Being able to optimize cables for the desired audio range is the main advantage or bi or tri-wiring,
yet most cable manufacturers are content to use identical cables for bass and treble on their
bi-wired cables. Tri-wired cables available on the market are almost non-existent.
Thirty Years on …
While Whatmough cables today still make use of the technology developed thirty years ago (the
laws of physics do not change), modern developments allowed the use of cables that would
still perform well outside their frequency band. For example, the bass cable still performs well in the
treble, though not quite as well as the treble cable. This allows for a much smoother transition
from bass to mid-range and midrange to treble than in the original design.
Whatmough speaker cables are made from 99.9999% pure oxygen free copper. They are extremely
tightly wound to minimize any resonances that would adversely affect detail and signal
are available as Tri-wired (WC-TW620), bi-wired (WC-BW420) and two single wired cables,
WC-SW210. Whatmough Cables are low capacitance designs which help the amplifier to deliver
their optimum performance, sounding tighter in the bass and more open and airy in the treble.
