Power & DMX combi cable for the simultaneous connection of loudspeaker and subwoofer


Whereas conventional subwoofer designs have been known in practical use for many years and also proven to be sufficiently functional, the Sensor Control Subwoofer Technology enables to take a decisive new step towards a complete and coherent loudspeaker setup. The latter offers an extended low-frequency range with a flat frequency and phase response for a perfect music reproduction with exceptional precision and definition.

Particularly for this application a custom-made cable is required above all for the rental industry and live events. For this purpose Sommer cable has developed the SC-ELEPHANT ROBUST DMX power/DMX combi cable with an overall diameter of 19.5 mm (0.77 in.) that will be available from January 2022. Embedded in the stranding compound of the 4 x 4 mm² (0.0062 sq. in.) speaker cable is a full-featured DMX cable, pairwise insulated and shielded, with a wire cross-section of 2 x 2 x 0.22 mm² (0.00034 sq in.). This integrated 110-ohm control line allows to sensor-control subwoofer systems now without the need for laying extra cables. Of course, the control line may also be used as an ordinary microphone cable or for tie lines.
