A clearly audible step up from Rocket 11, Rocket 22 is a high-performance, low-noise, CL3/FT4-certified cable designed to quickly and easily accommodate either Full-Range or Single-BiWire applications, making it an outstanding choice for custom installers and enthusiasts alike. With no breakouts, pants, or braids to cut back and dress, preparation is as simple as can be.
AudioQuest SureGrip 100 or SureGrip 300 spades or bananas, featuring Direct-Silver plating with no intermediate layer of distortion-causing nickel, are the perfect complement to Rocket 22.
Rocket 22 is CL3/FT4-certified.
LONG-GRAIN COPPER/PERFECT-SURFACE COPPER CONDUCTORS: Rocket 22 uses a carefully finessed blend of Long-Grain Copper (LGC) and high-purity Perfect-Surface Copper (PSC). LGC has fewer impurities and fewer internal grain junctions than standard OFHC copper, while the even smoother, purer surface of PSC further eliminates harshness and improves clarity. All AudioQuest conductors are direction-controlled for optimum noise dissipation.
IDEAL FOR FULL-RANGE OR SINGLE-BIWIRE CONFIGURATIONS: Use Rocket 11 as a full-range cable, with red (+) and black (-) conductors grouped together, or, when the speakers provide separate bass and treble inputs, further optimize system performance by biwiring.
SEMI-SOLID TRUE-CONCENTRIC CONDUCTOR DESIGN: In a True-Concentric conductor design, each successive layer of stranded conductor spirals in the direction opposite of its underlying layer. This technique eliminates the lines of contact between adjacent conductor layers, while increasing pressure at the contact points, thereby significantly reducing electrical-contact strand interaction and its accompanying distortion.
DOUBLE LOW-INDUCTANCE TWISTED PAIR GEOMETRY: A typical speaker cable with parallel conductors has fairly high inductance, smearing energy across time, which results in sound that is dull and unfocused. In Rocket 11, the two conductors in each half of the cable are twisted around one another, providing lower inductance, greater clarity, and superior bass-to-treble frequency extension.
