So what cable do you use to connect your head --> cab? What is you favorite cable?
Home Depot brand 14 guage speaker/lamp cord. Switchcraft jacks.
Just to be sure I froze the cord and hung it vertically so I could get all the copper grain flowing in one direction....(the following phrase was meant sarcastically , but the first sentence is 100% true).
Inexpensive and good.
I have been using the Evidence Audio Siren for a few months and been very happy.
Home Depot 16 guage zip cord here, too. No problems with it, and it's black & red, so no doubt about which is hot, which is ground.
I've tried the Monster cable, the expensive speaker cable from other manufacturers, and at the end of the day, 100 feet of 16 guage zip wire for $20 is a completely acceptable speaker wire.
I have used a bunch including home made, but the Mulder cable is the finest by a long shot. It has been one of the best $ to performance ratio items I ever put in my rig.
I am currently using Monster Cable 11 gauge Canare is next on the list. Absolute Sound (the high end stereo freaks - people that spend more on a cables than most of spend for our boutique amps) actually have give good reviews on Radio Shack 16 gauge lamp cord and they or Stereophile now recommend Home Depot orange and black power cords for speaker cables. I think they are 12 gauge cables. Just cut off the ends and wire them up.
I have a Vans Evers Blue Nile which I like.
Evidence Audio Siren is the best one I have, and a close second is the new Bayou speaker cable.
Bayou Cables speaker cable. Never happier.
As long as it's big enough and made out of copper it's not a big deal. 14 gauge zip cord works fine.
Carol Cable 14-2 SJ00W available at (where else) Home Depot. Heavy duty jacket resists everything you will find in a bar.....
Another Evidence Audio Siren user here too.
VoodooAmps 50/50 speaker cable... tight & detailed.
I make my own using Kimber with Neutrik plugs.. Also have used vacuum cleaner cord , looks to be 16 gauge with Switchcraft jacks and worked very good as well.
This stuff work well inside cabs too?
+1 on the yellow Carol stuff for extension cables :AOK
another +1 for 16ga zipcord inside cabs
