I've personally used these with success:

I have used these as well and are a lil nicer connections and lil more noise free
http://www.darvex.com/store/pc/6000-Series-c115.htm lil more money but worth it

If I could do it over I would buy these because everything Coleman makes is the [email protected]

As long as you buy RCAs from a reputable company they should be fine. You want to run them away from your power cable and away from sources of power within the vehicle, such as the blower motor, fuel pump, etc. Even then you can sometimes get away with not taking those precautions if your amplifiers have noise rejection for the inputs. Don't spend big bucks on RCAs.

Not saying you need the best of the best but even great companies like Stinger, Knuconceptz, Streetwires, Scosche all make some junk cables. I feel I should elaborate if you go with a big name company just don't buy the cheapest series any of them make

I have Stinger Hyper series in my truck and they've served me for the last few years without issue.
They are like $20 for the 17ft 4 channel and $12 for the 17ft 2 channel.

I've used lots of Monster 301 rcas, and Stinger Zn3 rcas.

The key to the stinger hyper series is the fact they are small so they are easy to install...

and right now, vertex has Hyper and a few other series on sale.

If mine did that, I'd be mad.

maybe there's a difference in our installs/drivinghabbits/method of removing connected rcas

my only complaint is those o-rings that mark which channel is which.. they don't stay put.

yeah my rings fell off too..and i did not mean the pins broke off in the amp i meant the rubberized end that holds the pin broke so the rca ends would wobble inside the case were the wires would connect to the pin jack...you could slide the pin in and out of the case...they still worked just real cheezy...and they were never directly put into the amps i ran spliters to them and tapped them up they were tucked away nicely so i have no clue how they broke...
