unbalanced lineA cable design that uses different wire types for the signal and ground. Coaxial cable is an unbalanced line, because the signal wire is a small solid wire, and the ground wire is a braided metal that wraps around the inner wire and insulation. The commonly used RCA cables for audio and video are unbalanced coax (see RCA connector). Contrast with balanced line. See balun.
