Cables for companies and public places

Almost every public place and every company, such as event centres, libraries, clubs and canteens, is in posession of a sound system. A club will generally have a more extensive sound system than a canteen, but the basis often consists of a number of speakers in combination with a computer or multimedia player. Cables that are used for this are:

  • Cables with (Tulip)RCA-connection::  One of the most used unbalanced audio connectors with which conventional multimedia players, turntables, microphones and more devices can be connected.
  • XLR-cables: Are recommended when the cable has to travel a longer distance to connect for example multimedia players, amplifiers and microphones.
  • Speaker cables: Can be used to connect speakers, mixers and amplifiers
  • Cable on reel: Can be a good and affordable solution when the space that needs to be cables is very large and thus requires a lot of cable. These cables are extremely flexible and super sturdy at the same time.
  • Separate connectors: Offer a complete solution by offering separate connectors in addition to cable on a reel. With connectors, every cable can be assembled according to the customer's wishes.

If the location also wants to connect, for example, lighting or a fog generator, they also need a DMX cable:

  • DMX cables: Have the same connection as an XLR cable, but have higher resistance than XLR cables so that they can be used to connect lighting and other devices.

Cables for DJs

The basis of a DJ set is basically the same for each set. It consists of one or more devices with which the DJ can play music.Think of, for example, a computer with a DJ controller, but also a CD player or turntable. Of course, in order to play the music speakers are also needed. The amount and type of speakers that the DJ needs depend on the size of the room in which the music should be heard and on the size of the audience in this room. To connect this equipment, a number of power and signal cables are required, such as:

  • Cables with (Tulip)RCA-connection: One of the most used unbalanced audio connectors with which conventional multimedia players, turntables, microphones and more devices can be connected.
  • XLR cables: Are recommended when the cable has to travel a longer distance to connect for example multimedia players, amplifiers and microphones.
  • DMX cables: Have the same connection as an XLR cable, but have higher resistance than XLR cables so that they can be used to connect lighting and other devices.
  • Speaker cables: Can be used to connect speakers, mixers and amplifiers.
  • Separate adapters: Can be used by DJs and sound engineers, for example, if they want to convert a specific connection of a particular cable to the desired connection, for example when they are at work on a location and did not bring the right XLR cables. With an adapter they can easily convert male to female cables and vice versa.


Cables for musicians

When musicians use intruments that have to be connected to a sound sytem, of course, cables are needed. Think about an electric guitar or keyboard, but also when amplifying a drum kit or saxophone, cables will be needed to connect them to the sound system. The type of connection that is needed can differ for each instrument, but in general musicians use the following cables:

  • Cabels with jack male connection: Can be plugged into a female jack connection that most instruments have.
  • Cables with XLR connection: This connection is often seen at microphones and in some cases also at instruments. If you, for example, want to connect an instrument with jack female directly to a mixer you can use a cable with jack to female XLR.
  • Speaker cables: Can be used to connect speakers, mixers and amplifiers.
  • Separate adapters: Can be used by DJs and sound engineers, for example, if they want to convert a specific connection of a particular cable to the desired connection, for example when they are at work on a location and did not bring the right XLR cables. With an adapter they can easily convert male to female cables and vice versa.
