    Default Speaker cable elevators arrived...pics

    These make my speakers sound more like speakers costing $463,231.16/pr. But seriously, for $5.35/ea, what's to lose?

    wicked right? I'm the man. Look at that cable management, makes my petey firm.

    look at that organization
    I wanna increase the population
    I'm filled with elation
    I'm the 70's generation
    killin all the static
    I'm an audio fanatic
    ordered with my plastic
    they arrive, I'm superspastic
    listening to the tunes
    they make you wanna swoon
    but hey it's my room
    so hop yo ass on your broom
    and anti-static your own room!

    word to ya mothah.

    So would that tweak be called elevator music?
    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks
    Ben

    oooh, 1awg or so. No seriously, The 8TC's pictured are 9awg (each wire) equivalant for comparison purposes.

    There are enthusiasts that actually do collect old line isolators of various makes and material construction. You may find them in antique stores as well. The history of them is directly related to the time they were manufactured, purpose and geographical use which is nerdly interesting if you like antiques. Just a nugget.

    Sure is a clean looking lay out. It is hard to tell from the pics but are the power cables well distanced from the speaker wires?

    Some Canadians tape the wires to used hockey pucks instead.
    It's a great way to help the environment by reducing the number of used pucks thrown into the landfills.

    Nice and clean looking Steve. Jeez it looks like you used a 'T' square.

    They do have a cool factor. Any improvement in SQ?

    This is true, they should be shot with a hockey stick. Goals don't count when they're thrown.
    But isn't using them for cable elevators a great idea, eh?
