About The AudioQuest Wolf RCA Subwoofer Cable

Bring reference-class realism to your music and soundtracks with AudioQuest's Wolf subwoofer cable. We know you want to hear the staggering force and lightning-fast transients associated with first-rate subs and the good news is that Wolf will deliver the goods because it is made with exceptional materials to deliver extreme focus, clarity, detail and dynamics. Go on. Spoil yourself!

Solid 10% Silver-Plated Copper Conductors: Strand interaction is the single greatest cause of distortion in a cable. Semi-Solid Concentric Packed Conductors avoid many strand-interaction distortion mechanisms. Solid-core conductors offer a complete and compelling solution to this problem. Conductor metal quality is critical for the best cable performance. The conductor surface is the only area of the conductor with 100% current density at all frequencies. The smoothness of the conductor surface is imperative because the surface is a guide rail for the entire energy envelope. The best copper and silver conductor metals have fewer grain boundaries and low oxygen content for low distortion and high performance.

Solid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality subwoofer cables.

FEP Air-Tube Insulation: Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Air, however, absorbs next to no energy, and FEP (a type of Fluoro-Polymer) is the best extrudable solid insulation, absorbing less energy than other materials. The use of FEP Air-Tube insulation, with almost nothing but air around the solid conductors, improves the sound of an audio system's focus and dynamics.

Triple-Balanced Geometry: AudioQuest’s Triple-Balanced Geometry uses a separate ground-reference conductor, so the cable's shield is never used as an inferior conductor. Whether prepared with RCA or XLR plugs, the cable's three conductors ensure that the positive and negative signals have equally superior, low-distortion conducting paths.

Dielectric-Bias System With Radio Frequency Trap: All insulation between two or more conductors is also a dielectric whose properties will affect the integrity of the signal. When the dielectric is unbiased, dielectric-involvement (absorption and non-linear release of energy) causes different amounts of time delay (phase shift) for different frequencies and energy levels, which is a real problem for very time-sensitive multi-octave audio. The inclusion of an RF Trap (developed for AudioQuest’s Niagara Series of power products), ensures that radio-frequency noise will not be induced into the signal conductors from the Dielectric-Bias System field elements. The superior capacitor in the DBS Carbon pack used here optimises the RF rejection capacity of DBS to an even higher level. The difference is subtle but meaningfully audible.

AudioQuest's patented 72v Dielectric Bias System (DBS) puts all of the cables dielectric into a strong, stable electrostatic field which saturates (organises) the molecules of the insulation ... continuously from the time the cable is terminated. This exceptionally simple design uses a wire down the middle of the cable, which is simply an extension of a battery’s anode. This wire is attached to negative (-) of a DBS battery pack, and nothing else. It is not in the signal path and has no interaction with the signal. This DBS technology helps to provide an exceptionally low noise floor which is clearly audible.

Carbon-Based 4-Layer Noise-Dissipation System: It's not so difficult to accomplish 100% shield coverage but actually preventing captured Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise-Dissipation System (NDS). Traditional shield systems typically absorb and then drain noise/RF energy to component ground, modulating and distorting the critical "reference" ground plane, which in turn causes a distortion of the signal. AudioQuest's Noise-Dissipation System’s alternating layers of metal and carbon-loaded synthetics "shield the shield," absorbing and reflecting most of this noise/RF energy before it reaches the layer attached to ground.

Grounding Wire: Sometimes, in your home theatre or stereo system, there can be a hum problem when a subwoofer is connected. If you encounter this hum problem, try attaching the little spade-lug tails to the metal chassis of the subwoofer amplifier and to the chassis of the sending component. Usually, this extra wire will not be needed.

State-Of-The-Art Terminations: Heat is usually used to either solder or resistance weld cables to plugs but this introduces an undesirable intermediary layer. AudioQuest’s Cold-Weld System solves this problem with a superior connection that ensures that the structural integrity of the conductor and plug is kept completely intact without the damaging effect of heat. The conductor and plug being joined is subjected to several tons of pressure resulting in a nearly perfect low-distortion connection. In addition, rather than using the customary phosphor-bronze or beryllium coppers (which are much harder alloys and therefore easier to machine), AudioQuest pushes the art by using high-purity pure copper (not alloy) as the base metal. Pure copper is softer and therefore more difficult to machine, but the sonic results are more than worth the added effort!

AudioQuest also pays special attention to the plating it uses over the high-purity copper base and, because it is a much better conductor, silver is used instead of gold, with the performance actually slightly improving over time with the natural oxidation process of the silver. A jewellery-like shine to plugs is often achieved by using intermediary layers of nickel, however this only diminishes the quality of the termination. At AudioQuest, performance is not compromised for an “eye-candy” appearance. All AudioQuest silver-plated connectors such as those used on the Wolf subwoofer cable are Direct-Silver plated for the least distortion and the best possible performance.

Inspiration: Now if you're interested, please take a look at the animal this cable is named after. The wolf is the largest member of the family Canidae, which includes all large-breed dogs, foxes, and coyotes. Wolves are known for extreme intelligence, a trait that enables them to survive in the wild. Wolves are also famous for their evocative and powerful howl, which they say they use to communicate with other wolves. While wolves are commonly thought of as aggressive and “vicious,” they are generally averse to actual fighting and are, in fact, often quite friendly with other dogs or humans they come into contact with - I don't know about you, but I personally don't want to ever put that to the test! Maybe one day, the wolves and dingoes will be at peace with men. But until that time, I think I'll just buy a second sub and use a couple of the AQ Wolf subwoofer cables to make them rock even more.

About AudioQuest

AudioQuest has been the largest cable supplier to the high-end specialist market for several decades and is sold in over sixty countries. Founder Bill Lowe is especially pleased that this success has been possible despite his insistence that the foundation of the company, and the foundation of AudioQuest marketing, must be the performance of the product and when he visited Audio Trends a couple of years back we were convinced of this by his genuine sincerity. In the audio world, many professionals have learned that it is not always convenient to listen to the products they sell … they might learn something they don’t want to know! Bill has always understood the challenge of basing the existence of AudioQuest on the performance of the product. However, to Bill, this is the only reasonable way to do business and the only acceptable way to combine his passion for music (and all things high performance), with his need to make a living.
