    I'll planning my cable install for the cellar and I can't quite get to grips with how best to route a sub cable. Ideally I thought I could run a pre made cable in the cavity and then have RCA to RCA sockets set in wall plates at either end, but I can't seem to source RCA to RCA wall plate sockets :confused: If you have had a similar dilema what have you done to solve it? The other way I can see is to get a blank wall plate and rill a hole to take the cable, thus eliminating two connections from the equation but this would reduce the flexibility :lease: help

    After doing a bit of reading it seems that using a shielded cable might reduce some of the low hum my sub produces (it is already grounded back to the amp, which stop the horendous hum problem I had before). Would it be a good idea to use CT100 to run behind the wall, rather than a premade cable? And should I make the patch cables to run from the wall plates to the amp and sub from the same thing?
