So my plan, drain connected at HU side, not at dsp input side. Drain connected to the dsp output side, not at amp side. Correct?

Sorry for the noob questions, first time making rcas.

Default Re: Making RCA Cables

You don't want to lay an actual twist in the wire, you should be able to hold one end and toss the Wire where it should go and it will lay flat... Presumably the female end so you can toss it at the snake.

EDIT: Okay so I can grab a few items from Redco and get to soldering, I guess.

Gepco 61801 EZ Cable
Neutrik NYS 352G Connectors
1/8" Techflex
Heatshrink (what size?)

Anything else?

And, very importantly, I need a few Y cables. What's different about making those? I'm just digging into this thread so please forgive me if this has been answered.

You are probably going to want to pick up the Y-Pants boot covers. Y-splitter is straight forward: Drain wires to drain wires, Black wires to black wires, and red wires to red wires.... Just make sure that you insulate each set of solder conections so that they don't touch. Slip on you Y-pants and you're ready to solder the lines on to some rca's.

Default Re: Making RCA Cables

I want to make:

Stereo mini plug (male 3.5mm)------->stereo RCAs

So, with this stereo mini plug connector, what cable would be good to use to go to (2) Rean(Neutrik) NYS373 connectors?

I'm using Gepco EZ Wire for the rest of my interconnects.

Double up on the EZ cable? Star quad cable? Something else? What makes the most sense?




EDIT: This Gepco cable?

Default Re: Making RCA Cables

Sorry to bring this back up but I wanted to add my contributions. For strain relief I used pharmed tubing. Put heat shrink over that, soldered on my plugs, heat shrink again, then screwed on the ends.







Not done yet but it will be a 6 channel cable when done. Without the pharmed tubing the wires were too thin to use the set screw and it didn't feel right. I lucked out that the tubing that I had for work was the right size internally and externally for my application.

Thanks for bumping this Dave...I forgot to add the ones I made using this tutorial too:







I made one, but made a couple of noob mistakes, so then I made two more. Tested them on my home system and they work great, plus I love the way they look.

Yours look great. I wish I had a home system to test mine on but I gave away my home theatre to my brother in law. Best gaming surround sound system ever now.

Default Re: Making RCA Cables

This may seem like a really dumb question, but can I use Stinger 5 conductor Speedwire to make my RCA's? I know there is really zero shielding but would it work? I already got some Gepco 61801EZ Wire for my RCA's but I got an awesome deal on 100' of the Speedwire ($19.99 a roll). I'm just curious. Thanks all!!

You can use it, but it's not an ideal solution. Speed Wire is just a bunch of 18g remote wire bundled together in a common jacket. There's no outer braided conductor to function as a shield for noise rejection, so the potential for induced noise is much higher.

This falls in the category of something you can do, but probably shouldn't.

Thank you, Onyx!! I was thinking the same but was hopeful. I'll stick to the Gepco & Canare Wire instead.

HA, HA, guys! Sorry Emperor, I did not mean to insinuate that your info wasn't educated. To be honest, I hadn't even seen your post when I typed what I typed. Seeing it now, thank you for your help. All of this info sounds pretty damned educated to me! Also, short and sweet is the only way I prefer to garner info/experience!!
