Seems to me titan ho7 cable is fairly priced and decent quality. 
Is there any reason the 4x4mm2 wouldn't be suitable for making up speakon cables?

Another question, bluearans own brand jam cable is significantly cheaper than van damme. Has anyone here used them?
How does the quality hold up?

Im sure it is fine. Van damme is overpriced and distinctly mediocre. Ho7 everytime

Titanex/Lineaux H074G4-RNF, used to be trade secret sub cable !!!

Never seen it kink, where as, forgotten how many crews I've seen, wheel out crates of kinked Van Damme cable.

The JAM cable, especially the more recent version is pretty good as a less expensive alternative.  It probably wouldn't be my cable of choice if I was running a PA company with gear going on on a daily basis but for most people it's going to be perfectly fine.

Most of my speaker cable is Kelsey SPL or what was previously branded ATM KA OFC speaker cable and some of those are now 10-15yrs old and still in good condition, hasn't turned into spiral telephone cable yet.

There’s no 8-core Lineax available though. Once you get used to fewer cables for the runs and breakout at the stack end, you don’t ever want to go back.

i was more concerned with durability and size than audio quality. all cables now made and very happy with the end result.

That is what socapex is for, and HO7 is readily available for that.

Oh we have that too, but you don’t half lose some friends if you spec 18 x 4mm^2
