Ecosse 'The Sub Ultra' Subwoofer Interconnect
The 'ECOSSE-Sub' is our exciting new entry-level subwoofer interconnect cable, designed to offer a significant upgrade in such systems where supplied cables are inferior, mass-produced sub (sic)-standard. Although this is our entry-level subwoofer cable it is not to be confused with the vastly inferior similarly priced products offered by most of our competitors
The signal conductor of this coaxial cable is a rope-lay weave of Ultra-Hi Purity-OFC™ with a dielectric insulator of low-loss Foamed Polyethylene, renowned for its lack of sonic signature. The double screen and return conductor is 100% coverage Aluminium/Mylar foil plus a close-lapped Ultra-Hi Purity-OFC™ braid. A low microphony, soft PVC jacket protects the cable from the environment.
This cable is perfectly at home in Hi-Fi or AV systems where sound quality from the basic subwoofer cables supplied leaves much to be desired. Immediately you will perceive greater dynamics coupled with a smoother low-end frequency response not available with inferior interconnects.
Meanwhile, the superior quality 'Sub Ultra' uses similar construction but introduces to the mix, our multi-award winning Monocrystal™ copper conductor material available for the first time in a high quality, low-cost sub interconnect, again with a dielectric insulator of low-loss Foamed Polyethylene, renowned for its lack of sonic signature. The double screen and return conductor is 100% coverage Aluminium/Mylar foil plus a close-lapped Ultra-Hi Purity-OFC™ copper braid. A low microphony, soft PVC jacket protects the cable from the environment.
The Ecosse Sub Ultra’s high quality direct gold-plated brass RCA plugs are the same as the plugs used in Ecosse's multi award-winning Composer Interconnect and offer far superior screening and signal transmission to those cheap and nasty RCA's usually fitted to the supplied leads-and unfortunately offered by many of our competitors on their far far more expensive cables.
For the ultimate low frequency experience however you must chose The Sub Ultima based on our award winning symmetric / balanced Baton Mk11 Interconnect-which can be terminated in MACH1 RCA OR XLR plugs. Its flexibility and durability makes it perfect for long and bendy runs.
Construction-wise, The Sub Ultima comprises UHP-OFC (Ultra High Purity Oxygen-Free Copper, plated in UHP-OFS™ (Ultra High Purity Oxygen-Free Silver-since silver has a 10% gain in conductance compared to copper, a copper wire plated with silver will have less signal loss especially at longer lengths) spirally wound around a PE (polyethylene) tube with a primary dielectric of gas-foamed low-density polyethylene (LDFPE).
Each conductor assembly has a continuous foil shield and drain wire. Isohelix™ is our patented technology for ensuring not only that the signal and return conductors always maintain a precise relationship to each other, but also that externally induced resonance (microphony) is entirely dissipated within its structure, thus fully isolating the conductors from the outside world. A further continuous foil shield and drain wraps the encapsulation before sheathing in soft PVC.
