Cobra VEE 3 is similar in construction and configuration to Crimson VEE 3 but with a crucial and performance-improving difference. Cobra VEE 3 conductors are constructed from multi-stranded silver-plated oxygen free copper conductors and the conductors are insulated with FEP, a material with very similar performance characteristics to PTFE. This combination of materials is used extensively in Chord cable designs. We find that it improves signal transfer across a wide bandwidth, particularly noticeable at frequency extremes. The balanced conductors are held in place with cotton spacers to reduce mechanical noise and protected with a dual layer high frequency effective foil and braid combination shield. The shielding is surrounded with a soft PVC to provide further mechanical damping and this is protected with a hard PVC outer jacket.
The Chord Cobra VEE 3 is fitted with Chord's custom VEE 3 RCA plug. TheABS outer shell and the unique silver-plating process applied to the contact areas of the plug improve signal transfer across a wide frequency range. The signal return surround provides a secure high-pressure contact with all types of RCA sockets. The centre pin is insulated withPTFE and the design of the plug and ABS outer shell provides good strain relief without compressing the cable and compromising performance.

Cobra VEE 3's silver-plated, FEP insulated conductors and high frequency effective dual layer shield, combine to carry a signal with a high degree of accuracy. It's the combination of silver-plated conductors and effective shielding that makes the Cobra VEE 3 such a good interconnect to use with subwoofers. The shielding makes it possible to run long lengths of cable and the conductors bring an extra degree of precision (always a good thing with subwoofers).
