I have a 2.1 speaker system that I have been using for over 6-7 years or so. Recently I have decided to mount the two satellites on the wall, but there is a problem with the length of cables. I have to extend (to 2.5 meters) the cables that are RCA type. I think of two ways of accomplishing it.
- I can mount a female RCA connector on satellite speakers' cases. This way I can remove RCA cables from the satellites easily in the future. I have run across some articles online claiming that noise production between RCA male and RCA female is a known issue. How much it reflects the truth?
- I may just solder one end of the RCA cable directly to the speaker as it is done by the manufacturer of this system.
In both of these methods, how using thicker RCA cables may change the sound quality? Is there something I should know about soldering the audio wires to get the best results? What type of RCA cable is the best (in terms of buddeg and technology) for such an old basic system upgrade?
