Custom Audio Cable

Sometimes product engineers don't realize that a custom cable would better meet their needs until they try a stock product and see exactly where it falls short. That was the case here.

An amplifier manufacturer purchased STJ 26/4 cable, a stock product. After work started with the cable, they realized that it would work better for them if it were a smaller gauge and had a different color code. That’s when they called Allied.

The manufacturer was looking for 28 gauge wire, a size that is not standard for STJ cable. They also wanted the cable’s inners to comply with a special color code. Although these changes were small and simple enough to provide, the customer was also working within a budget and a timeframe.

The factory had quoted the amplifier manufacturer with a minimum of 20,000 to 30,000 feet and a six to eight week lead time. The customer had no use for this much cable, and wanted the new custom cable as quickly as possible so it could proceed with its production. The factory’s minimums and lead times were not going to work.

Allied believes custom cable should be a viable option for all of its customers, and puts an emphasis on its small minimums and short lead times. In the end, Allied offered a 500 to 1,000 foot minimum and delivered the cable in just two weeks.

The customer was thrilled with the final product, and was happy to save money and reduce waste thanks to Allied’s small minimums.
