A clear performance upgrade is seen with AudioQuest's FT-4 speaker cable which departs the semi-solid geometry of their G2 and G4 cables in favour of solid conductors. A cleaner sound is achieved instead of the harsh and dirty sound apparent on lower quality copper cables. We wholeheartedly recommend the AudioQuest FT-4 cable with quality, more traditional loudspeakers.

The Audioquest FT-4 is constructed with a flat profile ensuring that runs under floors and along walls are kept as discreet as possible yet never compromises the overall audio quality.

Solid Conductors

Solid Conductors

All four of FT-4's conductors are solid. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in a conventional cable is the single greatest source of distortion, often causing a somewhat harsh, dirty and confused sound. Solid conductors are the most important ingredient enabling FT-4's very clear sound. Whether a conductor is solid or stranded, skin-effect is a prime distortion mechanism in speaker cables. FT-4 very simply keeps this effect out of the audio range by using conductor sizes that are below the threshold for audible distortion..

Long Grain Copper

Long Grain Copper

FT-4's LGC conductors allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.

SST (Spread Spectrum Technology)

SST (Spread Spectrum Technology)

Any single size or shape of conductor has a specific distortion profile. Even though radially symmetrical conductors (solid or tubular) have the fewest discontinuities, any conductor of a particular size does have a sonic signature. SST is a method for significantly reducing the awareness of these character flaws by using a precise combination of different size conductors.

Terminations

Terminations

A quality cable demands a quality termination. Stripped Bare wire and even DIY plugs leave the copper conductors exposed to signal-degrading oxygen which will require the cable to be re-terminated over time.
AudioQuest FT-4 Speaker Cable can be specially terminated with AudioQuest's SureGrip BFA Plugs in our workshop here at Audiovisual Online which seals in the copper leaving a nice, neat connection. Alternatively we can apply QED's Airloc terminations or Fisual Surefix bananas or spades which are hand-crimped and then nicely finished with heatshrink. Please select from the options above.
