Is Canare thicker than 1313 ? I have both but I found Canare so much much THICKER.

tat is becos the Canare is a 4 core bundle, but individual cable is 14AWG, compared to the 1313 its a heavier gage at 10AWG.

i hv tried to use the 4S11 as a 2 core wire (interwined 2 reds and 2 whites) but still the sound cannot fight the 1313A

U talking abt Canare 4S11?

1313A is definitely thicker than 4S11. I've owned 4S11 before, and its no where thicker than 1313A

Paiseh. Last min got something on. Will go down tomorrow instead. Really desperate in need of some bare 1313A. I am already running a pair of terminated 1313A in my hall setup. Have to agree that the sound is getting better n better everyday.  :)

Mmm.. not sure lei.. see this pic:

Black one is 1313A, the Grey One should be Canare 4S11 ba...(cannot remember...)... Grey one is slightly thicker than the black one...



Did I make a mistake ? :)

You got the cables right.  But the gauge size refers to a single core inside the insulation you see.  If you compare 1 red cable of the 1313A to 1 red cable of the 4s11, the 1313A is thicker.  The outer diameter of the 4S11 is bigger because there's 4 cables inside, while the 1313A only got 2.
