I am doing an audio install and getting lots of interference from the unshielded alarm wiring that is installed in the ceiling. It is not an option to put the wires elsewhere because of the design of the building and the places we need connections. So right now I was going to use belden foil-shielded 22awg 2 conductor 1 drain stranded cable. What i am looking for is some cable that is maybe a thicker gauge and most importantly i need a thicker shielding or maybe a cable that has foil and braiding shielding on it. This noise is driving me crazy and will not do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Belden makes just about any kind of cable you could ever need. Email them and they will send you a catalog, tri shield quad shield twisted non twisted, they make it!
