O.k. I'm looking for a little help here for theose of you who may be more fluent in electrical engineering than I am. I have a dilemma. I have recently left the pro audio field to a part time obsession, and obtained employment working for a consumer audio/video store. I am working as a salesperson, and so far I'm doing quite well. My problem is this: I have people trying to convince me to use $80 cables to connect my subwoofer. They want me to buy BOSE speakers, and subwoofers that are now "omnidirectional" due to advances in technology. :roll: Here's my question. First of all does anyone have some strong math to support the benefits of 15picofarad/foot cable over 50pF for a subwoofer? 10k impedance 300mv line level? I have had two employees tell me of the wonders that "good" cable has done for their subs. I tried the same experiment tonite and it made no difference to me or four other people. Which one of us is crazy? How about cable in general on an under ten foot run? I know in the studio you don't have to get too crazy for such a short run, but we run lower impedance connections and a +4dbv signal. The very different way that consumer audio interacts has got me second guessing what practical experience has taught me. I would like to evangelize my crew and help them to become enlightened in the ways of pure sound, but I lack a good argument. Someone, please help. Steve.
