[IMG_0175001] Routing cables behind drywall or in new construction just got a whole lot easier. Enter Digital RapidRun, Impact Acoustics newest addition to their modular cable design solution. These cables allow you to route cables in a much easier manner for all of your digital and analog connectivity needs, now including HDMI and DVI.

All you do is simply route and pull the cable without the connectors and attach the modular terminations at each end when ready to use. The RapidRun connector is easily pulled through a conduit as small as 3/4" diameter. With 15lbs of pulling tension, the RapidRun connector will still pass through a 90 degree sweep.
