QED Performance XTC X-TUBE Audio Speaker Cables Terminated 8x Qed Airloc 4mm Plugs (A Pair for two speakers).
Available in Optional or Custom length.
HIGH PERFORMANCE TERMINATION, 8x QED AIRLOC Banana Plugs.
The XTC X-TUBE cable listed is a Pair length of Speakers.
AIRLOC a solder-free, airtight perfect fusion between the two metals of cable and plug. This ‘cold weld’ method allows the cable and plug to offer the optimum signal transfer and therefore, better sound quality. It also reduces contact resistance and ensures perfect long-term performance.
We offer the matching Qed XTC X-TUBE Bi-Wire Link (Speaker Jumpers Cables).

FIVE STAR AWARD WINNING DESIGN FEATURING QED X-TUBE TECHNOLOGY
To overcome the common problems associated with conventional speaker cable geometries – high capacitance and high inductance – QED speaker cables incorporate proprietary technologies such as QED X-Tubetm and QED Aircoretm. However, the one downside of these technological advances is the time it takes to terminate the cables. Because, to perform at their very best, they require a precise termination process.”
• XTC utilizes the same technology as Silver Anniversary X-Tube but with the removal of the silver plating and extra wide conductor spacing it aims at a warmer and rounder sound compared to its more expensive sibling.
• HIGH PERFORMANCE LOW DENSITY POLYETHYLENE DIELECTRIC
• Cuts down on the amount of audio signal energy lost due to cable capacitance
• X-TUBE™ TECHNOLOGY
• At low frequencies both X-TubeTM and conventional stranded/solid core speaker cables convey signals in a linear way. However, at high frequencies, X-TubeTMretains a near-linear signal transfer, whereas the conventional cable fails to conduct uniformly across the entire conductor area. The result is that X-TubeTMdelivers greater fidelity across the audio spectrum which would otherwise be lost in ordinary cables.
• 99.999% OXYGEN FREE COPPER CONDUCTORS
• Provides a low resistance path for the audio signal
• This unique tubular conductor geometry also provides lower flux density within the conductors, which gives improved transparency to the sound.
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.
To take advantage of this design ethos, but in a more conventional format, X-TUBE forms the conductor in the shape of a tube with an inner aircore. This has the same effect as using multiple insulated conductors and ensures that high frequencies are transmitted cleanly, with the added benefit of ease of termination. The unique tubular conductor geometry also provides lower flux density within the conductors, which gives improved transparency to the sound.
The overall result is more high frequency detail, less distortion and greater performance.
