12ft RCA Plug/Plug M/M Cable - Black

Despite the introduction of more advanced audio and video signal cables, such as HDMI® and Toslink, most audio and a large number of video connections still use the common RCA connector.

This is a single-channel cable with male RCA plugs with molded connector housings and strain relief boots on each end. The cable is ideal for short, low-frequency connections, such as standard audio signals. For higher-frequency signals, such as for RF or composite video, over longer lengths we recommend the use of one of our premium RG-6 or RG-59 based cables.

Can't beat the value

Pros: Price, value, quality, durability.

Cons: None that I can think of.

I'm very happy so far. The big box stores charge easily 15 times what Monoprice charges for a similar quality cable. No issues with quality or buzzing from my subwoofer. I'd definitely buy another one if I needed it.

Subwoofer hum

Pros: Cheap, lightweight

Cons: Induces subwoofer hum

I now see others have had the same problem as me with subwoofer hum. I'm not terribly disappointed, I should have read the reviews or found a cable with heavier shielding.

cheap, no or low shielding, breaks

Pros: cheap, probably ok for a digital signal
effectively disposable, at this price not worth anyone's time to do an RMA when it breaks

Cons: bad shielding
poor construction
end of inside connection may pull off when removing cable

Got one of these to hook up a subwoofer, has had bad hum, especially when the main receiver is off, ever since I hooked it up. put up with it because it was not too noticeable when the tv was on. Then later when moving some stuff around, pulled the cable to disconnect from sub-woofer and the central pin (just a metal bit over plastic) pulled loose, remaining in the sub-woofer and leaving a plastic core sticking out of the end of the cable connector. getting that out is going to be a pain, fortunately I have good needle nose pliers, or if it comes to it, tiny forceps.

Would not recommend. Will replace with better quality 'paired' cable since there are no good quality single cables available.

it hums

Pros: Cheap, lightweight and flexible.

Cons: Hums when hooked up to my subwoofer, probably due to a lack of shielding.

I bought 3 of these and they all exhibit the same hum with my subwoofer.
Humming did not happen when using one channel of a no-name stereo RCA cable of the same length.
Not sure if shipping costs make these worth RMA-ing...

I'm not a believer in expensive audio cables, but these are really bad.

Pros: Works, and is long

Cons: Weak connectors. Poor shielding, especially for the length. Breaks if you stare at it too long.

not worth it
