    er yeah speaker cable is per metre........sub lead was an example at 5m 1m is normally not enough 3m is ok if sub is near amp 5m is general rule of thumb 10m if its...5.1-10m from amp...............

    Priced per meter

    In Stock Price: £0.70 inc VAT
    Did you really think you needed 70p of speaker cable for 5 Speakers?????

    Do you think that these cables will do it justice hornydragon or is it better to spend some of the cash you saved on better and pricier cables???

    that website's prices are well cheap compare to what ive been charged in the past, have you used them yourself mate?? :smashin:
