Ethernet development, with the latest category copper cable and single-mode fiber, tends to attract most of the attention in our market-space these days. Despite trends of merging A/V, security, and traditional datacom roles, A/V and security are seen as periphery solution sets by many. And by relegating these to the sidelines, it only ensures that integration - and the next slice of the installation pie - remains a small item for our contractor and integrator partners.
So to help you become familiar with common A/V cabling parts, Belden has created a Speaker Cable Guide, which you can download for free below. Belden offers speaker cables for a wide range of applications, including plenum, indoor/outdoor, halogen-free, direct burial, commercial and professional installations. All cables feature Electrolytic Tough Pitch (ETP) pure virgin copper construction (ASTM B3 and B8). They also offer Direct Burial speaker cable with ASTM B170, ultra-high purity (99.995% pure), sometimes described as “oxygen-free (OFC)” copper. A few other key points about Belden's speaker cables include:
- Belden speaker cables feature soft drawn and annealed conductors which result in greater flexibility without breakage
- Cables pull easily and are engineered to maintain their signal integrity despite installation abuse
- Jackets are easy to strip, saving installation time and money
- They hold an industry leading 10 year product warranty
