These are quite impressive. They give around 80 ohms characteristics impedance which still is very high compared to speaker impedance.The above is the snapshot of the capacitance values of the Mogami W3103 speaker cables. I believe they have a nice balance of resistance, inductance and capacitance.
- DC Resistance (20°C): 0.005Ω/m(0.0015Ω/Ft)
- Inductance (1kHz, 20°C) 1-2: 0.6µH/m (0.18µH/Ft)
IME, using the right cable is everything in audio. An inch of bad wire can ruin the entire music experience.I have a fairly limited experience with speaker cables. For the first 3 projects that were single full range driver BLH speakers paired with 2A3 SET amplifier, I used solid core copper cables. They seemed the perfect match to my ears. Focused, natural and full bodied sound.
When I shifted to a 2 way design using a 12 inch bass driver, I felt it sounded better with stranded wire. I used 12 AWG Supra classic cables for external wiring and 14 AWG for internal wiring. Supra cables use tin plated copper. Somewhere I had the feeling that it adds a slight colour to the sound, though for all these years I was liking it.
Now that I am starting a new speaker project, I decided to use stranded but pure copper cables. Mogami cables are known to be absolutely neutral sounding, partly due to their legacy of making cables for Studio applications. I have always used Mogami 2803 RCA interconnects and the speaker cables harmonizes the entire chain.
