Clarus Cable Crimson MKII Bi-Wire Speaker Cable (Pair)
Clarus Crimson audio cables are engineered to provide the ultimate listening experience for discriminating audiophiles. Every cable features an innovative multi-gauge design that uses three different-shaped conductor types - each individually insulated - resulting in superior bass, midrange and high frequencies. In addition to ultra-low-distortion PCOCC, Crimson cables are made with precision-formulated polyethylene (PE) insulation providing low loss, superior imaging and maximum sound definition. No other audiophile-grade cables on the market feature the innovative engineering breakthroughs and enhanced high-end performance of Clarus Crimson cables.
In Bi-wiring, two pairs of speaker cables are run from each channel of an amplifier to a speaker. The cable design is 2- conductors to 4-conductors. At the 4-conductor speaker end, one pair will connect to the high-frequency driver and the other to the low frequency driver of the speaker.
The Clarus bi-wire speaker cables are designed in a flat configuration. In typical round speaker cables the plus and minus are twisted together. Twisting causes phase distortion to the audio signal. In flat bi-wire cable designs the plus and minus conductors are in a parallel configuration. This design eliminates phase distortion and improves sound quality and imaging. Clarus speaker cables are made with PCCC, the purest copper, extruded into three distinctly different optimized conductor types for Bass, Midrange and High-Frequencies. Each conductor type is insulated to minimize inter-conductor interference resulting in an audio signal that is open and transparent with improved clarity, detail and tonal balance. The overall large gauge conductors lower the cable’s resistance and provide higher current capability resulting in an increase in low frequency performance. Lowering the inductance and the resistance makes it easier for the amp to drive the signal down the cable. Sonically, the sound is smooth and fluent as well as more dynamic.
