Our SC series of Speaker Cables offers four different gauges of cable to allow you to choose the most fitted for your particular application. Available gauges range from 18 gauge cable, suitable for lower power applications requiring short runs of cable from amplifier to speaker enclosure, to our heavy duty 12 gauge speaker cable, designed to handle the higher power conditions found in many of today’s professional sound reinforcement applications.
Although each of the different models of cable can vary slightly in their internal construction, each has been designed to provide the maximum amount of fidelity possible. Inner conductors in all SC series cables utilize finely stranded, oxygen-free, high conductivity copper to provide the best signal transmission qualities possible. The stranding utilized in the inner conductors of our SC series cable is typically much finer than that used by most of our competitors, with the total number of strands within the conductor generally numbering over twice the amount found in other brands.
Although the cost of this type of stranding is considerably greater than that of the stranding found in other brands, it offers multiple benefits to the user. First, by increasing the total number of strands within the conductor, we take advantage of what is known as the “skin effect.” The “skin effect” refers to the fact that the higher frequencies of audio signals typically travel on the outside of the strands within the conductors. By, utilizing more strands within the individual conductors, the overall fidelity of the cable is improved.
Another very noticeable benefit to the finer stranding is that the mechanical flexibility of the cable is improved. To take advantage of the more flexible conductor, the jacketing material chosen for the SC series cables is constructed from specially formulated compounds that offer exceptional flexibility while offering the durability required of a professional quality speaker cable.
To assure optimum transmission of the audio signal as well as maximum durability, the SC series cables are terminated with G & H brand phone plugs. All SC series cables are also available with optional MDP plugs should your application require them. As an option, we also offer all SC series speaker cables with Neutrik brand“Speakon” connectors. Due to SC series speaker cables utilizing two conductor wires, please make certain that your application does not call for two discrete channels of speaker level information (BI-amp applications). If this is the case, please refer to our multi-channel NSSC4 series cables
