    need help with RCA cables for my subs

    Ok, a while back I bought some not so great RCA cables (which was my first mistake) and now the terminals are cmoing off the wires them self. Now, I would like to get a new set because now only one of my subs are working. I have 2 12" MA Audio Subs and a MA Audio 6 channel Amp.

    Whats a good quality RCA cable without going over board on price? and where can I buy a set?

    If you want to buy online, www.knukonceptz.com

    RCA's from Wal-Mart will also work just fine.

    How long you need? I can get some premium RCA's from NXG for pretty cheap prices. Ask around, they're freaking awesome... THICK sheilding, and extremely durable construction. I guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

    Let me know legnths and I'll get you prices shipped.

    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    I got a few sets of StreetWires RCA's off of ebay. Look to be good quality built RCA's.

    A meter is roughly 3 feet. Measure out your car and see about how long you'll need. My guess is the 3M, but you may want to do the 4M just to be safe.

    Twisted pairs are supposed to reject AC noise a little better, but I've never had that help any more than full sheilding... if anything it helped the noise in some cases. Full sheilding is much better.

    ok, so how much would it be for 4m? my zip is 07011

    i would just go for full sheilding

    and what colors can you offer?



    let me know because I'm looking to buy soon!

    You have a problem in your installation independent of the cables...I've had the same set of Knukonceptz RCAs in 2 cars for over 4 years and never had a problem.
