General Information


Designed by Dave Rat to be the most versatile and reliable CAT cable on the market, the SuperCAT Sound cable combines high performance data cable with the best in pro audio. We took 12 conductor cable, added a non-woven wrap for increased flexibility, and jacketed it all in extremely durable polyurethane. What you get is an easy-to-handle CAT cable that can withstand the rigors of pro audio use, night-after-night, no matter the environment.

One of the things that makes SuperCAT Sound so special is that each twisted pair has its own drain wire and shield, meaning that it can be terminated directly to tails (4 XLR, DMX, ¼” TRS, or mini plug connections) or with high-quality RJ45/etherCON connectors. Each pair is precisely twisted at different speeds to eliminate crosstalk, reject outside noise, and allow for higher frequency response. These cables are built with touring in mind.

Comes in 100m/330ft - 60m/200ft - 30m/100ft - 15m/50ft - 3m/10ft - 1m/3ft lengths. For more information about pricing and availability please call our sales team at RAT Sound Systems at 1-888-545-8271.
