangible evidence to back that up.

It's not for me to tell you how to spend your money, but spending more than a few quid per metre is a waste.

I had some think copper coated stuff and upgraded it to thick 4mm ofc and there was no noticeable difference in sound.

I was expecting one as well

What is the actual cable you have at the moment?
As above there is no point spending a lot of cable and unless you have really thin bell wire over a long length at the moment the cable you have may well be good enough.

Cable - as above once you have a suitable gauge of cable that is it!

Bi-amp - do you have an additional power Amp?
