AudioQuest Black Lab 3m Subwoofer Cable

Black Lab
A 3 meter subwoofer cable that eliminates strand–interaction distortion with solid, long–grain copper conductors, the AudioQuest Black Lab Subwoofer Cable is ready to take on the challenge of your home theater. Utilizing solid Long–Grain Copper (LGC), the Black Lab delivers a smoother and clearer sound that's superior to other cables that use regular Oxygen–Free High–Conductivity copper. The conducting material in LGC has fewer oxides, less impurities and less grain boundaries for definitively better performance.


Solid conductors eliminate strand–interaction distortion. Black Lab's solid Long–Grain Copper allows a smoother and clearer sound than cables using regular OFHC (Oxygen–Free High–Conductivity) copper. OFHC is a general metal industry specification regarding "loss" without any concern for distortion. LGC has fewer oxides within the conducting material, less impurities, less grain boundaries, and definitively better performance.

Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy (loss). Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. Black Lab uses air–filled Foamed–Polyethylene Insulation on both conductors because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low–loss and has a benign distortion profile. Thanks to all the air in Foamed–PE, it causes much less of the out–of–focus effect common to other materials.

100% shield coverage is easy. Preventing captured RF Interference from modulating the equipment's ground reference requires AQ's Noise–Dissipation System. Noise–Dissipation System prevents a significant amount of RFI from reaching the equipment's ground plane.

Identical + and – conductors prevent the shield being used as an inferior audio conductor.

This plug design allows for a connection devoid of solder, which is a common source of distortion. Because the ground shells are stamped instead of machined, the metal can be chosen for low distortion instead of machinability.

Sometimes there is a hum problem unless the subwoofer and AV receiver (or surround–sound processor) are attached to each other using a separate wire. If your system has a hum problem, try attaching the little spade–lug tails to the metal chassis of the subwoofer amplifier and to the chassis of the sending component. Usually, this extra wire will not be needed.
