Super cable

Van Damme Tour Grade Classic XKE Starquad cable provides flexibility, durability, noiseless operation and excellent handling characteristics. Originally made to high specifications for use in professional sound and video production in studio as well as in harsh outdoor environment such as live outdoor broadcasting and concerts. This specifications well exceed requirements of communication or automotive wire while combines electrical integrity with mechanical strength without compromising flexibility. It is designed to withstand high and low temperatures and havy mechanical abuse, at the same time combination of it's geometry, materials and construction provides excellent rejection of radio frequency and electromagnetic interference (RFI and EMI).

  • Heat resistant up to 150 ºC x 1 hour - no cracks
  • Improved outer jacket ensures cable remains flexible in sub zero temperatures.
  • Tightly packed cotton fillers ensure no static build up and even capacitance.
  • 98% optical coverage braided screen for exceptional mechanical strength, effective shielding and flexibility.
  • Combination of silver plated and plain ultra pure oxygen free copper conductors for unsurpassed signal quality.

Water and Dust proof

All connection and wire entry points are fully sealed.

  • Solid housing construction privents any liquid or dust entering from the sides.
  • Watertight springable rubber membrane around connector.
  • Screw-on system with watertight membrane and extra layer of heat-shrink surrounding the cable entry.
  • Water and Dust proof IEC rating IP67.

(DO NOT submerge when disconnected, when connected make sure your devices are also conform to IP67) (Emerald ECU is splash proof NOT water proof so DO NOT submerge)

Crimped terminals


No soldering on terminals.

All wires are properly and correctly
crimped with gold plated terminals.





Solid housing

Solid one piece construction made from PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) offers stiffness, toughness as well as excellent electrical insulation properties and surface finishes which is further contributes to water and dust tightness, durability and roboostness of the whole product.

In addition the entire inner space of the housing is filled with solid material to prevent any damage from accidential pull on the cable. This also ensures that all electrical connections are completly sealed and unmovable.



All parts are RoHS compliant
