Galibier Design - Wind River Speaker Cables
Wind River with Furutech FT-211(G) Spade Lugs

The NiWatt amplifiers showed us the way.  They are extremely revealing, and every speaker cable we tried had some sort of flaw.  The NiWatts are truth-tellers.

During prototyping, we evaluated the Wind River cables in low and medium efficiency systems.  We  made minor adjustments, and are comfortable in saying that these cables have near-universal compatibility.  Here’s a bit of background on their development.

Contact us for details about no-risk demos.

Every pair of NiWatt amplifiers sold will be delivered with a single wire set of these cables (biwire optional).

Construction:

Galibier Design - Furtech Spade Lug

    • Gold plated copper Furutech FT-211(G) spade lugs.  Furutech FT-212(G) Bananas are optional
    • Cotton sleeving for best dielectric performance

Banana Plugs – Furutech FT-212(G):

Galibier Design - Furtech Banana PlugUntil we found the Furutechs, we haven’t been able to endorse a suitable banana connector alternative to high quality spades. 

While the ETI bananas are very good, they could not accommodate our 9 gauge cable. 

The Furutechs are every bit as good as the ETI bananas and have the added bonus of a secure and easily handled locking mechanism.

Bi-wire Pairs

Our general recommendation is to run separate speaker cables for flexibility:

    • One set terminated with spades at both ends
    • The second set employing a half set of bananas – terminated with bananas at the amplifier end and spades at the speaker end
