I wanna start making cables...not sure where to start...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Just for myself...not trying to start a business venture. I'd like to start with a mini to mini and a LOD for my portable setup, move up to a new cable for my desktop speakers since the cable for them is failing, maybe recable my headphones, whatever else...it looks like fun, something cool looking and to show off, and even a little sound improvement is definitely bonus. I pretty much get the how to...it's just the materials to use. Not copper vs silver or any of that, just the what cables are suitable to use, where to get wire, sleeving, connectors, ect. If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

The easiest answer is going to some place like Home Depot and looking in the electrical section - they will have all sorts of bulk wire. There's also various electrical suppliers online and computer mod places might have some neat options for sleeving.

Parts Express should also have a bunch of wires, sleeving, connectors/terminators, etc.  smile.gif

I dunno if they still have the special going on, but the OCC Copper wire at DHC was 40 bucks for 60 feet.

Thanks. Not seeing that deal but they have it for $1.99 per foot.

And with a quick juxtaposition of units, the price goes from $0.67/foot to $1.50/foot.  biggrin.gif
