Hi I am bringing life back to this thread lol. Need help with cables. I have been MIA and have not been following anything for a couple of years now.
I have a 7.1 system and will be upgrading to a 7.2 . I am adding a second Sub25 next month. Problem is the cable I used with my first sub I am having a difficult finding a second cable for the second sub.
I use Ultralink Platinum SUBMKll specs are as follows
Tri-GaugeTM, Time-AlignedTM directionally balanced twisted-pair conductors
High-density double-shielding (aluminum Mylar®️ foil + 98% copper braid)
Cryogenically-treated, ultra-high purity, laboratory-grade 6N pure copper
Precision machined, patented Vacuum Spring-Lock®️ RCA connectors with PTFE insulation and 24K direct gold-plated contacts
Ultra-low capacitance PTFE dielectric insulation.
People will say use a $30 cable and I will be fine but I did that and got back feed on the cable and made my SUB sound like a bomb went off one day. I took it in to service to have a look it was all good. Paradigm service tech said only use high end cables and not the cheap ones.
I get cables at cost but not sure what to use as the second cable and I don't want to spend a ton of money. A couple hundred or less would be great. I am currently looking at audioquest, xlo, kimbercable, if there are other ones I can look at that have same or similar specs please let me know.
Can't wait to add my second ParadigSub25 to my system. Even my speaker cables are ultralink platinum cables.
