During the cooling or solidification phase of the wire manufacturing process, molecules are trapped in a haphazard pattern. This random placement causes obstacles for electrons when encountered. This interference can cause noise, slow down electron flow and will negatively affect the quality of the music being played. At very cold temperatures (below -300°F), the molecules will align in a more uniform, compact structure through the removal of kinetic energy. When the material is returned to ambient temperature, this new uniform, compact pattern is maintained. This process makes a permanent change and the benefits do not deteriorate over time or upon return to operating temperature.
