Tributaries Series 4 sub cable connector Analogue Audio

Tributaries Subwoofer Cables OFC Insulated


Tributaries introduced a series of new subwoofer cables, including the Series 2, Series 4, Series 6, and Series 8 cables. There are also Series 4 Y-cables for use in mono systems or for when you don’t have a subwoofer with the ability to handle a distinct mono input signal. Tributaries has been a brand we’ve used for quite some time, and it’s really cool to get behind a company whose products are hand-made in Orlando, Florida. These new Tributaries subwoofer cables are gorgeous and sound as good as they look.

Here’s how the new subwoofer cables break down in terms of features and specifications:

These cables are not only built with an attention to detail that isn’t seen nearly as much in the industry as it used to be, but they have an aesthetic design that really complements a great-looking subwoofer.
