HILLSIDE, NJ â€“ Wireworks put this yearâ€™s InfoComm attendees to the test as they took a stab at guessing the exact measurement of the companyâ€™s ultra-flexible microphone cable, MusiLUX, which was closely wrapped into a small fishbowl, for its â€œHow Many Feet of MusiLUX Cable is in the Bowlâ€? contest. Andy Seale, CEO of Extol Promedia, a consulting, system design and installation company, was awarded 5,000 feet of Wireworks best-selling microphone cabling as he had the closest guess, without going over. Coincidentally Seale was the very first person to submit his guess on the opening day of the show.
â€œI was admiring Wireworks display of MusiLUX during my first day at the show and figured Iâ€™d take a shot at it,â€? says Seale. â€œI will definitely use my prize throughout my next installation. I also have my eyes set on the companyâ€™s SpeakerLUX cables; hopefully Wireworks will have another contest highlighting that product next year!â€?
MusiLUX is the ultimate in sonic excellence and flexibility. It is constructed of one 22-gauge pair, a bare copper drain wire and features a 100% coverage conductive thermoplastic shield. The ultra-flexible PVC satin finish outer jacket is available in black, brown, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, grey and white.
For easy preparation, MusiLUX features Wireworks â€œone second stripâ€? which eliminates the time-consuming task involved in terminating cables with braided shields and cotton fillers. MusiLUXâ€™s 10 colors can be used for easy signal identification, as a way to show corporate colors or to blend/match the venueâ€™s dÃ©cor. MusiLUX is conveniently packaged in a 500 ft. â€œspool-in-a-boxâ€? for easy storage and convenient cable unreeling.
â€œOur MusiLUX contest was a great success for us, it really showcased how flexible our MusiLUX cabling is,â€? states Gerald Krulewicz, president of Wireworks. â€œThe estimates we received ranged from outlandish to pretty close. Our winner came within under 10 feet of the actual length, which for all submitters, totaled 359 feet and 8 inches.â€?
