What will happen if you use a longer speakon cable for the B1 to spread them out a bit. Does the length make a difference? How about a 2 conductor speakon cable instead of a 4? What will happen if anything if you use a 2.

Audiopile makes cables of very high quality and workmanship. We recommend them highly.

So is it their NL4 Speakon Equipped 13-4 Bi-Amp Speaker Cable that you want?
If I remember right, Mark from Audiopile (who is definitely one of our favorite people) had found that larger guage wires were less susceptible to the problem. Hilmar and I looked into it further to find the root cause, and found the rather subtle issue that, depending on the wire gauges and how the wires were paired in the cable, loud bass signals (in the speaker pair of wires) in extra long cables could capacitively couple into the sensing pair of wires. When it happened, the L1 "thought" you were changing your B1 configuration and would mute.
So we looked at capacitance per foot with different wire guages, and with twisted vs untwisted pairs in the same cable, and looked at our sensing algorithm, and did two things to solve the problem:
We had Mark at Audiopile send us some samples to our new spec, we checked them, and they worked well. This gave a method for our customers who needed a long B1 cable to get one that worked.
The second thing we did was redesign the L1 software so that it could "filter out" the effects of momentary crosstalk and not cause the problem. That way future L1's would not have the issue.
So, with Mark's help we found and implemented two solutions to make the extra long B1 cable work, a use of the system that affects only a relatively small number of our customers.

Is there a UK supplier that anyone can recommend for either 3 metre or 5 metre cables for the B1?
