ZenStyx Speaker Cables
06/12/11 at 20:17:06
 
Posted this question in the cable support forum, and sent an email to Steve, but haven't gotten any response.

In the ZenStyx's product description it says:

"These cables have the advantage of being able to be run as separate conductors spaced apart so that there is no magnetic interaction between the positive and negative."

What spacing of positive and negative runs should be used to prevent magnetic interaction?

I don't have any true knowledge. . . but it can't be more than just a few inches between the cables. Can it?

I cannot imagine that it should be. I have been thinking about this as well as I start think about exactly where my speakers will go, and how I will run the cables.

Since it's mentioned in the product's description, one would think that the cable would come with some installation instructions about the proper spacing.

I've had the two legs of cables separated by an inch or two, and not (not braided, but just not not touching in part) and I confess I've noticed no particular difference.

If I did my math right, and I usually do, they should be seperated by 4.224" or 107.2896 MM. The magnetic resonance of a average 2.2 Mhz signal is 74 Zbw * wdb. If you think it through, it becomes obvious I don't even have a clue about this and made some shit up to mess with you.

Got an email from Steve, he said - 1 inch spacing is usually adequate at modest power levels.
