Don't do it all with coaxial cable. It will pass signal they way you described but it will also pass all kinds of noise. You need some type of shield to act as a drain not a noise inducer.

Just because I have 2000+ posts doesn't mean I have learned anything.

Thanks.

I actually looked up price for cable and Gepco is only $.18 /ft compared the $.88/ ft for Belden Coax, so that made my decision much easier.

However, I just remembered that I will have to build a digital cable to go from BT receiver to DSP. Should I use Gepco for that as well or would coax be fitting for that application?

They're not RCAs, but I built a couple 3.5mm aux cables to get an idea of how the sleeve I got would look.

Turned out pretty good and I think I'll be using the yellow/black for my RCAs when I do the false floor. Now to figure out a color for the speaker wires and power cables.

Gepco 61801EZ, 550 Paracord, Rean NYS231BG connectors


Gepco 61801EZ, 550 Paracord, VizGiz (Amazon) connectors


The gold seems out of place, but it matches the SO's phone case and will likely be plugged into the glovebox anyway.

Default Re: Making RCA Cables

Ok, so i’d like to get my cables exact length for my install and will be attempting to make my own thanks to this thread.

I was thinking about using RG59 mini coax with compression fittings for ease. My only concern is the grounding. Reading through the thread I learned that when using the mic cable I would need to float the ground, but in a coax I don’t think there is a way to do that, so is it necessary? Would it be detrimental? Should I just go the route of using mic cable and soldering up my connectors?

Thanks everyone for making a great thread!

Coax cable is not grounded unless you send it through a grounding block. And on one end, you could try to remove the shielding to float it but the way coax connectors push down into the cable, that might not be possible.

Since I made my cables and decided it was no longer worth it I've just cut the cables I purchased to length and re-soldered the connectors. Still looks factory and only takes a couple minutes.
