    Don't want to cheap out on my 4 channel wiring, how does this look?

    I dont want to cheap out and have the wiring be the downfall to my system. How does this stuff look to you guys?

    I'm hooking my tweets to channels 1&2 and my woofers to channels 3&4. Amp does 75x4.

    I would consider these.
    Knukonceptz product detail for KRYSTAL KABLE 4 CHANNEL 6M TWISTED PAIR RCA CABLE

    I love my set. For 75 w the 16 gauge should be good.
    Are you going for SQ?

    Ok, I'll take a look at those RCAs.

    I'm not especially going for SQ, but I do have Focals so I do want them to be able to shine. But the amp I have is really not a SQ amp (but hey, it was free and it's brand new) so I'm not going TOOO big into SQ at the moment. But I do want to get good cables so that when/if I do get a nicer 4 channel the cables wont be holding back anything from the rest of the system.

    I took a look at those RCAs... Man those things look sweet! I like how they have four in one, instead of buying two sets. Can't go wrong with 4 levels of shielding!

    Get the good RCA's IMO.
    If you plan to do a SQ setup later... this

    I just placed an order for those yesterday. A lot of people will tell you it's not necessary but I do it anyway.

    I know it will up the cost of the build but I am always paranoid about signal loss...

    fyi op you dont need an sq amp to have an sq system. you can always install a processor or an eq to fix the sound quality problems in your car...



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    KNU makes great products. I use them nearly exclusively.

    If you are a little crazy like I am... I even buy the subwoofer rca's instead of the regular ones for my bass amp... I don't know why they aren't easier to find on their page, I have to use the search bar to find them:
    http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...prodID=KRY1.8M
    http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...prodID=KRY1.4M

    Just options.

    depends on your budget. you can get a rockford fosgat 3sixty.2, the rockford fosgate 3sixty.3 that just came out, the alpine imprint pxe-h6600, audison bit one, jbl ms-8, they are all great, just depends on what you wanna spend.

    Is one if those necessary if I already have a pretty nice HU? And how would it make a difference, because it wouldnt change the THD of the amp or signal to noise ratio.

    they are good if you are looking to work on every aspect of your system. you can change the crossover points, and change the level that each frequency plays(also known as an eq), the ms-8 and the alpine imprint do these things automaticly.

    Yeah, but what would be the point of it if the amp introduces THD? And if it introduces some noise into the signal (75dB signal to noise ratio)?
