HiFi Audio Cable Suggestions

1588 Views 24 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  crxsir121
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!

If I had to do them again, I would use Amphenol or a connector similar with extra crimping points.
I had two cables that needed the crimp point really pushed in for a good connection.
The Neutrik only has one on each side; if you're doing a sharp angle, the extra grip helps keep the rca in place.
If you go this route, get more cable and connectors than you need( I learned that the hard way).
