I hardly ever hear much talk about speaker cables yet they are major part of the chain and a part where, if one had a lousy cable, could actually ruin your amp. Before I fire up any of my amps, I always check the speaker cables to make sure they are in properly but I dont replace them very often and I dont think Ive ever seeked out a high end cable like I have with instrument cables. Obviously they dont get banged and twisted around as much but considering the potential disasters that could happen with a faulty cable running from an amp into a speaker cab I wonder what other safe and reliable speaker cables people use and whether pro players tape the cables to the back of the speaker in case they pop out or come loose. Ive always been a bit nervous because I once accidently blew up a mates very cool Galien Kruger bass amp because he was using an ancient speaker cable held loosely together with gaff tape. The cable died on the night he lent it to me and as a result I smoked that amp beyond repair.
