Thumbs up Bi-Amp Speaker Cables

6ft bi-amp (quad connectors) pair of 12AWG Furez speakers cables from AV-Outlet. These cables are pretty neat, and a nicely dressed up version of a solid, yet basic design. The cables have a nice jacket, aluminum splitters at the breakout of each end, solid terminations, and wires long enough to reach two different amps; these are what I was bi-amping my Klipsch Forte speakers with. The terminations are copper bananas on the amp end, and copper spades on the speaker ends. I can box them and get them in the mail tomorrow for you!

I've tried, and you can't build a better cable for the same price.

$120 shipped CONUS

About the Furez Speaker Cable
The primary design features of the Furez Advanced Series Speaker Cable are the use of multiple gauge stranding within a rope lay design of high strand count 99.997% OFHC C10100 Copper and the use of quality foamed polyethylene insulation (FPE). The design yields a clean balanced sound. The cable jacket and conductor insulation are both made thicker thicker than your typical cable to combat physical damage and to provide long lasting protection from oxidation caused by permeation of atmospheric conditions through the insulating materials.

About the Furez Connectors
The Furez SP8-SB60 series spade speaker connectors are machined from a single solid piece of the highest conductivity copper possible (C11000 101% IACS) ensuring maximum signal transfer is achieved. The SP8-SB60 spade speaker connector is designed with a deep barrel and forward positioned set screws so the insulation of the cable can remain inside the barrel of the connector thus alleviating the issue of exposed bare wire strands. The use of dual T6 Torx set screws provide very secure attachment of speaker cable.

The Furez TST-SB60 series Tensioned Split Tube Banana Plug Speaker connectors provide optimized contact pressure with maximized contact area utilizing a patent pending design that allows for the use of truly high conductivity copper. This is a achieved by using a solid elastomeric tensioning element. This tensioning element provides the spring force required to enable the use of softer high conductivity copper. The TST-SB60 banana speaker cable plug connector is designed with a deep barrel and forward positioned set screws so the insulation of the cable can remain inside the barrel of the connector thus alleviating the issue of exposed bare wire strands. The use of dual T6 Torx set screws provide very secure attachment of speaker cable.

Both the SP8-SB60 series spade speaker cable connectors and TST-SB60 series banana speaker cable plug connectors are offered without plating or with direct silver plating (App. 106% IACS) to suit a variety of installation requirements. Nickel (App. 24%IACS), Rhodium (App. 39% IACS) and Platinum (16% IACS) are not used in our plating schemes because these low conductivity metals only take away from the electrical performance of the connector while adding cost. Hard metals like rhodium really are only advantageous in connectors that require extreme resistance to abrasion from extensive repeated rubbing which is not typically associated with AV connections. IACS (International Annealed Copper Standard) is the standard by which conductivity of copper alloys and metals are compared.

I just measured the cables and the bodies are about 6ft, but the total length with breakouts is just under 7.5ft; bananas at the amp end and spades at the speaker end.
