Basso Profundo - a Sub Woofer Cable for Very Deep Bass
By Graham Nalty, proprietor of Black Rhodium
Black Rhodium Basso Profundo Deep Bass Sub-Woofer cable is designed to deliver the very best low frequency sound from High End Sub Woofers.
The design of Basso Profundo Deep Bass Sub-Woofer cable is based on a very thorough understanding of the Laws of Physics and the effects they describe. Black Rhodium has developed several effective engineering solutions that minimise the effects that the Laws of Physics describe to produce a cable that plays bass notes with precision and power.
The seven Laws of Physics that are known to influence sound quality in a cable that carries an electrical signal representing music can be listed as;
In the design of Basso Profundo Deep Bass Sub-Woofer cable we have taken great care to minimise each and every type of distortion separately by careful design and very extensive experimentation and audition.
The design features of Basso Profundo Deep Bass Sub-Woofer cable are based on applying the very best features from both the Charleston loudspeaker cable and the Chorale S RCA stereo interconnect to create a capable accurate resolution of low frequency notes. These features include proprietary innovations, based on extensive research and testing, exclusive to Black Rhodium. Other features of design are based on classical electrical engineering practice extensively used in audio and elsewhere.
Basso Profundo Deep Bass Sub-Woofer cable is fitted with Graham Nalty Straight Line Contact GN4 RCA plugs. The Straight Line Contact between the return conductor and socket has been chosen from listening tests that showed straight Line Contact connectors can deliver a large uplift in sound quality compared to high quality connectors with a circumferential connection of the return conductor.
The GN4 plugs are plated in rhodium. In listening tests, rhodium plated connectors give a cleaner sound that can add excitement to the presentation of the music.
