Wow. Looks great.

Can you share how you did the weaving?

post #13863 of 13875

Or did You mean FrozenPanda SE215 recabling on previous page?

Make sure you quote what post you're referring to, "Wow. Looks great." applies to most of the stuff posted here.

I used 16 strands of solid copper that I sheathed individually with #1 paracord in both red and black (that part took the longest) and then weaved them together using a cross-whip weave style I picked up after studying pictures of Jena Labs speaker cables.  I began with all the red on one side and the black on another, and ended the same way.  I think it turned out pretty good, and it sounds great.

 

Although, to be honest, this was just a proof-of-concept.  I've never woven (or braided, for that matter) anything before this, nor had I ever soldered anything.  This one is really just a temporary solution.  I learned a lot making this cable, and will probably make another, more permanent solution using silver wire and higher-quality RCA plugs.

 

 

 

 

My little boy was holding the end of the cable in this picture.  He really wanted to help out!

 

 

The cables connected to my current setup (I'm a teacher, and this is on the desk in my classroom.)

 

 

 

 

My bad. lol.

I was refering to this post by Sean.

How was the weaving done?

I want to try also.

do you have to remove the rubber skin of the cord and then slide that in? or thats big enough to just slide right in?

 

I also have a non tangle type of cord (slim sata cable like) along with a stardard rubber sleeved replacement cable on the X1, will that fit into the cord or do I have to peel the skins off?

post #13867 of 13875

I used Van Damme Pro Grade Classic XKE Pro-Patch cable which has smaller outer diameter 4.85mm. I was also hoping that I could just slide paracord over it but no, You have to remove "rubber skin". And there`s little trick how to sleeve easy. pull out littlebit paracord inside lines (usually white), glue them to the end of cable with superglue and just start pulling from the other side of paracord from inside white lines.

Ha I knew you would! 

post #13871 of 13875

Ya, I tried the same kinda thing... turned out nothing like that. All the more impressive to see such clean work!

Practice my friend. Just a year ago I was a total noob when it came to making cables, but now I have my own techniques and maybe just a little more patience. Haha

Thread Starter 

It's been far too long since I've posted in this thread. Thanks for all the wonderful entries that everyone has contributed! 

 

Here's one of my latest builds, it features an Oyiade rhodium plated mini connector, two Vampire gold plated RCAs, Cardas 19.5 gauge internally litzed wires, Cardas Quadeutectic solder, nylon multifilament, and paracord. I built it for my dining room system which consists of a DIYTube Budgie SE amplifier, a pair of Boston speakers and an ipod. 

 

 

Everyone keep up the great work! :D

First time building cables. Bought a neutrik 6.3mm jack for my new cable. Pretty simple looking but has a great quality feel to it. Next challenge is to make the y-split.
