QED 42 Strand Speaker Cable

QED 42 Strand Speaker Cable is QED’s first ever speaker cable, made up of 42 superior grade oxygen free copper strands.

QED 42 Strand Speaker CableAs QED’s entry-level speaker cable, launched in 1975, QED 42 Strand combines convenience and performance. It is able to deliver performance far beyond its entry level price with detailed high frequencies and precise bass and musicality.

The cable’s figure of 8 construction makes it small enough to fit in the most demanding places, easy to terminate and ideal for most discreet wiring situations. QED 42 Strand speaker cable can be installed in all situations with long cable runs and room to room connections.

Polarity is determined by the discreet ridge running down the length on one side of the cable (ridge can be located by feel if not immediately obvious).

QED 42 Strand speaker cable is available in black and white and can be supplied in any length up to 100m unterminated or fully terminated to your specific requirements (additional charges apply).
