This Van Damme Professional Blue Series Studio Grade 2 x 2.5 mm (10AWG) core - Speaker Cableis part of the popular cable range and ideal for satellite speakers or situations that require a small diameter cable. Total cable diameter is 7.6mm.
The industry standard Van Damme range of blue series 2 core speaker cables has now been comprehensively upgraded. They now feature finer stranded conductors and utilise the latest PVC composite jacket materials to provide the highest level of flexibility married with totally efficient signal transmission. This range of cables is ideal for rehearsal and recording studio applications but is equally at home.
Van Damme now use a higher purity oxygen free copper for the conductors - Ultra-Pure Oxygen Free Copper (UPOFC). The use of this material further improves the solderability and conductivity of the conductor resulting in faithful and transparent signal reproduction.
In common with most cables of its type PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is used for the conductor insulation. There are many variant types of PVC used for cable insulation that may exhibit moderate good or better electrical and mechanical properties. As speaker signals are essentially relatively high DC voltages a low dielectric constant is not a priority. The PVC polymers used by Van Damme maximise the flexibility heat resistance and stress resistance characteristics of PVC to ensure that there is a minimum of insulation shrinkback when soldering and a high level of flexibility even after years of use and abuse. The overall jacket material is a neoprene heavy special PVC composite that has an almost rubberised quality. This jacket is high pressure extruded over the 2 twisted inner conductors to create a robust extremely flexible speaker cable that has excellent coilability in use.
