Sometimes, pulling cable can be a real pain! AudioQuest’s new FLX/SLiP series of in-wall speaker cables has been designed to make your life at least a little easier. While there is no perfectly slippery cable, we believe that the materials and shape used for FLX/SLiP are at the forefront, making these the most slippery cables possible.
SLiP 16/4 features Semi-Solid Concentric Packed conductors that reduce harshness and confusion. Long-Grain Copper (LGC) has less grain junctions and lower distortion which preserves clarity and naturlness. SLiP 16/4’s low-Inductance Spiral Geometry minimizes the sound going out-of-focus as length increases. The EasySLiP Minimalist Outer Jacket is UL-Rated for in-wall use (CL3, FT4).
SEMI-SOLID CONCENTRIC PACKED LONG-GRAIN COPPER (LGC) CONDUCTORS
In a conventional multi-strand cable, distortion caused by electrical and magnetic strand interaction is compounded as each strand changes position within the bundle. In an AQ Semi-Solid Concentric Packed cable, strands within the bundle maintain their fixed relationships, significantly reducing distortion. Long-Grain Copper (LGC) allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.
