The Bi-wire /Tri-wire

The Bi-wire /Tri-wireBi-wired conversion. Bi-wiring is always best, for an audio system. Unfortunately, many people own loudspeakers, which are quite capable of accepting Bi-wire cables. But, sadly the loudspeakers are left with metal bridging plates installed. Consequently, the Bi-wired conversion cable was introduced. Also, to take things a step further there are in fact a few companies who offer Tri-wire loudspeakers. The solution is Bi-wire /Tri-wire adapters.

Bi-wire /Tri-wire is it new? The answer is no it is not new but the idea of applying the Bi-wire /Tri-wire adapter certainky is. And, really is a great way to improve your sound

Problems we face

In poorly insulated cables, the copper oxidises and loses conductivity. If you look at copper guttering, you can see how environmental effects (such as air humidity) act on unprotected copper and cause corrosion. As well as this, high-quality insulating material prevents unwanted capacitance.

Cables function as aerials and “mop up” interference. You will be familiar with this from the buzzing that mobile phones cause from loudspeakers. Effective, multi-layer shielding counteracts this. No cable can actually improve the sound or picture on an AV system. A good cable is not the one that gets the most out of a system, but one that loses the least!

Products often come with copper-coated aluminium wires, or conductors manufactured from impure, recycled copper, which significantly reduces the conductivity. For a smooth signal flow, it is important to use pure, oxygen-free copper (OFC) with a high conductivity rating as this is what make the sound!


Often, the potential of an expensively purchased system is wasted because of unsuitable cables. The cables supplied work, but their susceptibility to interference, inadequate material properties and small cross-sections mean that signals suffer losses during transmission. Even with bad tyres, a Ferrari will get you from A to B, but you won’t be getting the performance it is capable of.

The best solution is to buy a cable and try it for youself because you can always upgrade!
