markertek.com actually does have the TN-MFS, just search for it in part number, then press on the rca link, then go down and look at the options to add to the cart

guys..i have a question...

the Canare L-4E6S. it has 4 conductors... lets just say i was to take out 3 out of the 4 conductors and cut all 3 conductors to about 50cm (half a metre) each.

how long would it roughly be if i were to braid the 3 cables together?

thanks

It depends a lot on the tightness of the braids. I find that a loose braid makes an almost completely insignificant change in the length. A really tight braid might bring it down to closer to 40-45 cm if I remember correctly. I haven't done too much work with braids.
post #1971 of 13931
so basically it means it brings down the length by 1/5th? or sumthin like that?

its a good indication nonetheless... thanks hembergler

would appreciate if anyone else has any answers to my question above.

Here's my first attempt at a home-brewed cable. Made it out of necessity for my newly finished Cmoy.

Mini to Mini -- made from cheap parts i had laying around and some cheapish gold 1/8" plugs from RadioShack.

post #1973 of 13931
Same here, just bought a cmoy (since i couldn't get the parts)... so i needed an interconnector.... mine looks much worse though. Cause i cant find mini plugs, and im just starting out, i want to get used to making ables before i lat down more money...

These are some fat ***** copper cables, the insulation is thin, so there very thick.

Profi power!
Great cables, I've never seen VDC's before

Here is a power cable for my Pimeta:


I also made interconnects using a guide at TNT-Audio:


Here is the "heavy-duty" version:
There was flame-retardant glass-wire available and I had to use it. This stuff - like glass-wool - likes inserting glass-particles into your skin.
Unfortunately I don't use it at the moment because it's too bulky.


Last but not least is a FFRC (Full-Frequency-Range-Cable) from TNT-Audio:
I was hell to make 7 of those (their length ranging from three to 8 metres) and I won't use them on active speakers any more but they're fine.

@ Vadi,

What conectors are you using for the "FFRC" cables, (looks like CAT5 or what ever)... Cuase i would like to make new cables, or re do the cables i got now... and i have the same clip as you for the speaker, and i need a some sort of plug... right now i got some wierd tiny bannana plugs...

Thanks

I didn't use connectors, I just tinned the wires.
post #1980 of 13931
Thats what it looks like, maybe i should do the same...
