Connectors are “TOP” – which stands for Total Outdoor Protection – The X-TOP series is a “heavy-duty” XLR cable connector for outdoor use. IP65 rating and certified outdoor protection to UL 50E by mating with related cable or chassis connector of the XLR TOP range.
TESTUDO is the new name for our Professional Quality Microphone Cable.
The word “TESTUDO” is from ancient Roman warfare, it was a type of shield wall formation commonly used during battles, particularly sieges. In the TESTUDO formation, the men would align their shields at the front with another shield on top slightly overlapping – a double shield if you will.
As our microphone cable has a double shield, this felt like a fitting name. The double shield in our cable is provided by a lapped oxygen free pure copper screen and then under that a black CPE layer. The double shield offers superb rejection of un-wanted noise – Radio Frequencies and Electromagnetic Interference etc.
The outer jacket has a completely new Anti Kink blend. It is completely smooth, wraps and falls perfectly and doesn’t retain its shape when wrapped / un wrapped. The cable lies completely flat on the floor, without retaining any loops. The new outer jacket material means these cable can be used outdoors (obviously any connectors used outdoors must be IP65 rated)
These cables are suitable for Microphone / Patch / Powered – Active Speaker Use and more. The connectors used are the industry standard, Neutrik. We use these for one reason – they don’t fail! Used by professionals all over the world, they are the market leader.
All cables are built to order – cut / soldered and tested by us here is Leicestershire. We are so confident in these cables we offer a Lifetime Guarantee against any manufacturing defects. The cables must be sent back to us at the buyers expense for testing.
The highly innovative entertainment industry is permanently evolving accompanied by increasing demands on interconnection systems. Particular environmentally sealed connectors are highly requested for heavy-duty and harsh environment applications of entertainment equipment like PA systems, signs and LED screens or lightings.
