PLEASE NOTE: All multicores are designed to handle line level and mic level type signals. The stage box is sited on stage, and the outputs from instruments and microphones are plugged into the stagebox. These signals then travel down the multicore cable length to a sound mixing board or desk situated off stage. Here the individual signals are mixed and processed, and the master pre-amp output from the mixer is then sent back down the multicore cable to the PA amplifier or powered PA speakers on stage.
This signal should not be a fully amplified signal from the output of a power amp or powered mixer amp because multicores are designed to carry pre-amp signals. If a fully amplified signal is sent down the multicore, there will be power and signal quality loss. The longer the multicore, the more the signal loss and degradation.
Amplified signals from the output of an amp need proper speaker cables to connect to passive non-powered PA speakers. These PA speaker cables minimise signal loss.
