I made a 4 foot cat5e cable to try out. If it works, I plan on using it for my center. I used 6 cat5e wires braided. Now, my question, will capacitance of this wire be an issue, I read that this set-up has a higher capacitance, and could cause my amp to overheat. I'm running a yamaha htr-5960, I doubt this will be a problem, because if I've read right, this is essentially a 10ga. wire, and that shouldn't pose a problem...right?? I'll admit, I'm a newb still, so I just don't wanna fry anything. If its not a problem, I'll do some testing. It did come out really good,. Used heat shrink tubing for the whole cord, flexibility is better than I thought it would be, and it kinda looks like a spinal cord (which is what i've been calling it now).
