Does anyone know where I can get a pure white RCA cable that is about 40 ft long to connect to my Subwoofer?

I need it to run along my walls and follow the trim of the doorway, so it looks some what hidden.

Not a problem.

Get one of these: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

and two of these: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

I'd prefer to make it myself, though.

Thanks Kal,

Yeah, I was thinking about making them myself, but I didn't know what exact component I need to do it.

Is there a special tool I need for replacing the RCA adapter and the cable adapter?

?? The adapters I linked to just screw on.

ooh, I just notice it was a screw one, Is there anyway to make one by hand? Like removing the the F adapter and putting on an RCA male?

Sure but do you know how to solder?

I prefer to make my own as well but the easy way around doing that is buy a white coaxial cable to your length with male F connectors on each end. Then buy the screw on adapters to convert the F plug to RCA. Simple as that.

Right. See post #2 in this thread.

Yes, I do know how to solder. But I remember that I don't have a soldering iron, so it's out of the question now. Thanks for your 1st comment, looks like I have to go with that until I feel like spending some extra dough on a soldering iron.

I looked at bluejeanscable and it cost ~75$ just 50ft cable. Not worth it imo.

I have a pair of white XLO/VDO cables that are each 40 feet long. I was using them for powered/active surround speakers before I sold the speakers.

You can buy a soldering iron at home depot for $7.
