I bought some nice and thick RCA cables for my sub woofer runs in my theater build. A few weeks back, I decided to run basically 3 subwoofer cables. The first one I know I will use, but the other two I would like to tie together with a RCA Y-Adapter/Splitter so that I can connect them both up to the second subwoofer out on my receiver, but only use one of them.
I know, it sounds strange, but since I am not sure if the 2nd sub will go behind my screen like the first one, or off to the side of the room at a completely different location, I want to wire them both up for more flexability in installation.
Anyway, here is a link to one of the sub cables I have: Monoprice RCA Sub Cable
I was looking at splitters and need one that is 1 Male to 2 Female, but all I seem to find are the really skinny (and cheap) ones. I don't want to have the splitter be the chink in my armor so to speak. I mean, you wouldn't run 12 gauge wire to your front speakers just to use a one foot, 18 gauge connection from the wall plate to the receiver, right?
I thought about using one of these connectors, but it gets in the way of the other speaker connections on the wall plate. I would need to buy it plus a smaller single M-to-M RCA cable to extend it away from the wall plate...
Oh, it needs to be flexible too since it will be connected up inside the wall cavity and connect the 2 "second sub" runs to the wall plate I have. I also don't want to spend some ridiculous amount of money if at all possible.
