    Default Cable question IC's need help from those who know

    OK this question is targeted to the guys who have experience with long, and short IC's of the same type. What sounds better with these 2 scenarios.

    1 Tweeter amp. What sounds better long or short?
    2 MW amp. Same question.

    A very respectable friend here recommended 2 Meter long IC's over the 3 foot verities. I need to know which is better if made up from the same cable construction. I have also read that speaker wires should be at least 8 feet long.

    Thanks for your input
    Ben

    Medium length is perfect. Don't screw up or it will sound awful.

    A bit too short or a smidge too long and you could lose your soul.

    Thanks guys. When I was real green at this I thought that the shorter the better. Then I hear go long. When you get to this point things really start to make a difference.

    It isn't going to matter Ben,unless you talking super long runs over 8 ft,then you'd have to be concerned over cable type.
