    Speaker wire next to RCAs?

    I am doing a build in an MR2, will be amps in the boot and subs and speakers in the cabin. Was hoping to run a bunch of speaker wire and RCAs all down the same route, but will this cause interference issues? The RCAs are pretty cheap ones so not sure how good their shielding will be.

    I'd bet that would be fine, if not get some higher quality rcas.

    the concern in car audio with RCA's isn't shielding but build quality. connections are stressed and the cheap molded RCA's usually fail physically.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Sweet as, used these same RCAs again and again in different set-ups and haven't had issues so I'll be all good.

    Not necessarily, you can break them. After installed, use a DMM to verify resistances.
