Hi
Does anyone know if there’s anyplace that makes/sells cloth covered 4 wire speaker cable like what was used on Atwater Kent radios like the models 47, 55, etc.? I have several cables that the cloth covers are unfortunately just falling off and I’d really like to replace them with better looking stuff! Any info appreciated!
Thanks
Mike

Thanks Lorenz
I appreciate the response but that’s a 2 wire for the earlier speakers. I’m looking for the 4 wire type. Judging by the lack of other responses, I’m going to conclude that there are no NOS or reproductions out there. Guess I’ll have to find a plan B.

Radio Daze shows it on their website, but I heard they were getting out of selling parts to concentrate on reproduction graphics and dials.

There are companies which cater to antique car restorations which can make custom wire harnesses with cloth covered wire.
Someone should be able to help.

I wonder if Sundial Wire would make that for you. It wouldn't hurt to ask...

I know Sundial will custom make wire but their minimum length run will make it big money.
I have been reopping custom wire for 3 years now. My main reason for ever considering
giving it a go, is my love for antique fans. There was a need for wire not commercially made
any longer. End game is now I can make anything I need. Plus I have gotten into odd radios
too.

There is also a void in the availability of tinsel cord used for speakers, speaker extensions and headphones. See:

I have never done a search for tinsel wire before nor have I ever repoped it.
Seems like that would be readily available.
