Max diameter of MDPC sleeving?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I'm looking at using that MDPC sleeving for some diy speaker cables.
I'm using two types of cable with 6mm (0.236") and 8mm (0.315") outer diameter. Nils site doesn't have any specs and I'm not sure how expandable it is, so I was wondering:

6mm cable - Would the 'small' sleeving fit over 6mm (0.236") diameter cable? If not, how about the 'SATA' sleeving? (I'm guessing it would fit, but I don't want it to be loose...)

8mm cable -
Would the 'SATA' sleeving fit over 8mm (0.315") diameter cable? I know the 'small' definitely won't.

Thanks for your help. Then I'll be back off to diy speaker forums Cheers.

For audio uses I would use this stuff: http://cableorganizer.com/nylon-multifilament/
It is the same sleeving that most audio cable makers use to sleeve their cables It is similar to the paracord but it is specifically designed to be used a sleeving. It also isn't very expandable.
