The speaker cable that started it all! Launched as QED's first ever speaker cable in 1975 and still in the range today. The Profile 42 Strand stands tall as superb value for money and 'The Go To' entry level speaker cable. 


And that's why we have recommended it here. We understand that not all our customers are as enthusiastic as we are about the finer details. But we also appreciate that you shop with us because you want a better home entertainment experience. Cheap 'figure 8' speaker cable is simply not worth it if you want the best out of your home theatre system. Speaker cable has a direct influence on how well your AV Receiver performs and the budget products have a higher level of impurities. With consideration to both performance and price, we have selected the entry-level speaker cable from British company QED. It combines convenience and for the intended purpose, a high level of quality. The QED Profile 42 Strand is a real upgrade over bell-wire and will deliver good levels of musicality to your system.

Offering amazing value for money combined with class leading performance, QED's 42 Strand speaker cable has been in production since 1975 and remains a stalwart of the range. Continually refined over the years, QED Profile 42 Strand is the perfect choice for use with high quality entry level audio components like the ones we sell here at Audio Trends. Profile 42 Strand uses 'figure 8' configuration which, combined with it's great flexibility and rugged construction, makes it ideal for use in a wide variety of installations. History has shown that 26 metres is usually enough - 6 metres for the front three speakers and 20 metres for the two rear speakers.

Subwoofer Cable

It is rare for any surround sound system to come supplied with speaker cables and even rarer for it to come with a Subwoofer cable. Yes, they come with a power cable, but you need to connect the subwoofer to the receiver with another RCA type cable which has been specially manufactured to just handle the low frequencies. Again we have chosen QED. Quality and value for money are unequalled at this level, so why change? The pack includes a QED subwoofer cable that is 3 metres long.

What You Get

28 metres of QED Profile 42 strand Speaker Cable

1 x 3 metre QED Profile Subwoofer Cable

The History Of QED

In 1973 Bob Abraham and Ian Vine founded QED Audio Products and changed the way people think about hi-fi cables. By the time QED 79 strand was launched in 1978, it wasn’t considered' just another speaker cable' but a serious hi-fi component.

During 1994 QED conducted the most extensive ever scientific investigation into the effects of speaker cable on hi-fi system performance. Read the results in “The Genesis Report”. Hear the results whenever you listen to your favourite music using QED cables.

QED's reputation for innovation and technical excellence is known throughout the world. The latest computer-aided design techniques allow their research and development team to keep pace with technological advances and deliver products that achieve the highest levels of performance and reliability. This is why QED speaker cables are recommended by so many of the world’s leading manufacturers of hi-fi and home theatre equipment.

QED is Europe's number one award winning connectivity brand and has won more prestigious cable awards from ‘What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision’ magazine than any other brand (Awards 1981–2013).
