    To convey an electrical signal through wire, two conductors are required. In unbalanced circuits, one conductor carries both signal and supplies ground, unlike in balanced connections. Because of this unbalanced circuits are less expensive to produce, but the down side is the cables are susceptible to noise, especially if lengths of over 30 feet are involved.
