X-TubeTM with Polycore Technology - How it Works
- At low fequencies both X-TubeTM and conventional stranded/solid core speaker cable convey signals in a linear way. This is represented by the uniform green colour of the strands shown in the diagram below.
- At higher frequencies, X-TubeTM retains a near-linear signal transfer, whereas the conventional stranded/solid core cable fails effectively to conduct higher frequencies uniformly across the entire conductor area. The diagram shows excess current density at the peiphery (designated in red) and rapidly deteriorating current density (green through to white) towards the centre of the conductor.
The effect of this is to reduce the actual cross sectional area of the cable at 15kHz to less than 75% of that at low frequencies. The result induces distortion and compromises the performance of the cable.
X-TubeTM with Polycore technology exhibits much lower self-inductance and is therefore less affected by this problem. The Polycore reduces loop inductance to levels only achievable by using more costly and difficult to terminate cables.
