Cardas Clear Light, Clear, and Clear Beyond speaker cable all belong to the Cardas Clear family of cables. Outstanding clarity with any brightness or harshness, Cardas Clear cables have a clear natural tone that we have not hear from any cable before. Signature Sound has been a Cardas Audio dealer for close to 20 years and feature Cardas Clear cables in our reference system and can vouch first hand for its outstanding performance. While not inexpensive, Cardas Clear series cables offer performance better than a number of extremely expensive cables we have heard. Termination on the Cardas Clear and Cardas Clear Beyond cables uses no solder!!! Very high pressure cold forged crimped connections (using custom connectors and tooling developed by George Cardas) make for a perfect copper to copper connect between wire and connector. We have summarized the different Clear Speaker Cables and the retail prices for the most common size below, but these cables are available in a very wide range of terminations and lengths, so please call or contact us for your specific needs (terminations and lengths) and we will get back to you with a price quote.
Cardas Clear Speaker Cables are the outgrowth of years of intense refinements to every aspect of speaker cable design. New metallurgical drawing and refining techniques have yielded a new, extremely low eddy current copper. The geometry is a perfect mirror, matched propagation design that is as near to perfection as any ever envisioned. The connectors and the connection techniques are, without a doubt, the best ever devised. Clear Speaker cable is perfect for most amplifier/speaker combinations.

Clear Beyond Speaker Cables are simply that, it is beyond the demands of any loud speaker or amplifier combination imaginable. No impedance dip or current flow demand is a challenge in any way. Clear Beyond is simply overkill for all but the most extreme systems. Clear was not easy. I took a year just to developed the multi-stage, pure fusion connector to conductor connection. It required engineering special dies, then endless hours of fiddling with 10,000 psi hydraulic gear, creating perfectly matched, fully machined connectors. All conductors required tedious individual strand chemical stripping of the litz wire. Because every detail of these cables is so time consuming, their production will be limited for the foreseeable future.

Cardas Clear Light Speaker Cables is a simplified version of our renowned Clear speaker cable, offering much of Clear’s performance at a more affordable price. Clear Light features a symmetrical, matched propagation design, very similar to the conductor used in Clear Speaker cable. As with Clear and Clear Beyond, Clear Light comes standard with forged spades. Clear Light Speaker is now fitted with engraved, anodized aluminum end pieces.

Cardas Clear Jumpers use the same conductor found in Clear Speaker Cable. These jumpers offer superior performance over internally bi-wiring Clear cables.
