    Default Random DIY Speaker Cable Karma

    All right, so I was trying to play around with making my computer system sound better. I got some Audioengine A5s and thought I would make a nice speaker cable to connect them (using this great method)
    The cable is 3 feet long, made using Canare 4S11 speaker cable with the blue jeans cable bananas soldered onto the ends of the cables using Cardas Quad-Eutectic solder. They are covered with the Clean cut flame retardant Techflex (because it looks cool), and shrink wrap for overall spiffiness ;)
    The problem is that the A5s can’t accept bananas. I do not want to try and take the cable apart, so I have one 3 ft speaker cable in need of a good home. I will of course pay shipping.

    To sweeten the deal, if you need a 2nd cable to match, I will build it for you for just the cost of the Canare 4S11, Bananas, and shipping to me. I have the rest of the stuff, and I will make the cable, and ship it to you, for free. That way you have a matched set of cables…

    So, simply say you are in and I will draw a winner on Tuesday night. Whoever wins can tell me if they want me to make another one or not…
