HiFi Audio Cable Suggestions

Hello I'm in the process of planning a SQ build for my 2000 Buick Regal. I'm interested in low-impedance Focal component speakers and will be getting an amplifier to match.

I understand the quality of components including the wires matters but I know very little here.

What would you suggest I look for among the highest quality range of wiring? Any suggestions?
(I'd also like to know the names of the connectors I'd need to buy along with. I don't know what they're called.)

Update: I found these, are they any good?

Elite 14/2 Speaker Wire Cable, 14AWG/2-Conductor, UL Listed, CMR/CL3R, (Riser/In-Wall & Outdoor/In-Ground (Direct Burial)- 100% Oxygen Free Pure Bare Copper (OFC), 100ft Bulk Cable (105 strands) Black

Any suggestions and/or help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

I made mine because i wanted them to be an
Exact length, plus I already had the wire and ends but i agree with miniSQ. There’s no reason to spend crazy money but don’t buy complete garbage either, or use the freebies that come with stuff.

If you want to make them planet waves has an easy solution but it’s not cheap. Roughly $6.50 per end and a $1.30 per foot of wire. So do the math on that and it can add up quick compared to some good quality pre-made cables.

Actually I’ll do some math so a 5’ 2 ch rca cable from waves would be $39 and for example this 17’ stinger is $20.

It all depends on whats more important to you (cables cut to the perfect length/or cheaper and easy but you will most likely have some excess wire to deal with) but I highly doubt you’ll hear any difference between the 2.
