There are almost as many theories about speaker cables as there are audiophiles. Many music lovers believe that the larger gauge the speaker wire, the better the performance. That is not necessarily true. The idea behind the thory is that larger gauge speaker wire minimizes audible loss. Unfortunately it is not true. While increasing the thickness of a conductor does lower DC resistance and some resistive loss, larger speaker wires increase inductive loss. This actually is what causes much of the degradation that we hear when auditioning speaker cables. The optimal speaker cable would minimize both resistance and inductance to preserve as much of the original waveform as possible.
Since magnetic force varies exponentially with distance, positive and negative conductors of an audio cable need to be in close proximity to one another in order to minimize electromagnetic loss. This is the drawback associated with thick conductors. They simply can’t be placed close enough together. Wireworld has created a solution to this challenge however. They have flattened thier cables.
The flattening of their cable geometries is the basis for Wireworld's DNA Helix cable designs. The flat conductors are as thin as a single strand, there are multiple strands to provide very low resistance, and all of the strands are completely parallel. According to Wireworld, DNA Helix Geometry provides the most direct signal path possible. Furthermore, for each design, the spacing between the two polarities is tuned to match the sound of a direct connection.
