What would you suggest would be the best line of RCA cable to get?

I'm looking at KnuKonceptz (big fan of their products) and they have 6 different catorgery. I'm kind of on a budget. I just want something that'd be worth my money, thus the reason why I chose to go with KnuKonceptz. But which one =(

I'm a cheap bastard, so I say the eKo. The only RCAs I'd go with over the low end lines are the Rockford Fosgate RCAs twisted pair that have the third dummy cable in between so the wires cross each other 90 degrees to cut noise.


EDIT: I'd say as long as they have a warranty, get the eKo. All the RF cables are twisted pair but they cost more.

Well only reason I say I'm on a budget is because I have to buy 3 separate lines, in which I assume has to be 6meters long.

Karma SS or Krystal is what I use. Going dirt cheap when it comes to RCAs is stupid. Get something decent and eliminate some headaches

better 3 feet too long than 6 inches short...

If you need 6 meters then I guess the Karma SS are the ones you need. Not bad for RCAs at less than $15 a pair. I've never ran Knu but for what it's worth I've seen and heard them and I haven't heard any complaints.

I will be going with the http://www.knukoncep...stal RCA Kables

Hmm. I wonder if it would be bad to mixmatch them.I am currently using the ones that came with the KOL-AK44 Knu Kit from 2007 (Have no idea which RCA it came with).

The eko is junk, klarity is junk, krystal is alright but not a good rca by a longshot. Those are the only three i've owned, krystal is still in my car but i dont like them.

What makes them junk and how have they failed you to make you consider them junk?

I have had every knu rca set. I also hate the eko and klarity. Mine failed on me fast. They did not sound the greatest by any means. I switched out rcas to a different brand and it was a night and day difference in sound and quality.

Clip city bitch, clip clip city bitch. 10's, 12's, 15's, goin up in flames bitch.

I've been running the krystal rca for at least 2yrs now and I haven't had a problem with them since. Please describe what exactly don't you like about them or what you think is terribly wrong with them that makes them not good by a long shot ?

Yeah, I'm trying to go full KnuKnoceptz Wiring in my vehicles, I honestly don't know why. Maybe I like to represent their products in the future.

Knukonceptz is cheap, but it does the job right, it may not be the best on the market quality wise, but damn, it does what it's suppose to do.

Just personal experience. Not a fan of Knus rcas. I've ran tons of their power and speaker wire as well as 3 or 4 types of their rcas. Just didn't like them. One a end broke off for no reason, the other I didn't like the wire, pinched easy and turned hard over time making it hard to reroute if needed. Currently I'm running all monster rcas and haven't had a issue. Thinking about switching to shok cable's rcas to try.
