you can, but having 3 channels that close together *MAY* result in noise.

$40 for a set of RCA's is a tad expensive anyway.

What, gold plated oxygen free 5M long leads for $20 each (that's a pair) and it includes an amp remote trigger wire. Then get two pairs of the $14 5M leads (no trigger wire).

$19.95

$14.35


I pity the people that think getting monster cable, that has each copper atom aligned to mecka, and hardwood volume knobs actually make a difference.

The biggest problem with running a multi core cable like that is splitting the shield at the ends for each plug.

not really an issue given that it's only signal thats being transmitted over them

i resoldered an RCA i broke :oops:

was takign it outta a mates car and the guy that installed it used about 20 cable ties and tied it along a factory loom, accidently slit a chunk outta the RCA when i was cutting the cable ties.. resoldered it, made the shielding match up again, sq is perfect :D (then again its for my subs)

the plugs are a ball breaker to hook up after. I would just buy them it will save you heaps of stuffing around.
