Premium RCA Plug
This premium RCA plug features a gold plated connector tip, a metal connector body, and is perfect for professional installers or home theater enthusiasts who want to make their own custom length, premium RCA cables. It is designed for use with coaxial RG6 cabling. The connection must be soldered. It measures about 1.8" long from the base to the end of the tip and about 0.5" in diameter.
I thought about getting some of the 1.5 ft already made cables from monoprice for $2.28 each and then dismantling those because it would be cheaper. However, I didn't do this and don't recommend it either. Those might be potted up with silicone or something (I don't really know) so why bother to fight all that when you can just buy these ready to use?
PROS: Good quality for a great price. I put these in my hi fi setup using silver wire and although I don't have any $80 a piece German made WBT connections to compare it to, I feel like I'm getting all my music through the system.
CONS: Can't buy them color coded.
Probably not made out of copper. The specs don't say what.
The instructional video on this website for this product is not the way to do it. If you're going by that, you're going to mess it up. I doubt that guy in the video actually finished the job the way he was going. It never did show him do it just strip the wire and then fiddle with all of it.
Don't strip the center conductor 1/2" like it shows. Only about 1/8 to 3/16". Also, don't tin the connections first. I know it's normally common practice to do this but in this case don't. Run the ground/shield wire through the hole (leaving it long). Then TRIM, strip and lay the center conductor wire in the center barrel cup and then use some pliers to clamp the connector around the wire. Don't smash it down too much tho. This will hold it all in place very nicely. Now you can solder the connections and cut off the excess. This way won't work as well if you tin it first as the hole and center barrel cup will be filled up with solder.
CONS: Solder it straight or may snap the solder connection when screwing on the barrel.
PROS: Metal, good quality.
Easy to solder.
CONS: I had one with stripped threads on the cover. Make sure you order extras just in case.
