Hey guys,

I'm purchasing the rest of my cables etc. this afternoon, and have a question about coaxial cable. As Randy is doing, I'm running a 40 foot one for my subwoofer, and was wondering if there's a difference in coaxial cable quality that I should consider?

For use as a subwoofer cable, is the stuff I can get from my satellite guy, the same as the stuff at say Blue Jean Cables?

Thank you very much.

The stuff Blue Jeans sells, specifically the LC-1 cable is better for unbalanced audio (coax) than anything designed for video or RF. But is the stuff for RF good enough, is Blue Jeans' cable over designed? Perhaps.

Read their article about what went into the design of the LC-1 cable: http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/subwoofer/LC1-design-notes.htm

Cam, if you do decide to close in around the back of the rack simply use a door on the back for access to the gear, providing you have room for the door to open of course. a Solid door would be equal to if not better sound insualtion than the drywall.

Thanks for that info, Chris; I ordered a 40 foot length of their LC-one.

Jay, that's an excellent idea. I've been thinking about it this afternoon, and although Dan's suggestion was great, I unfortunately don't have enough room to slide the wall out. I'll definitely need the back of the cabinet closed in, and I can't see there being enough room for a door.

Your suggestion for a solid door got me thinking that replacing the laundry room door with one would help with the noise.

Thanks

Cam, maybe if you gagged the girls before you tied them in the laundry room, you'd have some peace and quiet?

Does anyone have any experience with Leviton Quickports? I really like them, but I'm trying to get my head around why each little port is so expensive (almost $5 in most cases). I understand connectivity and expansion capabilities, but really, that much money. Are they manufactured really good?

If I was to use them for my hookups, instead of a wall plate with multiple hookups already on it, it'll end up costing me over $100 for the wall plates and connectors.

I'm looking at getting these three.

Thanks

You're paying for customizability. In my experience, something that's molded in place will last through many connects/disconnects longer than these custom pop-in jobbies.

EDIT: The "in my experience" refers to panels that use RJ-45 network jacks.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Great point about longevity, Peter; thanks. I think I'll get one six port for my non speaker cables, and a 7 channel plate for my speaker wire connections. That will save me some coin.

Three shipments of cables ect. came today, and hopefully Monoprice's package will get here tomorrow; then fishing cables and hooking things up this weekend!

I agree with your assessment Peter, I'd rather pay a little more up front and have it right the first time.
