Wich awg did you use for white and for blue/black? How many cables did you use for blue or black? A pic of starting the cable will be nice.

white conductor is not a part of helix geometry

"Some embodiments of the present invention
also comprise drain wires which are not interlacing elements
and which run longitudinally within or adjacent to the helices.
Shielding may also be employed to help reduce noise from external sources."


it is commonly used for grounding, and should be larger in diameter
(easier to braid)

there is 6+6 awg13 conductors
and it is only for heavy loads (amplifiers, welding machines etc )

I hope this helps
