Re: Star grounding - putting it into practice
FWIW, I run ALL of the wires in my amps so that no wire touches another. I try to keep them separated by at least 3/8" minumum...the further apart, the better. Where I have to cross a wire, it is done at 90degrees and the wires do not touch. I bend the top wire to form a bridge over the other one. Of course this wouldnt work unless you are using solid core wire. All of my amps are done this way and they are extremely quiet at all volume levels....I cant say for sure whether or not this is what makes them quiet because I've never tried it any other way, and I do other things in the circuit design intended to make the amps quiet.
