I have a question on those multi-channel RCAs that a few companies make - Stinger [what I'm buying], Monster Cable, Streetwires, etc. They generally look like they're one cable or bunched cables for most of the length, but split up in the multiple leads at either end.

How long are those leads, typically? Six inches? 8?

I'm asking because depending on how I install my amps, those leads at the end won't be long enough if the amps are installed side-by-side and the RCA jacks are a foot or more apart.

kthx

You've got a problem. What amp are you using? I had a DLS A4 with inputs on opposite sides and I had to rip open my Knu cables to get them to reach. Stingers are about 5" from the splitter. Same with JL I think. Basically multi-channel cables are a horrible idea of you need to go to multiple amps or an amp with inputs on opposite sides.

I have old PPi Art Series amps. If I stacked them, all the connections would be close and a multichannel cable would work. If I put them side-by-side... obviously not.
