Techflex Carbon, KnuKonceptz 12 gauge cable pants and GLS Audio Locking Gen 4 Banana Clips.
Just 4 more cables to go...
I will add my vote to nice looking cable, for a first attend at it I would call perfect.
I am tring to achieve the same. but using BJC Belden 10 gauge cable and do not want the twisted look.
So far, I have over come the twisted look by using a 2 gauge welding cable.
The 3/8 Techflex is too tight, so I re-order some Carbon and Blue-Neon ones in 1/2 inch (will see wish one I like better).
Got,10 and 11mm cable pants.
The 11 work perfect.
My only problem is the Banana plugs.
So far I got,
GLS Wave Plug (too tight for my liking)
Madison Wave Plug (do not care for the look)
Sewell Dead Bolt (fit nice for the exception that I can not close the plug all the way)
BJC normal banana plug (again, do not care for the look).
The 10 gauge is giving me lots of headheach but if there is a will, there is a way.
I got 2 more set of Banana plugs on the way.
Sewell Maestro-pro and Silver Back.
If they do not work.
My last attend will be;
BJC locking type (I know they work but do not care of the tighing thing [just me])
GLS Banana one (more expensive but quality one)
So far I have spend a lot more on shipping than the price of the plugs them self.
Once I find something that work good, I will report with pictures (kind of a step by step) to hopefully help someone else that might venture in that direction to save them of this problems.
But this is a hobby, I do enjoy it and want to make it perferct for myself and try to help other just like so many other people help me before.
