    Default Looking For Suggestions

    I KNOW THIS IS DUMB BUT STILL WOULD LIKE SUGGESTIONS.

    I know when it comes to high qualty audio and high quality recievers and amps tht you need to keep your wires seperate from each other including not bundleing your speaker wire and also keeping your speaker wire away from your electric wire provideing power to you equipment. but my question is how do you do it all my electric plugs and wires going to my tv and everything else is monotnous back their their is really know way to keep everything seperated from each other and i have to keep all speaker wires matched set/length and if bundleing up my extra speaker wire is going to interfere does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep all my seperates wires electric and audio cables seperated with all the plethera of wires i am going to have hooked up itis going to be a real arce of a time.

    sorry for being so ignorant just would like some pro advise. that is one of the reasons i bought monster cable to cut down on interference but it seems no matter what i try i do not see how i can make it perfect.

    thanks in advance for an answer to my ignorant question.

    Personally I run all the connects to electrical outlets down one side of the rack away from the interconnects and away from the speaker wire. I don't get overly concerned if different high quality speaker wire gets near other high quality speaker wire although I don't bunch it up either.

    PW's suggestion is a good one. Just try and run them as best you can. If you at least think about wire management, you are doing more than most people.

    I use RipTies(Velcro) and bundle certain audio IC's with other audio IC's. I bundle video with video, etc...you get the idea. I don't use anything but shielded cables, so interference isn't so scary to me.

    I've never really been too concerned with my wires and interconnects being too close, but, I do use that black plastic tubing that you can get from Ace Hardware for about .35 a foot. It does a good job at keeping everything organized and seperated. You should check it out.

    I use nylon pull ties and the pull tie plastic bases (with adhesive on the back) to route cables around one another. I think good cable management is one the most effective/cheap tweaks you can do, and results in a very quiet background from your components. If you have alot of extra speaker cable, try forming a big "loop" with the excess, and tuck it under your rack if possible. Don't cinch the pull-ties tightly, just snug.
