    Where To buy bulk RCA cable to make rca's

    as said in title where can i buy bulk spools of RCA cable to make custom RCA Cables. found out that for a set of 2 channel rca' you need 4 wires and speaker wire only has 2. Radio Shack? thats were i got my ends at today and phucked everything up trying to use speaker wire from lowes.

    anyways uve lookd all over Google and all they have is them pre made RCA's that arent custom.

    ur urgent response is appriciated


    doesnt have to be high end just doesnt need to not work like the speaker wire did and doesnt need to brake me.

    Re: Where To buy bulk RCA cable to make rca's

    didnt work my rca ends have a little screw and a place to crimp then it has these small a$$ boots that you slide over the wire and can barely get 1 piece of this 14ga speaker in the boot to crimp to the end. then i catch hell trying to slide the boot back up the wire and over the terminal. ive had a bad evening 2day

    Re: Where To buy bulk RCA cable to make rca's

    results could possibly be different if you used higher gauge, its gotta be thin enough so you can hook both wires to the rca male input. but i dont know what you have going on over there
