Even better! Makes for a good design with these units given they want the internal cable spiraled
Twisted, not spiraled. Small but important difference.
What would that difference be?
twistedtwist (twist)Verb: twist·ed, twist·ing, twists1. To entwine (two or more threads) so as to produce a single strand.spiraledspi·ral (spi'rel)2. a. A three-dimensional curve moving about a central axis; helix.
I am in disbelief why not everyone is using these Speakeron. Looks great
after many dis-connect/re-connect cycles the spring force will diminish, and the connection will suffer
In this specific case, the difference between What you want is two cables tightly twisted together, without any space between them, and with the result pretty much forming a straight line. What you don't want is two separate, individual spirals around a central axis.
Yes (twisted). Basically, think of it this way: for a two wire circuit (AC or DC), at any instant, one wire (say the left) is carrying the outward current and other one (say the right wire) is carrying the (equal) return current, excepting the time when capacitors are charging (storing charge/current). Each loop of the twist emits a small magnetic field (think of a single turn of a simple solenoid or transformer). But the neighboring loop is in the opposite sense - the right/left wires become left/right due to the twist, so the neighboring field has the opposite 'polarity'. These fields will tend to cancel and the equivalent frequency for say a 1 cm twist pitch is about 30GHz, a little outside normal audio.So, twists are very good at rejecting common mode magnetic pick-up and reducing emissions. Spirals won't due this; as stated, twist (criss-cross) each wire around the other.See the attached picture.
I am debating the same possibilities. Monoblock does seem to be a nice way to go, especially if you need long runs to the speakers, but by going stereo you do save some money and avoid duplication on the power supply and case. It's a tough one...I'd be very interested in how to enable the trigger mode.
