no, because those plugs are just temporary

I didn't order the locking ones when I bought them, he sent the wrong ones but the ones that he sent cost twice as much so I didn't complain. When I get around to it I'm going to order the original ones again that will clamp onto the wire and I can heatshrink as well and I'll swap them out. For now it works fine though, it's not like I'm constantly moving, installing, or removing the cable, I just put it in once and leave it.

I just recabled my SR60's with 20 awg silver coated copper wire, litz braided, and it makes a hell of a difference. Of course, not all the heat shrink I ordered from Parts Express was in stock, so I made do with electrical tape for the time being. I'll have to post a pic when the rest of my order arrives and I finish things up.

I'm sure it will come in handy down the line. I've never seen a front on shot of your custom blue heatshrink, what does it say?

HiGHFLYiN9,

Look at RnB180's photogallery. You can find the link from his signature. There should be one picture revealing the text.

the heatshrink is custom heat shrink I picked up from AV-Cable, I try to make my cables look as professional as possible, and I think custom shrink is LEET.

they were left over from some bi wire cables I sold on ebay about a year ago.
it stopped being fun and I just quit selling anything on ebay altogether. thus the reason why I used blue shrink on such odd ball clashing cable colors, because its left over shrink I never got to use.

I dont want to show the shrink since someone has already tried to report me as a professional vendor or something? (which I am not), Someone sure tried to make it their business to prevent me from posting my cable work and prevent me from even selling my extras to anyone. I think an anonymous seller felt threatened by the cables I was making, never found out who it was. so to avoid all that drama, I just dont post the custom shrink. If any DIYers are interested in customizing your cables with personal shrink, you can get it on the cheap from AVcable.com, I got some for like $11 bucks.

Im a diyer
that sits around on his living room floor and busts out some cables. The photography part is actually the most rewarding!

I did sell a few homegrown speaker cables on ebay a year ago. never took off, I was making literally about 2 dollars an hour :p, I quit very shortly afterwards. I dont own a business, I dont want to start a business, I cant support a business, I dont have any business website, I do not by wholesale bulk, and I do not own a bussiness account with paypal. (for anyone wondering)

then I came across the "how to make a interconnect thread.. last time I soldered was for a short period in high school about 7 years ago. Seeing the potential of creating my own look and aesthetics for cabling and took a leap and bought a rat shack iron and cat 3 cables. Made my first interconnect..

the rest was history.. you can see my work advance in this thread here. I think my cat 3 cable is in here somewhere and and each cable in sucession grew to become more and more complicated. rarely did I repeat any cable more then once.

Ive dropped about a few hudred dollars with this hobby, and now its just too much to keep up with. I will not be ordering any more cables or connectors. I truely feel that Ive already made everything there is possible to make with interconnects, and Im just gonna take a break and focus more on my artwork and PSP

I have a few connectors left over from my IY supplies so Ill probably use them and thats it, no more for me. at least for now

also people wondering why my photographs look so good, no I am not a professional seller hosting pics on photobucket. The photography comes from about 7 years of working with digital imagery, a major in art, creativity, and experience as a web designer and graphics designer in past side jobs

. and no the DIY pages I have link have no relevance to my ability of making a web page.

Edit: Ive been asked do I profit from cables I sell. Im actually in debt a few hundred dollars because of cables, I dont think there is profit when the money from a sale still ends up in negative cash. I have NO real cash at my disposal, does $1900 debt count as profit?

, Im am serious, you shake my wallet and not even a penny falls out, check my pockets and there IS NO money in them. Im just credit spend happy, spending money imaginary money called credit card debt :p
