    9-Conductor Speaker Cable

    Could I run two pairs of RCA's, and 4 speker wires and a on wire for the amps... How many wires does a RCA need? On;y a left and a right? Or a left and a right and a ground or something...

    Speakers and RCA cables are completely different impedances...don't try to combine them on a single cable.

    Just do it correctly and get a 4-channel cable, and leave one set unused

    Much easier, and you're less likely to get interference or "crosstalk" issues.

    The biggest problem with that, as far as I see it, is that it's not shielded. You want a good braided shield over the conductors, to reduce any EMI/RFI issues.

    Re: 9-Conductor Speaker Cable

    No you wanna run a seperate wire for the sub. yes they do make 3 channel RCA's for home audio use but they arn't sheilded and it'll realy screw up your signal. Just go buy an extra set of RCA's

    I have a feeling you're making this way more difficult than it needs to be. How many amps do you have? Do you have three seperate amps for the front stage, rear fill, and subs? If so, get three seperate runs of two-channel RCA interconnects, and stop looking at Monster Cable if you're worried about price. They're overpriced. Try http://www.knukonceptz.com or Sounddomain for more reasonably priced stuff.

    I'm throughly confused...clarification on your install would be nice
