    4 Ribbons connect to one terminal. The aggregate gauge is around 0. If your model were correct, then the cable should function as a crossover component and the roll off would be anywhere between 796 and 3183 Hz depending on the impedance of the speaker. This is, of course, not the case. I invite you to come and audition a system outfitted with this cable when you are in the S.F. Bay Area.

    Nordost uses a similar approach and have 0.125μH/ft inductance. Plus/minus conductors are adjacent but are in a flat (litz like) arrangement to minimize skin effect and do not rely on side by side +/- round wire configuration for reduction in loop inductance. Oh and they certainly do not roll off highs.

    That was an either or question.

    In the Nordost loudspeaker cables, the Plus & Minus conductors are permanently molded close to each other (looking at the closest strands). So they may have reasonable loop inductance (I'll have to find the old equation book).

    That was an easy to decipher answer.
