Canare L-4E3-8P 100M 8-Channel Star Quad Microphone Cable (328' / 100 m)
The Canare L-4E3-8P 100M 8-Channel Star Quad Microphone Cable (328' / 100 m) is a 25 AWG Star Quad snake cable with braided shields. Each channel is completely isolated and consists of 4 conductors surrounded by an overall braided shield encased in a color coded striped PVC jacket. The 4-conductor style construction minimizes the loop area between twists of the conductors. This double balanced pairing reduces susceptibility to electromagnetically induced noise.
Fine conductor stranding for flexibility facilitates roll up and easy payout. Large numbers of thin wire strands are used in the copper conductors and overall braided shield. A special compound PVC outer jacket is extruded that remains pliant at extremely low temperatures with no wait between cold shipping and installation. The 4-conductor design provides superior EMI and RFI noise rejection in problem areas on the stage.
This Star Quad cable is designed for use with microphones but is also excellent for all line-level signals (e.g. mixer to power amps). The 4-conductor arrangement cancels electromagnetically induced noise from SCR dimmer packs, fluorescent lighting ballasts, and AC power transformers. Handling noise is prevented by use of cotton filler material. Good frequency response is maintained due to special irradiated polyethylene insulation which acts as a low capacitance dielectric
Good crosstalk characteristics allow different signals (-120 dB mic, 4 dB line, 10 dB code levels) to be used in adjacent channels.
