Pretty sure the Redco stuff is Polyolefin, the PVC shrink is usually less common. Otherwise, you can pick some up off eBay, Wirecare, Cable Organizer, etc.

Are Female connectors as easy to put on wire as male connectors?

(sorry kinda a newb question.)

was looking to order about 10ft of star-quad from markertek.
Cable price $4.90
Shipping: $11.36

YIKES!

needless to say I did not order. I am looking for a couple feet for my 231 mini plugs. Anyone got a place that doesn't stiff you on shipping?

you check redco's shipping? i think they have pretty decent shipping costs.
post #937 of 1010
Redco shipping was almost identical to Markertek for Nor Cal. It IS a few dollars cheaper though and they ship using priority mail so you might as well.

Bad news. When I wiggle the cable connecting to the Sennehisers the sounds cuts off sometimes.

I guess I will need to order another set of cardas connectors.

Here's my parts list thus far.
Neutrik USA Inc Neutrik NTP3RC and NTP3RC-B 3.5mm Audio Plug 3.5, 2.5mm Mini Connectors at Markertek.com

Canare Corporation Of America Canare L-4E6S Star Quad Micophone Cable Bulk Audio Cable at Markertek.com

Amazon.com: Techflex PTN0.38BK50 3/8"x50' Black Flexo Pet Sleeving: Industrial & Scientific

I'm just wondering what heat shrink tubing I should get from here Parts & Accessories Heat Shrink Tubing at Markertek.com

Should I worry about the type of solder on I use? I know my brother has some that he uses on pinball machines and such, so that should be fine, i think...

This will be my first time making a interconnect so I just wanna make sure I got my bases covered!

Thanks!

You may need to drill out the entry hole to that plug a little bit to fit the cable, but someone else probably knows more than I.

Can anyone confirm this? if so, will it affect the structural integrity of the plug?

grrr... looks as if this thread gets ignored...

yeah your going to want to remove the rubber at the bottom of the RA neutrik plug. i would recommend getting some adhesive heatshrink for that area after the cable is connected to the plug though for additional strain relief.
