View Full Version : Coax for audio cable???

I have a bunch of RG6 coax and was wondering if I put RCA crimp ends on it and made custom length cable, would they work? I wanted to replace my existing cheap audio cables (red, white, yellow). Any thoughts???

Of course you could do that and probably get better result if cable you are using is one those flimsy thin kind. But RG-6 coax cables tend to be extremely thick and non flexible (as you have noticed). RG-59 coax cable probably will be more ideal in term of convince and flexibility, but if you have RG-6 cable laying around, then go head :)
