The Audioquest Black Lab Sub Cable has been designed specifically for subwoofers and features a unique grouding cable to minimise hum.

Unique grounding cable

In most cases this won't be needed but if you suffer excessive hum from your subwoofer, then the Black Lab should be able to help. By connecting the ground cable to the metal chassis of your sub and the ground on your amp, earth hum problems should be solved.

Solid-core conductors for low distortion
For many years Audioquest has advocated solid-core rather than multi-strand cables. Electrical and magnetic interaction between strands in conventional cables can cause distortion, giving an unnatural edge to the sound and picture. Using Long-Grain Copper, the Audioquest Black Lab gives a cleaner, clearer sound than regular cables using OFHC (Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity) copper, thanks to fewer impurities.

Air-filled foamed-polyethylene insulation
Wire insulation can cause an imperfect signal by absorbing energy and then releasing it as distortion. The Black Lab uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene as air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile. The result is reduced distortion for an even purer sound quality.

Cold-welded, gold-plated plugs
By using a high pressure weld rather than solder, there's less chance of a faulty connection between cable and plug. Not only does this lead to a more reliable connection in the long term but it also ensures low resistance and, hence, low distortion connection for the entire life of the cable.

Treat your subwoofer to a cable that's designed to get the best from it - the Audioquest Black Lab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More "woof" for your sub! A well made cable, I bought this as a punt on account of its built-in grounding cable. Previously I have used co-ax sub cables (including Cambridge and Monster) and had the issue that the active sub would give a loud 'thump' sound if moved for cleaning or repositioning. This happened with my previous Mission sub linked to a pioneer amp, and my current M-3 Mission sub, paired with a Yamaha RX-V673 amp. I grounded both the amp and the sub using the grounding cable, and the problem has disappeared. I would also note the positive grip of the terminal plugs with this cable, which came as a pleasant surprise, as I thought they looked a bit lightweight out of the box. The cable is thinner than previous cables I have used, but you would not know it from the sound, which remains as full if not fuller than before.Its svelte form makes it more flexible and placeable; I am very satisfied with the performance of this cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works As with all cables, its more about personal preference and suitability combined with how good they really are. Well my sub works and it sounds phenomenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dali I'm no audiophile and, quite ashamedly, admit that prior to researching speaker packages recently, pretty much considered that a cable was a cable was a cable! Reading through independent reviews however, it became apparent that this is not the case and that manufacturers put time and effort into developing their cables to ensure that they provide the best possible performance. I bought this subwoofer cable as part of a speaker package and was impressed at the attention to detail with regard to packaging, quality and features. Although I have not needed the grounding cable, the fact that they have been incorporated suggests that the company intend this to be a straight out of the box usable item in all environments and that they have obviously put thought into their design. It comes with a handy 5m cable although if I were to be ever so slightly picky, a 7.5m cable to compete with its competitors would be a nice improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product Product is good a bit pricey but for the £10000 A/V system I am going to put in these items are a must

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again I have most of my cables as AudioQuest (Pearls plus one Forest) as they are solid reliable cable that is viewed in the AV world as a solid performer by all AV installers, AV journalists and AV sales people. The cable is made well and delivers great bass sound. Does what it says in the box. Definitely would recommend it if you are planning to purchase a decent sound to enhance your whole experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sub cable For anyone who has a slightest hum from the subwoofer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Subwoofer Cable Needed a 5m cable as my current one was causing my Onkyo Sub to power down as the signal was loosing strength. Since using this cable the Sub stays on when needed and is delivering the perfect sound. Well worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The cable has great bass extension The cable has great base extension, whilst it has everything there it possibly lacks the ultimate fine detail that other much more expensive cables have. But for the money it is excellent value for what it gives, a very tuneful bass.
