Sometimes you get what you pay for...in this case....a 25 foot cable for $6.....which includes markup and profit.
Yes, I'm sure the rebuttal will be "nun-uh" I used them and their fine", but anyone who has been around here a while can tell you that *many* AVS members have had issues with them, and many have replaced them and eliminated noise and hum. A subwoofer cable is a very simple product.....defects should be extremely close to zero, and that is definitely not the case for that junk.
If there are issues, then it is due to shoddy Monoprice QC and not the cable itself. This is coming from someone that has bought Audioquest cables before (and still use them). Other than the fancy jacket and quality connectors, there is nothing special about the cable itself. The funny thing is they have directional arrows as if electrons care about the direction of the cable.
For goodness sake don't spend any more money than getting a cable from Blue Jeans Cable - a 6ft cable runs about $24. They use Belden cable and Canare connectors that are truly professional quality.
