Hi,

 

I'm looking at some speaker cables and wondering why some speaker cables use a dielectric which reduces the total gauge? Surely more wires would be better than seperating each one, I mean they start and end joined together anyway.

 

Has anyone found they sound better or know the science behind it? Or is it just a raught?

 

Regards, Byron

Thanks, that was very insightful but kind of opens up another question. Wouldn't each strand of wire in a gauge have its own skin to a degree anyway? Or is it completely mitigated because they're in contact?

The skin effect is not due to having skin, it means current is displaced from the centre of the conductor and mostly flows in the outer parts. Therefore, having a conductor with a high surface to cross-section ratio is an advantage. Multi-strand gives you much more surface at the same gauge.
