Benchmark Studio&Stage™ Speaker Cables combine the best cable, connectors, and construction techniques in order to offer performance that meets the demands of world-class studios, while providing the strength and reliability required for stage applications.

This top-quality Benchmark cable features Canare Star-Quad Speaker Cable. Four heavy-duty 14 AWG stranded conductors are combined into two pairs arranged in a star-quad configuration. The combined conductors are equivalent to 11 AWG, but the star-quad configuration reduces magnetic interference, making these cables superior to 2-conductor cables.

Use this cable for connecting an AHB2 power amplifier to an SMS1 speaker (or any other speaker that uses a SpeakON twist-lock connector). Use this cable for stereo or bridged-mono applications only.  Use 4-pole cables for Bi-Amp applications.
