There is no speaker that goes better with monster cable...monster cable will sound identical to cheaper cable...so the speaker will decide how it sounds, irregardless of the cable.

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub

Cats I do feed, with tree rat carcasses (aka squirrels) that end up in my backyard, terminated with extreme prejudice when caught in the act of ripping up my lawn. At least cats serve a useful purpose.

I don't know what the cats do with the departed squirrels. I leave them in the yard, the next morning they're gone, and I've never seen any remains left about.

Nah. Bill is actually experimenting with squirrel skin as the newest exotic driver material. He will charge a cool mil per speaker and claim that it only can be driven by the most expensive amps with the most expensive cable. That will lead to sonic nirvana.biggrin.gif

Actually I haven't dispatched any since I read about repelling them with mothballs. I put them around the yard perimeter starting this past spring, and no varmints. I've seen a couple of tree rats scrambling across the tops of my fences, but none have dropped by for a free meal, not even in my corn patch. They haven't ripped up the lawn to bury nuts either. Oddly the neighborhood cats don't seem bothered by them. It must be a rodent thing.
