DIY Cables -- Anyone Here Use Them? - Page 4

post #46 of 48
May I ask a question regarding DIY interconnects?

I built a pair using the Radio Shack magnet wire. There are three spools, 3 different thicknesses. I used the thinnest guage wire. These made me a pair of sweet clean sounding cables. However, the bass is a little uh, thin. Clean, but thin. Would using the thicker wire help?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Strange but true, thinner wire in IC gives better bass due to skin effect. Therefore, the way to get boogie bass is not by using fatter wires. Paralleling thin wires is the way to go. That's why those expensive snaky ICs on the market have hundreds of very thing strands in the center instead of a solid core which will also make ICs too stiff.

Thanks templeboy. I'll cut 100 strands for each channel. Or turn my basement into a sweatshop and spped up the process. Anything for the betterment of sound
