    High End RCA Cables

    *Mods- If this is not the right area for this post, please move it*
    What are the high end RCA's people here use?
    I'm looking to get some new ones to upgrade from my kickers when I get my new CD player, and am considering the Stinger SX17's and the Tsunami X15 series in a 17' length. Thanks for input.



    Various random equipment...

    Whatever's cheaper...honestly, when you get to a certain point, going more expensive doesn't get you anything...

    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.

    Re: High End RCA Cables

    There are some here that will wholeheartedly endorse the theory that "wire is wire" and spending heaps on high-end patch cables is pure lunacy.

    Without getting into a long discertation about it I'll simply say I disagree.

    I have three different sets - one Fosgate, one Stinger, and one StreetWires set (makes it easier for my lazy arse to tell them apart once they were all run into the trunk from behind the HU)

    Once I upgraded from 'bargain-basement' RCAs to some good ones the inducted noise problem that had been troubling me to no end immediately disappeared.

    Re: High End RCA Cables

    when i had my all-out audiobahn setup, i ran an 4ga amp kit by audiobahn and ran the rcas/power wire together and never gotten any noise.


    i would say rca's are important somewhat to care about. their is a limit on how low is low (no name ebay crap). i would pay no more than $30 for a 17' rca pair cable.

    Don't buy junk, but don't believe the hype about more expensive is better.
