Microfiber is a tightly wound dielectric insulator wrapped around each different group of windings on each conductor. This helps maintain control over the effects of Monster's Bandwidth Balancing design.
Monster's way of compensating for something called "Velocity Propagation" or better known as the skin effect. An analog audio signal passing through a copper cable succumbs to this law of physics in which bass frequencies tend to gravitate towards the center of the cable; higher frequencies are forced to the outer portion of the cable. The higher mass bass frequencies create a magnetic field in the center of the cable while traveling through the conductor, which impedes those lower frequencies. This impedance forces those lower frequencies to arrive at their destiny (the speaker or amp) delayed, which causes a mild distortion in the waveform. Monster utilizes multiple gauge windings to help compensate for this distortion. Large, solid-core copper strands in the center for bass frequencies (containing higher mass) and smaller gauges wrapped around the solid core conductor to delay the mid's and high's ensuring that the entire bandwidth of frequencies arrive in uniform.
This is a specially-designed dielectric tube that runs down the middle of a group of different gauge windings. This helps break up the magnetic field generated from the current flowing through the cable's conductors. We wrap the larger solid-core conductors (the culprit of this magnetic field) around this dialectric for maximum affect.
Monster Locks are an original design concept created by Monster Cable for complete termination flexibility of your speaker cables. Special gold-plated high-performance termination blocks located at the end of each pair of conductors that are threaded. Next, purchase the correct Monster Lock connectors required by your amp and speaker configuration and simply screw them on. If ever the need to change that configuration occurs, you only need to change the connectors without soldering.
Monster's unique turbine design allows for maximum contact pressure, contact points and contact mass, all of which are highly important for signal transfer. This design also adds strength and durability. It is often helpful to turn the connector clockwise, to the right, when plugging in or removing the cable.
Multi-Twist construction is a design where the positive and negative conductors within a cable are tightly twisted together causing any external noise or interference to cancel itself out. This design was originally used by Bell Labs during its infancy to run long lengths of cable throughout the country to cancel out noise.
You probably will not, but if you think that you are experiencing noise problems, check that they are. Cables are directional for shielding purposes only. Should you not see these arrows, remember that the signal flow should go in the same direction of the print on the cable jacket, reading left to right away from the source (source to destination)
This is a dielectric molding that surrounds the conductor inside the jacket to maintain a 75 ohm resistance load within the cable. to keep a perfect 75 ohm load, there must be equal distance between the conductor and outer shield. to do this, we inject thousands of tiny nitrogen bubbles inside the dielectric that provides a walll between the conductor and shield. Maintaining this resistance is paramount for receiving a clear and precise picture.
We use silver plating because is the best conductor for electricity. Newer high-resolution TV's as well as DVD's and other digital sources of video information have an ultra wide bandwidth. To ensure the complete transfer of this ultra-wide bandwidth we chose silver.
