So here are my cable lifters that go between my Pass Labs INT-250 and my GoldenEar Triton Reference speakers. I had a local glass artist make them and each one is as much an art piece as functional. Please forgive the wire clutter as I am in the process of upgrading some components.







very 'purdy' !   :D

A tweak that improved the sound:The Enacom Noise Filter (speaker type).
Placed across the speaker terminals (across the tweeter terminals if you bi-wire), I heard an improvement in the critical Upper Midrange/ Lower Treble response.
Sweeter, but with added clarity.
Note: Do not attach this device between the Fidelium and the speaker post. This defeats the purpose of the cable's novel direct interconnect topology.
With my Edison Price terminal posts, I was able to jam the two Enacom leads into it's open top, thus avoiding contacting the Fidelium itself.
If you don't have this capability, I would recommend not doing it.
The Enacoms are pretty cheap on EBAY and as such are worth a shot.

Not sure how you are connecting. Can you share an image?

For instance, some speaker terminals have the option of a lug connection and a banana jack connection.
Connect the Fidelium to the lug connection and the Enacom to the banana jack connection.

Enacom and others are simple RF filters that typically use a cap and resistor across the plus and minus terminals. A inductor might also be part of the filter. Some SS amps have the filter on their speaker outputs also.

Known as a Zobel network, sometimes on the amp sometimes on the speaker.

Just got the rest of my custom made glass cable lifters installed. They work great for these cables.
