Written By matt, Apache Jct AZ on Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It didn't even take a week to fold the break in on this thing. I bent the end accidently when sliding my stereo in and out of its hole, its on sliders so I can get to the wires easily, I have not experienced this with my other types of connectors. HDMI no thanks, I think I get better quality through multiple rca connections.

Pros: convenient

Cons: Quality, durability, strength, dependability

Monster is right

Written By avee8or, New Hampshire WOods on Sunday, April 28, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works as advertised. Really heavy duty (translation: fat cable)

Pros: Does what it is supposed to do.

Cons: Really thick, stiff, fat cable

works as expected

Written By KS, Steamboat Springs, CO on Sunday, March 31, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like all 'monster' cables, this one is a bit stiffer than I'd prefer, but I know it will work just fine for an eternity, which is good since I've buried it in a wall. right-angle adapters are really essential - glad I bought some.

Pros: probably last 100 years

Cons: stiff and somewhat hard to bend in tight places
