Rocket 44

CL3/FT4 In-Wall Rated Bulk Speaker Cable

Rocket 44 incorporates Perfect-Surface Copper+ into its blend of conductors. PSC+ has fewer grain boundaries, which reduces harshness in the sound. This carefully finessed combination of PSC and PSC+ enables Rocket 44 to deliver a clear and faithful presentation.

Key Features & Technology Explained

  • Solid Conductors Copper

    Solid conductors prevent strand-interaction, a major source of dynamic distortion in cables.

  • PSC and LGC Metal

    A carefully finessed combination of our high-purity Long-Grain Copper and higher-purity Perfect-Surface Copper conductors minimize distortion caused by grain boundaries.

  • Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation

    Alternating layers of metal and carbon-loaded synthetics "shield the shield," minimizing RF noise before it reaches the layer attached to ground.

  • Double Star Quad Geometry

    Double Star-Quad Geometry reduces time-smearing while preserving dynamics, and clarity.

  • Foamed Polyethylene Insulation

    Foamed-Polyethylene's high air content minimizes energy absorption for clearer sound.

  • Directionality

    All conductors controlled for RF-noise directionality.

Description

    Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) and Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) Conductors
    This cable uses a carefully finessed combination of Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC) and extremely high purity Perfect-Surface Copper+ (PSC+) conductors. The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N and other coppers. Extremely high-purity PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor.

    Carbon-Based Noise Dissipation
    This cable's negative conductors are covered with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material reduces radio-frequency garbage being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and improved dimensionality that comes whenever RF interference is reduced in an audio circuit. In addition, a carbon layer damps interaction between positive and negative conductors, and an external Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation System reduces external interference.

    Double Star-Quad Geometry
    The relationship between conductors defines a cable's most basic electrical values (capacitance and inductance). However, even when those variables are kept in reasonably neutral balance, the particular geometric relationship between conductors greatly affects the sound. Star-Quad geometry is not only vastly superior to conductors run in parallel, but also to the same conductors as two twisted pairs.

    Foamed Polyethylene Insulation
    Any solid material adjacent to a conductor is actually part of an imperfect circuit. Wire insulation and circuit board materials all absorb energy. Some of this energy is stored and then released as distortion. This cable, however, uses air-filled Foamed-Polyethylene Insulation on both conductors. Because air absorbs next to no energy and Polyethylene is low-loss and has a benign distortion profile, Foamed-PE, with its high air content, causes much less of the out-of-focus effect common to other materials.
