          We tend to think of cables as just dumb wires that go in and out of our amplifiers, but lately I've come to recognize that our instruments, effects, amps and speakers are all part of a system, rather than discreet unrelated units. Cables are important at every link. Anything which affects a part of that continuous circuit will have an effect on the quality of sound. This seems obvious, but it's surprising how many people don't think that way. I've always used good cables, I thought, on the instrument end. And then I bought some GREAT cables as an experiment. I expected, at best, subtle differences, but got enormous ones. I have no similar comparison for these speaker cables - I got them when I got a new cabinet - but I suspect the principle holds, just to a lower extent because it's further along the signal chain.
          These are big beefy cables. The distinguishing features are the size of the conductors and the heavy duty insulation and connectors. They're made for performing under difficult circumstances. With 12 gauge conductors, each of these cables can easily carry 2400 Watts of power without heating up! If you need more headspace than that, I can't help you... With instrument cables the concern is minimizing the effects of capacitance and (to a minimal extent) inductive reactance. With speaker cables you're more concerned with resistance. These are really some LARGE pipes.
          The connectors and visible parts of the cables are first rate. I haven't taken them apart, so I can't really say what they're like inside, but everything you can see (and hear) from the outside is excellent.
          This is the area in which Live Wire cables really shine. There are no other manufacturers I've found who offer such high quality at such a reasonable price. This is especially true for Live Wire's Elite line of cables, both instrument and speaker. I have better instrument cables, but I haven't found better speaker cables at any price.

          At first glance, I loved the look and feel of these speaker cables. They're made of nice, soft, heavyweight (12-gauge) wire, with equally heavy and high-quality 1/4" plug connectors, but unfortunately, I experienced a number of connectivity issues with them on certain amps and cabs.

          When plugging into certain jacks (both input and output), the 1/4" plugs on these cables would fail to fully travel all the way into the jack before striking the seat of the plug, causing an incomplete connection with no transfer of signal. In other words, before they would 'click' fully into place, the seat of the plug would strike the outside circumference of the jack, and this hasn't happened with my gear using any other brand of speaker cable.

          I can't really explain it - perhaps the shaft length of the plugs themselves are slightly too short, or maybe the tip of the plugs is too rounded after the insulator, I don't know. The added weight of the large and extra heavy metal plugs seemed to make matters even worse, by putting excessive and unnecessary downward pressure on the jack. Anyway, the problem was/is bad enough that I won't be buying these cables again, but your mileage may vary.

              Great cables, I use them with my Mark IV and JVM heads to my cabs. Excellent sound, no hissing or humming. The connectors are worth the money alone.

                  I was surprised with the quality of these cables and I like them. Heavy, well constructed with very good connectors. For a TRS cable, this is one of the best I have had.

                    I like the look of these power cords for hooking up multiple cabinets, and they have a good conductor. However, the sleeve of the plug itself bends very easily and comes loose, as I have two purchased previously, and all they have to do is be stepped on once, and it's very likely to be useless. I have one bent one that still works, but I have to be careful, and I have another bent one that is shorted out, and I have to return to another dealer. I would recommend it, but with the advice that it is rather fragile.

                              The NEUTRIK connectors alone are worth it. These are extremely high quality and I would buy again. The strain reliefs are molded very nicely and the insulation is soft and flexible. Great warranty.
