    Here's something about these Pear cables:

    Frequency Response

    The differences in sound quality that cables make can be both heard and measured. The frequency response of a system is one of the most basic ways to measure the accuracy of a sound system. Although it certainly does not give all of the information about the sound quality of a cable, it does illustrate the basic cable accuracy. An ideal system would have a frequency response that was completely flat from 20 Hz to 20kHz. That would mean that the system was able to play all frequencies, from low bass to high pitch symbols, without any distortion or decrease in volume.

    The graph shown here is an example that gives a direct comparison between the frequency response of two audio systems that are identical except for the cables. As can be clearly seen, the system using the Pear Cable (depicted in dark green) shows greatly extended frequency response. When we say that our cables are more accurate, we actually mean it, and can prove it.

    By allowing a virtually flat frequency response all the way to 20 kHz, the Comice Cables used in this test preserve the harmonic information of the original recording. When this system is compared side by side in listening tests, the difference is obvious. The "Other Cables" sound much harsher and tinny. Pear Cables on the other hand will sound far more natural, with an infinitely improved soundstage, because they are more accurate.

    The bottom line is that if the sound never gets to the speakers, the quality of the rest of your system will not matter. Pear Cables allow your system to reach its full potential.

    System Specifications

    So what exactly is the comparison depicted on the graph?

    The frequency response comparison has been specifically designed to be as fair of a comparison as possible. The setup is a 4 channel audio system that uses a cd player, a pair of 2-channel amps, and 2 pairs of coaxial 5.25" speakers. 2 channels are hooked up with our competitors cable, and 2 channels are hooked up with our Comice Cable.

    The sets of cable are all identical in length and gauge. The Pear Cable side utilizes Comice Silver Interconnects, Comice Speaker Cable, and Comice Power Cable. The "Other Cable" is major name brand "high quality" cable. The interconnect pairs are both 5 meters long and utilize shielded twisted pair configurations. The speaker cables are all 14 foot long 12 gauge runs. The "Other Cable" speaker cable is a standard 12 gauge zip design, whereas the Comice Speaker Cable is a 12 gauge cable utilizing a unique 6 conductor configuration. Finally, the amplifiers are both hooked up using 2 foot runs of 8 gauge power wire.

    The measurements were taken with a digital storage oscilloscope at the speaker terminals. Because this system utilizes just 5.25" coaxial speakers, the low frequency roll-off can clearly be seen in both cases, but this has nothing to do with the cables. This is due to the fact that the system was not designed to play low frequency bass, and cuts that information out.

    One final important note is that the frequency response of cables will not, of course, give all the information about how they will sound. However, it will demonstrate the basic accuracy of the cables. Other factors such as cable vibration, noise, etc. will not show up in a frequency response plot, but are still important. Pear Cables are designed to deal with all of these factors.

    The electrons are supposed to pass on the surface of the wire as opposed to the core so I understand that the same gauge of wire with more strands theoretically should have less resistence, but can this make a difference and how does this make a difference in the end result of speaker sound?

    Gold is a better conductor, but at some point you will have to go from copper to gold, How does it make a difference going from gold to copper at a banana or at the post, sooner or later there is going to be a connection between gold and copper.

    I don't have a concrete opinion one way or the other, just looking for a technical reason and not a opinion swayed by bling appeal.

    I will say that when I asked my brother, (who has a rediculous amount of expirience and education with electronics) without going into a long winded reply told me to use 14 gauge stranded copper, didn't matter if it was lamp cord or some fancy pants "audio" cord.
    In an analog system, the quality of the conductor (and thus signal loss, interference, etc.) makes a big difference. Not so much in a digital system so long as the transmission standard's minimum requirement is met. Thus, in an analog system, 18ga gold wire vs 18ga copper wire with the same exact construction, insulators, etc, will make a difference. In a digital system, such as say a data network, I won't purchase anything beyond the minimum design for the maximum data throughput (current or planned) for my system. Therefore, if I was wiring an insurance office for gig-copper and I never thought I'd need more than that, I might only get Cat 5e. However, if I was wiring a computer graphics shop, I'd go with Cat 6e or fiber or something, because I'm always going to push the envelope of the data rate.

    Perhaps a better example: I might spend a lot on a certain brand of copper cables for my SDA SRS 1.2 TL's, but I wouldn't spend a lot on a HDMI or digital optical audio cable so long as they're certified to meet the minimum transport standard. Those MONSTER "silver" and "gold" HDMI cables are the biggest rip-offs going...after all, it's a digital standard!

    Thanks Fellas for keeping this thread so informative and respectful. I suppose that I'm a total noob compared to you guys and I arrived here via a Google search asking if speaker wire makes a difference. So, just to show you guys how great a respectful debate can be, I feel like I have learned a good bit from this thread and I am glad to see that even with all the technical knowledge passed around, it seems both sides are comfortable with the views of the other side.
    So, that said, I'm wondering if you guys can help me decide whether to spend money on good wire. My system was purchased in 1998 from a local store that is respected as a shop where audiophiles can go to get things better than what is typically available at big box stores. I spent about $3500 I think it was for a Pioneer Elite tuner, a set of Solid Solutions surround speakers (4 speakers, a center channel, and a woofer), and other items that have since been retired like Sennheiser wireless headphones, a tape deck, and a cd carousel. Now I just use my iphone and a DVD player and the tuner & speakers. I have my first home now, and I can finally crank my music without annoying anyone downstairs.
    A few problems though, I have a permanent ringing in my ears from a few too many concerts and an afternoon of skeet shooting in which I forgot to wear ear protection. My dad was an Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor trained at Johns Hopkins, and he was really mad about the shooting day, he said I said significant high frequency hearing loss, which was a bummer. All my life I had meticulously protected my hearing then one day of shooting combined with a few too many Van Halen concerts and here I am with hearing damage. Plus, I'm 46 and am starting to notice that it's getting harder for me to hear things in general.
    I never have been very satisfied with my system, it seems like I have to turn it up pretty loud to be able to hear any complexity in the music, (and the Sennheiser headphones were a complete waste of money, I think my cats would have a hard time hearing the music from them, the volume just didn't get anywhere near loud enough). But, I went about a year without turning on the system when I lived with my ex girlfriend, and when I set the system up after that, the surround never really has worked right. I can't seem to get the rear speakers to function properly, they always seem much lower in volume than the front, no matter how much I fiddle with the settings. That was the case right out of the box, but after the year of not being turned on, it is much worse. Sometimes they do work well, other times barely at all.
    So, after reading these posts, I am wondering if my speaker wire might be an issue. I left my wire in my last place since it was hung in such a way that it was painted over, and if I had removed it, it would have left stripes. So now I am shopping for speaker wire and was thinking of running the wires through the ceiling and walls. But considering I am house-broke, have hearing damage and a so-so system, what do you guys think I should do? I think even the home improvement center cheap stuff would cost a hundred bucks, plus I don't where I would get wire that might be better than what I can get at a local big box store, but still kind of entry level.
    Thanks for any and all opinions and tips!
    John

    Welcome to club polk.

    What wire are you using today ?

    As long as its approperiate gauge for the lenght of your runs you will be fine for your system.

    IMO to tell the difference with cables your system needs to be revealing. If you decide you want to try something not to expensive I suggest Canare 4S11 Cable at bluejeanscable.com or a used pair of AudioQuest Type 4s ($75 8' pair).

    You can use a Radio SHack SPL meter to level match your speakers manually.
    Speakers: SDA-1C (most all the goodies)

    Nope, we were just informed by you..
    Old house old wire old room, new house new wire new room different sound of course..
    Personally I think it was the spilled blood on the cable that affected it sonically, lol

I gave it a good 2 months and I finally decided to try the Midnight again. It took me a freakin' hour to change the bananas. It's like wrestling an anaconda for crying out loud. I stabbed myself with the screwdriver several times, lost a lot of blood and muttered lots of nasty things under my breath, but wow what a change. Anybody that says speaker cable can't make a difference is seriously uninformed. I don't know...maybe it's just the blood loss affecting me.

    From what you mention, I would tend not to think so. Upgraded cables, while they *can* and will make a positive change [given the right circumstances], will not correct any rear channel deficiencies. The home improvement stuff would be on par with what you currently have....unless they are oxidized beyond recovery.

    OK, thanks for the info everyone. It sounds like my system really isn't at a level that wire could make much of a difference. I'm only running wire maybe 15 feet at the most so I suppose I'll just get some affordable wire for now.
    Thanks,
    John

    LOL. What is the filler? Kitty litter? Nope, there is none.

    Some people get into oxide free. Well, copper oxide does not conduct well. If it were in standard wire, then the resistance would be higher and that is measurable.

    Sorry, the only difference between wire is resistance, stranded vs. solid, gauge. #16 stranded gauge is fine unless your speaker wires are exceptionally long.

    And don't forget about all that wire inside the speaker (the speaker coil). And the crossover...

    OK, don't believe me? Then try a double-blind test yourself. But it has to be blind, or your expectations will influence what you "hear". In every test ever done with speaker wire, when the tester did not know what was being tested, the listener could not find the difference. ABX would be better, but that requires special equipment.

    OK, I know I will never convince you, but I feel better.

    That's an outright lie and just goes to show that you don't know what you're talking about.

    So, what cables have you actually tried in your rig?

    There are cables that sound different. They also measure differently. Whether that difference is preferred is another question.

    It's the same for any other component: Make it different then market that difference.

    I wonder what's going to happen when the wireless standards congeal and you no longer have to worry about L/C/R and gauge in some installations.

    Then it will be all about the quality of the wi/fi signal and receiver..

    So has anyone ever tried this stuff as speaker wire?

    I just ordered some for the hell of it to try out and see if I notice any diff over 16 gauge I'm using now. I'll be cutting it in half so it'll only be 9 foot runs to my fronts. I'll probably notice a difference just because I want to. lol

    You can get equal, or better, 12 gauge at the hardware store.

    I had a mixture of cheapo 14 and 16 gauge wire in my my HT, and I decided to clean it up. I bought 100 feet of stranded, twisted copper 12 gauge at Home Depot and spent a Saturday afternoon cutting exact lengths to each speaker, and I upgraded the speaker (LSi15s) jumpers with it. Turned it on and let it warm up. That night when I watched a movie I knew it sounded better. That was the point where I started to realize maybe speaker wire does make a difference.

    Now I am a complete convert to speaker wire, inter-connects, and power cords. I cannot say it enough. Better cables, and power, make better music. Assuming you aren't deaf.

    Dang! Sounds like someone's trying to use data transmission specs from a T1 line! Bridgetap?? Really!!
    How many KF are we talking? How far from the source,or load for that matter??
    Alot of those fancy words dont apply to audio cable!
    If i had to guess,the most critical thing would be connections,and surface area of the connection.
    Just my 2 cents. :)
