Our take on the JL Audio Marine RCA Patch Cables

by Ken Nail
JL Audio

If you're installing a marine audio system on your boat, don't skimp by using regular patch cables. JL Audio designed their marine audio interconnects to deliver high-performance and long life. These patch cables are available in 3-foot, 6-foot, 12-foot, and 25-foot lengths.

The twisted-pair construction rejects noise from your boat's electrical system, while the pure copper conductors provide excellent signal transfer. The molded connector bodies and machined brass connectors provide protection against corrosion, so your signal stays strong. Warranty: 2 years.

RCA stereo cables

Written By FRE, Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
It was very difficult to find RCA stereo cables at a reasonable price. Therefore, I was very happy to find the JL Audio Marine RCA Patch Cables. The price was reasonable and the cables were well-made.
For something as simple and non-technical, it is difficult to find much to say. However, they are well-made and the price was reasonable.
The amount of packing was grossly excessive and environmentally irresponsible. Audio cables are inherently immune to damage from having the package dropped so there was no need to have them packed as though they were fragile cocktail stemware glasses.
Crutchfield response on Wednesday, August 13, 2014
The packing peanuts that Crutchfield uses are 100% biodegradable! Drop one in a bowl of water and watch what happens. They dissolve. They're made up primarily of corn starch, and we make them in our warehouse in big batches, as needed. It's a process we invested in years ago to help protect the environment. About two years ago, we reduced the amount of additional paper we insert in boxes - flyers and stuff like that - because it was so wasteful. Environmental concerns are always on our mind.

Not the usual JL quality?

Written By MahaRex, Fort Walton Beach, FL on Sunday, August 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I recently purchased 3 sets of these for my pontoon boat stereo system, which is essentially the JBL Marine full kit (4x 6.5" 2-way speakers, the 4-channel amp, and 10" self contained sub). I run a Kenwood marine head unit, and have 2 of the cables going to the 4-channel amp and the 3rd providing signal to the sub (which has its own built in amp). I was thrilled that a top-tier brand name like JL made reasonably priced marine grade interlinks, and purchased without hesitation.

However, since I hooked them up, I've had to unhook them a couple times (my boat is a work in progress, so I pulled my custom amp/power rack out of the boat to continue electrical work under the main console) and now I've been having issues with the speakers cutting out during use. I fiddled around a bit, and realized that the connection at the amp is the culprit. I swapped the cable around (i.e. I unplugged it from the head unit, plugged THOSE plugs into the amp, and then plugged the other 2 back into the head unit), and it mostly fixed the problem.

Bottom line; these cables work I just thought that they should be able to withstand being unpluged 2-3 times and still make a good solid connection with what they are going into; particularly since they are marine grade and thus should be MORE durable. (I actually purchased a 4th cable to replace the one that was giving me trouble - I'll make sure not to unplug them once installed)
Marine grade construction, price considering brand name, multiple lengths

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Good quality, flexible, and look well constructed. Bought to install a powered sub in a Polaris RZR ATV, were easy to route from my head unit under dash to rear bed area. Look like they will hold up to dirt and water well.
Well constructed and sealed cables
