Speaker Cables / Jack and Speakon

Speaker cable „Raptor”

Ideal for connecting a „head” type of guitar or bass amplifier with a speaker cabinet.
Speaker cables are just as important as instrumental cables.  The right width of the cable is crucial because it allows the correct amount of power from the amplifier to flow to the speakers. But the biggest influence on tone has the material from which the cable is made from.

 

The diameter of our „Raptor” cable is 8.6 mm.  The special combination of materials used in the „Raptor” characterizes itself by letting the „mids” get through more freely which, in turn, creates an effect of the overall sound getting through clearer on stage or in the studio.

The cable is protected by a special woven cover and tube to provide increased protection and, in turn, lifespan of the cable.

Direction of the Cable

The connections should be done according to the markings on the cable – in direction from the source of sound source to the receiver.  In this case, the amplifier being the source and the cabinet being the receiver.

In our speaker cables, we used the highest quality plugs from Neutrik and G&H.

Plug types:

  • straight 1/4″ plug
  • 90° angled 1/4″ plug
  • Speakon plug
