Good rubber shrinking job haha. Anyway i have a question for the experts. For subwoofer interconnect, is the digital coaxial 75ohm suitable for the job?

Also does anybody knows where to get good RCA connector in pasar road?

Actually I am interested in a shorter version of the minijack to minijack interconnect, that 7" cable looks very cute and practical for portable usage. Mind sharing how hard it is to DIY it?

er.. not that hard also
but have to cut the wire just nice, cannot too long, cannot too short, as too long, the metal caps will not be able to screw in. too short, cannot solder nicely.
and.. while soldering., needs some times to heat up the terminal so that the it can stick on the terminal, but doing it slightly too long will also MELT the cable rubber coat.
sort of, u have to do it accurately, and fast.
well it's in my case.
perhaps i will switch to lower power soldering gun to do it again.
by the way, wanna buy one? as i will make one for ifer too. and tomorrow i will go to search for the parts again. and COD with ifer at saturday.

i hav found source for some neutrik right-angled mini plugs. but the holes ar too small for Canare L-4E6S to fit. anyone has any recommendations? a salesman told me about Canare 2-conductor cable (forgot the model). is it good? if 2-conductor how to connect them becoz the plugs got 3 conductors?

hyyam85 : by the way, i am feeling weired, why there's a lot ppl using L-4E6S for a stereo connection.. while L-4E6S have 4 pole connector + screen = 5 connection in total. what we need is only 3 for stereo plug.
i had bought couple meters of L-2T2E (forgot the accurate mode) but it's two pole inside + 1 screen.

what i am thinking, is that ppl use L4e6S because in future they can upgrade it to RCA?
and i found out some ppl don't even use the screen ( metal sleeve inside wire) for ground channel in L4e6s, they just use the 4 wire inside, connect each channel one, and ground x2.

by the way, i am thinking selling some of cable.

interested ppl can check here out

Err really pure silver wire kah? From Standwell right? Its not pure silver ler, just silver coated. Using this wire for interconnect hmm, too fragile laa.
