Suggestions on RCA cables pease!

Recommended Posts

Hope this is the right section.

Been looking over RCA and my god there are so many.   The few that im looking at right now are as followed. 

RCA's are another subject i know almost nothing about so i thought i would make a thread about it while i do research, work at the information from both ends.  

 

Crutchfield Reference 2-Channel RCA Patch Cables

23.99  for 17 Foot.

Crutchfield Reference 2-Channel RCA Patch Cables Front

 

Sky High Car Audio Premium 2-Channel RCA

35 dollars for 17 foot.

Sky High Car Audio Premium 2-Channel RCA 1.5ft-20ft

 

 

 

AMAZON basics have some gold plated ones for 9,99.

 

 

I was just gonna use the base knob that came with my AMP,  but a bad ass bass knob would be cool.   So i would need a 3 foot RCA from deck to knob then like 12 feet from that to back amp??

Does RCA get affected by the length like power wire? Am i wanting to keep them short as posable?  

 

Any suggestions on RCA, what kind i should get, or if the cheapest ones are good enough would be great.

I never had any issues with any of my SHCA ones except being so tight on the amp that it broke the shielding on the amp side once, but that could have been poor amp QC. I wouldnt go for the cheapest set on amazon, as cheap can sometimes be indicative of quality, as in poor soldering or a thick jacketed cable with two strands of copper. You could always try your hand at building your own as well. Plenty of "how-to's" out there. Maybe not the cheapest option, but not going to break the bank either, and you get to ensure the quality is to your liking.

Thanks, guys, just wanted some input as i found out alot of there fuse holders break.

 

I do love the look of the skyhigh ones also.  

 

Any suggestions on if i should use the base knob with the amp, or buy an RCA one?

If so what length RCA cables would you suggest,  3 foot and 12 foot?  Its gonna go in a Chevy Tahoe behind 2and row seats.

I prefer an RCA style knob myself, i use the PAC LC-1. As for lengths, that's a decision best made by measurements. Use string or extra wire laying around and decide where and how you want to mount everything, and measure the string or what have you to determine the length needed.

Theres another version from skyhigh for half the price,   16 bucks for 12 feet.    Is the Copper Braiding over 100% of conductors needed on the Premium version?
