QED SIGNATURE GENESIS Silver Spiral Speaker Cable Terminated
QED Signature GENESIS SILVER SPIRAL speaker cable terminated isn’t just another speaker cable, it’s a high performance audio component!
QED Genesis Silver Spiral, QED’s flagship speaker cable, offers outstanding sonic performance regardless of price. This award winning cable is the result of 40 years’ scientific research and development.
Genesis Silver Spiral is incredibly transparent and detailed and its exceptionally low resistance allows amplifiers to exert outstanding grip and control over the speakers they’re driving, especially at low frequencies.
Nine bunches of silver plated 99.999% oxygen free copper conductors offer up a massive 5.5mm squared conductor cross-sectional area resulting in effortless dynamic reach and a powerful, sustained bass response.
QED Signature Genesis Silver Spiral Speaker Cable Terminated is the ultimate in cable technology, fully optimised by Airloc termination.
AIRLOC Forte Fitted
AIRLOC Forte Forte banana plugs with improved pin section and metal covers are fitted as standard (Airloc spades available), designed to maximise contact area throughout the wide tolerance range found in 4mm amplifier and speaker sockets. This means that the connection remains uniformly tight and with its premium gold-plating, provides optimum sonic performance through time.
Aircore™ Technology Explained
One of the big problems as cable conductor size increases, is how to keep the inductance low. This is vital to reduce cable losses and prevent inaccuracies in the signal transfer process, i.e. distortion. The normal way to do this is to use a number of individually insulated conductors within the cable construction. This method is utilised to great effect in the design of QED’s Genesis Silver Spiral loudspeaker cables.
QED cables above 2.5mm² cross sectional area utilise Aircore™ Technology to obviate the skin effect* by bundling several separately insulated smaller cores together to make up a larger cross-sectional area. If these conductors are arranged around a hollow central core of polyethylene the self inductance exhibited by the cable can be reduced to around half that predicted by calculation.
QED Signature Genesis Silver Spiral speaker cable gives a very open and full sound with reference levels of performance and is a match for even the most esoteric audio systems.
Designed with unique triple concentric spiral geometry, Genesis cable offers incredibly low resistance, capacitance and inductance. The overall result is more high frequency detail, less distortion and greater performance.

Cable is available in different lengths to order and can be fitted with Airloc Forte banana plugs or Airloc spade terminals on request (additional charges apply).
*The skin effect causes high frequencies to be carried more effectively in the outer portion of the conductor thus effectively increasing the cable impedance at those frequencies. By having many smaller individually insulated conductors to add up to a large cross sectional area, more of the available conductor area is utilised at high frequencies. At the same time each individual strand is silver plated to ensure that the resistance at the surface of each conductor is as low as possible.
