T-Spec RCA patch cables will send your musical signals cleanly across the veritable battlefield of induced noise and uncertain factory electronics in your car, so you'll enjoy all of your music with none of the noise. T-Spec RCA cables resist noise due to their shielded construction and the double twisted pair arrangement of the wire inside their jackets.
Recycled copper often contains impurities that can impair a wire's conductivity, so T-Spec uses only oxygen-free non-recycled, virgin copper to maximize signal flow in their patch cables. Each machined metal RCA plug features a patented 4-way split tip that guarantees the best possible electrical contact. T-Spec's proprietary PVC jacket gives each cable great flexibility for easier installation, and the durability required for marine certification. Warranty: 1 year.
Average Customer Review(s):
Great quality cable at a reasonable price
Pros: Well made
great product and nice tight fit
Good quality cables
Pros: Soft and easy to bend
The cords I bought are functioning as they should. I really like being able to order them in different lengths. Ordering cords just long enough to reach the components allowed for a very clean installation.
Pros: Varrying lengths available.
Bought this to go from head unit pre-amp to amp and sub in the trunk. Used it for the sub channel and to get rid of alternator whine. Fixed my issue and sound quality is definitely up there. Jacket is thick and sturdy, cable has a high quality feel to it.
Pros: Great length, thick jacket, color coded (if needed), makes running cables easier.
Cons: Minor - rubber collar at ends where main cable splits into two might be a little too thick in tight spots.
Perfect length, works perfect. Using this cable link Denon iPod dock to Denon receiver in the garage.
Pros: Perfect length
Good quality RCA connectors. Installed these between the head unit and the powered sub, sounds much better than hi level input!
Pros: Quality Length Fit
Excellent cables, good performance of my truck stereo.
Pros: Easy to install very flexible
These cables did the trick for sounding off my Bass,
Pros: Flexable tight fit on jack White looks nice.
Cons: Nobody beats Crutchfield
I bought these cables to see if I could eliminate alternator whine coming through the speakers,was not disappointed..
great cables. nice tight fit
Pros: great fit, appear well made
They are decent for the price. Little inconsistent as I purchased 3 pair and two of them are a bit lose on one side. Meaning they don't fit snug around the jack.
Pros: Cost is good , quality is good
Cons: Inconsistent inner diameter at ends
These are just the most utterly amazing RCA patch cables you will ever own! For one thing, the pins on the connectors actually fit into my amp! How is that even possible at this price point?! And don't get me started on how flexible the wire is! OMG! I was able to wrap the excess into neat little circles with a wire tie - talk about convenience! Sadly, I could give only 5 stars to this amazing product.
Cons: Are you kidding me?!
Quality cables do make a difference. Every T-Spec cable I have purchased has been of the highest quality. The other nice thing is the various lengths available. These cables make setting up a system a breeze!
Pros: Excellent build quality, Improvement in signal,flexible cables do not tangle.
These RCA cable work well and will fit snuggly into the head and amp. But, if you have to connect them to other RCA Y cables, they are too lose and will come apart. I had to use electrical tape to keep the male and female RCA cable to stay together. This not only keeps them together, but also provides some water resistance for my boat application.
Cons: Fits loosely with other RCA cables.
Purchased these patch cables as they were alot smaller than the ones i had previous. Wanted to shorten up unused wiring where i could and found these 3 foot cables which was just prefect.
Pros: Great wiring material Strong Cables
Cons: None so far
They are passing my signal to my amp. What else can I say? They are very flexible however if they get pinched between some plastic like mine did they will easily sqeeze that flexible rubber nearly in half so dont make that mistake as I did.
Your factory system upgrade will only be as good as the power and speaker wire you connect them with. If you skimp out on cheap Walmart wire then you are just insulting the cool amp and sub you bought. Give your system the best chance to shine with quality wiring. Get it right the first time and enjoy.
T-Spec products are amazing the look and performance and overall quality you cant beat and the price is not bad ether.
Pros: high quality construction and amazing sound
No noise. Very flexable
Pros: Great price and performance
Just another piece that helped make installation easier. Thank you
Pros: Helped simplify installation
Sound quality seems fine and the length was what I needed.
Pros: Solid connections,good sound quality and very inexpensive.
Great cables flexible easy to work with and have no inference at all great product for the price
Great product will be buying more
Cables seem well built and served its purpose. I will use these again in the future it whatever length i need.
Pros: Well built, just right length
I'm running three sets of these in my vehicle. Two of them to a 4 channel and one to a monoblock for my sub. I noticed when I was tuning the sub that I could hear some of the test tones coming through the front speakers even though I had them disabled on my head unit. Considering they are hooked up to two separate amps, that means the crosstalk is either from my INE-S920HD or these cheap RCA cables. I'm guessing it's the RCA cables, which would mean they probably don't have very good stereo separation either. I'll be trying some different ones whenever I get around to it and I'll try to remember to update this review for you guys.
Pros: Price Plugs fit nice and snug
Cons: Probably a little crosstalk/poor stereo separation
good quality product without being super high priced deffinitley worth your money
Pros: great quality
Were un-needed for my automotive install, my fault for not understanding the requirements of my system; will be using these at home theater in future.
Great product would recommend
Cons: Be sure when installing that you tighten the collar ring on the ends.
They are just plain junk. Cheap manufacturing.
Cons: don't fit tight. fragile.
These wires were easy to install and are great quality.
Pros: Great quality and easy to install.
I bought the RCA's because I had some ground noise in my system when running with the Monsters Cable. After trying to diagnose the problem I thought it was the RCA so I bought these instead. Turns out that it was not the RCA but in fact the headunit had a bad ground. Well, I had installed them anyway and replaced the monster cable. Its easier to remove these cables than the Monster since the RCA male adapters don't grab onto the RCA on the AMP or Headunit like a vise. No noise and I definitely recommend due to its price as well! Just wished that it came in black instead of white.
needed some inexpensive RCA cables for new stereo install. cables work as expected, no problems whatsoever- great value for the money.
Pros: Sound quality, price
This is a perfect guage RCA patch cable . Perfect for any subwoofer system
We'll marek for ease of use
Pros: We'll marked
Provide me with my exact needs
This is a good value for the money; no problems I've heard in the connections.
Pros: good value
So far clean sound from these cables and no noise in system at all.
Pros: good sound connections
Good cable, the space behind the Kenwood radio in the 04 Impala was so tight, the plugs were too long to allow the radio to mount. Have to order some 90 degree connectors for it.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Non really, car just too tight for standard plugs
Nice, pliable material with shallow ends that will not get in the way of a dash that might not have much room. Solid product
Pros: Good quality
Excellent quality and usability
Pros: very pliable and easy to coil up out of the way
lots of hum and alternator whine thin cheap soft jacket, afraid to pull very hard hard to pull under carpet and behind dash due to bulge in case where the two cables come together amateur product
Cons: read review
I unpacked these, and was all set to use them with an amp and a head unit. Turns out I didn't need them, but I was impressed how solid they were and how the cables made it easy to manipulate them while briefly connecting my two devices. Crutchfield was good about helping me return them.
Cable are well built and have good sound
Nice quality cables.
Pros: Perfect length, soft/flexible for easy routing.
Cons: None to speak of.
Great product. Was just the length I needed.
Pros: Great quality.
Cons: Was out of the 4 channel so I opted for 2 2 channel wires.
seem to be functioning as predicted, thankyou,
Pros: great specs and adverts,
Cons: maybe could be a tad less expensive

Just the right size for my instalation in my smaller vehicle. [ James Jun 12, 2016 ]
I couldn't decide whether to use six foot or 10 foot cables, and ended up opting for the extra length to be safe. [ CHARLES E May 11, 2016 ]
I am purchasing two amplifiers, a mono amp for a subwoofer and a 4 channel amp for 4 speakers. I will need a total of THREE sets of rca cables. [ Scott Apr 22, 2016 ]
I needed a second patch cable installing a 5 channel amp [ Joseph Mar 06, 2016 ]
When my system is complete I will have 2 ten in subs in the trunk and an 8 inch sub in the middle of my rear deck. I am planning on having the amp for the tens in the trunk and a mono, compact amp for the 8 inch sub under one of the front seats, hopefully in a place where I have access while in the driver's seat. These cables give me plenty of length to mount this amp anywhere inside the cab without being too long or too expensive. [ Casey Mar 03, 2016 ]
Considered the mid line of another brand but that brand was not available in this length and I did not want to deal with an extra 2 ft of wire to stuff somewhere. [ Kevin Jan 18, 2016 ]

This cable is to be used to go between the head unit and the amp. Speaker wire can be used from the amp to the speakers. [ BLAINE Apr 14, 2015 ]
I have been wiring speakers for years and find RCA cables to be the better choice not only for ease of connection but better look and ability to alter/change components with ease. [ Thomas Apr 14, 2015 ]
Hi Jeff, Only use patch cables as intended, to send pre-amp signal to your amplifiers. Use quality speaker wires between amplifier and speaker to handle the high amperes. Hope that helps. Kind Regards, Randell [ RANDELL Apr 13, 2015 ]
Im not sure I understand your question but, as the signal path works, RCA from radio to amp and speaker wire from amp to speaker. I hope this helps. [ CHUCK Apr 13, 2015 ]
If your receiver has RCA outs it would be far better to use those than to use the speaker outputs. If you do not have RCA outs, you can get a step down which converts the speaker outputs to RCA. very few amps can accept a high level out coming from the speaker outs on the receiver anymore. Most will only accept low level inputs via RCA. [ JOSEPH Apr 13, 2015 ]
