Cable Solutions O2X-Series OFHC Speaker Cable with Vampire Wire #HDS5 Spades (front-right channel shown)
Cable Solutions O2X-Series speaker cables are made with Oxygen-Free High-Conductivity (OFHC) copper cable. Each conductor is composed of 7 groups, each having 36 OFHC copper strands, arranged in a spiral twist configuration, for a total of 252 strands and an aggregate size of 12 AWG. The two conductors are jacketed in "water clear" 105 degree Centigrade PVC material. The conductors are arranged parallel to one another, which is sometimes referred to as a Siamese style.
The result is great performance at an attractive price. This flexible and attractive cable is suitable for many applications. Because of the flattened profile, this cable can be run along baseboards or carpet edges for an unobtrusive look. In addition, it can handle sharp turns that other cables cannot.
As they say at Vampire Wire, "Without the proper connector - it's just wire!" That's why we use high-quality, gold-plated Vampire Wire connectors to terminate your cables. Choose from any of the Vampire Wire (or alternate) terminations shown at the right for your cables.
We are offering these cables singly so that you can combine and customize them to exactly fit your needs. For example, if you need a matched stereo pair, purchase one front-left cable and and one front-right cable. Here are the customization options:
These cables are sold singly, so any number of channels can be accommodated, but here are some popular combinations:
We offer lengths ranging from 0.3 meter to 20 meters. When purchasing multiple cables for multiple channels, as an example, you might specify matching lengths for a purist stereo hook-up, but use asymmetrical lengths for less critical surround and effects channels. The choice is yours.
It's confusing, because price does not necessarily relate directly to sonic or aesthetic improvement. We had to solve this dilemma for our own custom installations. Our customers tell us that they want performance, but they would rather buy extra components than to tie up thousands of dollars in speaker cables. That's why we offer these O2X-Series OFHC cables - you get solid performance at a reasonable price.

Here is another shot of the #HDS5 spades - notice the elongated, offset blade, which is a good fit for most equipment. The design also leaves plenty of room for heat-shrink coverage.
Vampire Wire #SS9 spades are our second most popular. They have a stepped blade, which works with many different binding posts, including oversized designs such as those used on most B&W speakers. This picture shows the connectors installed on Canare Star Quad cable, but the appearance on O2X-Series is similar.
These #BAR spades are a good choice for smaller terminals or barrier strips. This picture shows the connectors installed on Canare Star Quad cable, but the appearance on O2X-Series is similar.
Vampire Wire #SPD spades have a slimmer blade, which can be helpful in cases of clearance problems. This picture shows
the connectors installed on Canare Star Quad cable, but the appearance on O2X-Series is similar.
(formerly known as #SPD8)
The #PIN1 pins are an excellent choice for equipment with large spring-clips, or for use in combination with banana plugs. This picture shows the connectors installed on Canare Star Quad cable, but the appearance on O2X-Series is similar.
Here is the #SB single banana plug, installed on an #HDS5 spade. (#SB requires #PIN1 pins or #HDS5 spades)
Here are the #DB double banana plugs. (#DB requires #PIN1 pins)
This cable can also be fitted with Canare's excellent F-15 1/4" TS Phone plugs. This option works well with DJ systems.
