The INSPIRATION HYBRID (Halogen Free)á

The new twin lead loudspeaker cable of our state-of-the-art FUSION SERIES. It equally excels in bi-wiring and bi-amping configurations or even as interconnect. It’s highly versatile and heavily protected against audio signal interference.

  • Very detailed signal transmission and superb spacious character. 
  • Protection from interferences caused by electromagnetic noise. It features a separate central ground lead* for ground connection between loudspeakers and amplifier. 
  • Four star-quad-configured signal lines surround the central ground lead. 
  • Additional protection against R.F. interference is provided by the cable’s heavy braided screen. (This should be grounded at the amplifier side and be left disconnected at the loudspeaker end) 
  • When using digital (switchmode) power amplifiers, any radiation of residual noise from the loudspeaker lines is prevented. 
  • Hybrid technology means the conductors are embedded in a conductive layer containing our Linear Structured Carbon ®. 
  • Jacket and insulation are both made of HULLIFLEX ® 4, a very rugged insulation material which provides outstanding protection. 
  • Having four signal lines, The INSPIRATION HYBRID is also suitable to be used as a bi-wiring or bi-amping loudspeaker cable; 
  • The signal lines are intended to be pairwise combined to form a twin lead loudspeaker cable with a total cross-section area of 2 x 3.94 mm² and a resistance of 2 x 1.4 Ω/100 m. 
  • With four signal lines The INSPIRATION HYBRID is also suitable to be used as a bi-wiring or bi-amping loudspeaker cable;

            (Total cross-section area: 4 x 1.97 mm²; Resistance: 4 x 2.8 Ω/100 m). 

  • (*) Some loudspeaker manufacturers equip their loudspeakers with a separate ground connection. (e.g. The Tannoy Dimension range TD-8, TD-10 and TD-12). Hopefully other brands will follow this good example!...

standard sales units

50 m. reels; With connectors mounted to specifications: any length; Without connectors: please consult your van den Hul dealer or the van den Hul distributor in your country.

With connectors mounted the cable is also available in stereo pairs (i.e. two separate cables) in the following standard configurations:
Bi-amping configuration: Each of both cables having 4 connectors at the amplifier side and 4 connectors at the speaker side.
Bi-wiring configuration: Each of both cables having 2 connectors at the amplifier side and 4 connectors at the speaker side.
Normal wiring configuration: Each of both cables having 2 connectors at the amplifier side and 2 connectors at the speaker side.

remarks

Mounting:
When twin lead wiring a loudspeaker, the two internal red leads should be combined to form the loudspeaker + connection. Likewise, the two blue leads should be combined to form the loudspeaker – connection.
When bi-wiring or bi-amping a loudspeaker, the first red and blue conductor pair is used to connect one speaker section and the second red and blue conductor pair to connect the other speaker section.
When ordered with connectors mounted, The INSPIRATION HYBRID comes ready made with a ground lead at each side of the cable:
At the cable end located in the direction of the “van” side of the “van den Hul” cable printing (i.e. at the amplifier side), both the cable shield and the cable’s central ground lead are connected together and exit as a ground lead, which is to be connected to the power amplifier’s dedicated ground terminal (or chassis). If it is impossible to connect this ground lead to any ground terminal (or chassis screw) at the amplifier, it can be connected to the amplifier’s “–” (i.e. black) output terminal of the channel in question.
At the cable end located in the direction of the “Hul” side of the “van den Hul” cable printing (i.e. at the loudspeaker side), the cable shield is left disconnected. Here only the cable’s central ground wire exits as a ground lead.
If your loudspeakers are equipped with ground terminals, this ground lead should be connected to the speaker’s ground terminal of the channel in question.
If your loudspeakers are not equipped with ground terminals, this ground lead should be left disconnected.
