English term or phrase:tinsel leads
In un elenco di caratteristiche tecniche di un subwoofer trovo la frase
Insulated 16 awg tinsel leads
Ho trovato su Internet una definizione in inglese:
Tinsel leads are the thin, flexible wire generally suspended under the cone. Think of these as the liaison between the terminals and the voice coil. These wires are made of multiple strands of alloys woven together with high strength fibers. This combination of materials provides extreme flexibility and greatly reduces any breakdown of the alloy's materials over time.
non ho mai incontrato questo termine, quindi non ho la risposta, ma questo è quello che trovo nei miei materiali di riferimento. Un saluto e un benvenuto (nel senso che compare sporadicamente con quesiti) a Marcello, che conosco dalla lista ATA e dall'incontro langit di Ostia. Buona permanenza su Proz.

English tinsel cord
Italian conduttore flessibile
A type of electrical conductor comprised of a number of tin threads, each thread having a fine, flat ribbon of copper or other metal closely spiraled about it. Used for small size cable requiring limpness and extra-long flex life.
* Tinsel wire: A very thin, metallic conductor is wound around a flexible cloth or plastic core.
Tinsel wire is found in telephone and headphone cords since it can be made extremely flexible.
