Belden Brilliance 8451 22 AWG 2C Mic Line Instrument Cable Beldfoil Shield 250 ft. USA
Belden Brilliance 8451 22 AWG 2C Mic Line Instrument Cable Beldfoil Shield 250 ft. USA is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right cable for my installation!When I built my house I ran some 'Smurf Tube' conduit between places I knew I'd want additional connections someday, but didn't know what I'd want. Turns out some balanced lines fit the bill in a couple of cases. The conduit is 3/4" and I wanted 4 runs in one of them, so I didn't want the larger 8mm rubber coated type, which would be much harder to pull if it fit at all. Knowing Belden is a quality brand, this thin cable with foil shield looked perfect. Yesterday I pulled and terminated the 4 cable run, this cables slick surface and small diameter made this an easy pull. I then soldered the wall plate mounted XLRs, the cable stripped and soldered easily. For my application this cable worked perfectly. The cable was delivered quickly, and the price was right at Parts Express, great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Easy to UseGreat cable, nice small diameter and flexible. It comes on a study plastic spool. I have been using this to make a number of snake bundles fist in an equipment rack between a TT patch panel and other equipment. Also used for in ceiling installation of headphone and mic signal between vocal booth and control room. And finally, a 25 foot long snake with 24 pars for instrument and headphone between the live room and control room. The cable is easy to terminate and handle since it is the 22 AWG and not the smaller size typically found. The only caution is this use a foil wrapped shield and is not meant for daily stage use where it is coiled and un-coiled, the shield will break down in the environment.

It says the diameter is .138, but that seems very narrow.
Asked by: RyanRs
That dimension is accurate.
