all of the above. I got the the amp kit, 4 channel rcas, 2 channel rcas, and 100ft of speaker wireAt half price, maybe. Are we talking RCAs or speaker wire?
I went from very cheap RCAs to some semi-high end and I have a slight reduction in noise but there's also a section where my power runs next to my RCAs. Had I run the wires correctly I probably would not have noticed a difference. I *think* there was a very small difference in the upper end of the tweeters' response but it's so small it could just be my ears.
As for wire, I used Knu wire, seems to be a good bang for the buck. You get high quality wire at a reasonable price (basically the same price as a local Home Depot would charge). IMO there's not much to be gained from the cheapest to the best speaker wire as long as it's the right size.
Just goes to show that there are not always a lot of noise problems.Power cable won't have much different, since the amp's power section will filter out the noise..
As for RCAs, you need to transfer "clean" signals from point A to B.... I'm using CAT6 network cable and it is as good as some $**** silver plated RCAs... And it only cost me $10 to construct a 4 channel RCA...
Well, I almost used CAT5 in the first place, and it was cheaper than CAT6... What I like CAT6 is because it is shielded and twisted.... Just more on try and error and I also never think that it do sounds better than silver plated RCAs....Just goes to show that there are not always a lot of noise problems.
Cat 5 is twisted pair and frequency response is not bad. However, twisted pair only provides noise immunity if and only if both inputs and outputs are balanced! It is quite common in pro audio setups where very long microphone runs are used, and of course lan connections! So in that majority of car installs twisted pair does not provide noise immunity... If someone disagrees please correct me with appropriate technical references.
Glad that it works for you!
As for Monster, they dont make bad products but are full of marketing hype. In a world of commodity cable thats the only way to be able to support high profit margins.
