    Monster Cable M1 Sonic Reference Series (Overkill?)

    I was wondering what you guys thought about the Monster Cable M1 Product.

    I was about start researching the recommended gauge for my new build and I remembered I have a set of Monster M1 from a previous Eosone home theater project.

    These things are 10-12' long, I guess I was thinking the longer the run the more signal loss....Maybe my satellite installing days are overshadowing my judgment

    I'm installing an eD 13av.2 to a Nakamichi Mono block running 1200W RMS @ 1ohm



    I also have the Monster X-terminator banana connectors as well.

    Should I consider adding a banana patch panel to my Starr Mountain Enclosure when it arrives for easy plug unplug or are the screw down connectors going to be the recommended choice for a better mechanical connection?

    Should I be using a run of this since I have it on hand?

    Will I be defeating the purpose of using a nice run of speaker wire if I don't use something as good for my connection from the sub itself into the back of the speaker wire patch cable on the inside of the box?

    What should I run here?

    I have another 10' run of the M1 but I have a feeling that's not what I should be putting in the box too.
    I'll already have a 60lb. woofer in there and extra 10lbs and 10' of wire prob isn't needed for a 2' connection from sub to wiring plate.

    Thanks for you input.

    Increasing wire length does increase resistance. Nice HT wires, though.

    I have my own standard for speaker wire but I don't pick it based on advertised sonic benefits. Make sure the gauge is adequate for the power vs the length of the run, plus a durable yet flexible jacket makes it a lot easier to install throughout the vehicle. I'm guessing since you have such speaker wires in your possession you've already drank the koolaid, so do whatever floats your boat.

    lol.....I drank no Kool-Aid. And I didn't buy the wires they were given to me by a friend.

    I'm just here looking for some constructive advice from forum members interested in helping people understand car audio better.
