Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs' started by stuffedshirt, Jan 30, 2008.
What are you using?
I have a 3 footer and a 4 footer.
I like having a slight drip loop, so a foot over what reaches.
I got myself a 4-footer recently from Mr. LavaMan.
I like to use a 100 ft cable because I heard it sounds better to have amp and cab separated by a distance.....
If this isn't a joke, you might want to measure
the impedance of your 100ft speaker cable.........
The best possible length for a speaker cable
is as short as possible.
im using a 20ft cable at the moment, and id like to go out to 40ft.
one of our guys at church uses a 55ft lead, to avoid stage spill over.
I use a 6ft cable but I also never have the head sitting on the cab.
The problem with a joke like this is if someone tries it and fries their OT you're not going to take responsibility. Stupid joke plain and simple.
One thing to consider is that to me at least, an amp sounds better maybe 10-12 feet away rather than very close...
From amp to cab a 3ft 14 guage cable.
3 and 6 feet depending on where my cab will be.
He's asking about SPEAKER cables.
Answer: as short as possible.
Long enough to reach the speaker cabinet.
Heavy Hook-up 16ga 0.40160ohms/100 feet
Your output transformer should not be in jeopardy.
16ga 4.016 ohms/1000 ft
Check it out yourselves. Shorter is better, bigger is better but..... Facts?
How much resistance does it take to degrade tone? How fat of a gauge do you recommend for like 25'?
Not goin' down the tone road
Buy a 25 footer and go at it, what you hear is what you get.
I command you to reveal your tone secrets! YOu Must!
I have three foot and six foot cables and wouldn't consider going past 10 feet.
