Hey guys. Just picked up a Marshall 2555x and jubilee 2551bv cab. Looking at the supplied cable between looks very thin and has cheap looking jacket. Is it upgradeable? Or waste of time?
Anything more than $20 or with fancy namebrands is just snake oil. But fill your boots, it's your money.
The price of cab speaker cables is painful isn't it? At an L&M clear out bin, I asked for one, and it looked like the cord from a 1960's desk lamp. But they insisted it was a speaker cable. I haven't had any issues with it.Chord just looks cheesy.
I think you're referring to resistance. At these lengths, it's all but moot. Same goes for capacitance/inductance - cable running from your amp to your cab is short enough that it won't make a difference. If you start looking at speaker cables longer than 10 feet, then yes, capacitance can become an issue, but that's mostly audiophile nit-picking.Also was wondering if impedance really made a difference or is it a standard spec on the cable? Doesnt seem like it if people are creating their own. I guess just make sure the impedance would be less?
I think of a jacket as a mechanical covering (plastic/rubber/teflon/etc) - for protection from abrasions or cutting. I think of shielding as a grounded electrical covering (braid or foil) - to reject stray signals.I wondered "jacketing" was another way of saying "shielding".
I have never seen shielded speaker cable...not that it means much.

This is what I was referring to. I wasn't very clear....Sorry.I understand people increasing the size but I was thinking a shorter cable with some jacketing.
