Hey guys, I need some very short RCA cables. Short like 6 or 8 inches. Any Idea where I might find some? I guess I could make some but have no idea where to get the wire.

Thanks for your input over the last several days...I've been out of the stereo game for a long time and you are helping me get back up to speed!

Any stereo shop should have them. The shortest I have personnaly obtained were 10 or 12 inches. I know that Custom auto sounds, in N. Aurora carries short RCA's, and places like Tweeter probably carry them as well. I'll take a look in my spare parts box and see if I still have mine, also.

If you are good with a soldering iron, it is very easy to make shorter ones with a longer set. Get the connectors at the rat shack, cut too the desired length, and solder away. The sheilded cable inner conductor can be very fragile in some cheaper wires, and be sure not to use too much heat or the inner insulator will short against the plug.
