QED 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. The Profile Subwoofer cable uses design techniques trickled down from our Performance range but in a ultra-compact and flexible design. This cable has a miniature outside diameter of 4mm and is shielded for enhanced signal protection to ensure you get the best from your subwoofer. All QED cables are covered by a lifetime guarantee. 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 and are available in 6 & 10 metre lengths for an additional amount.

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.
