What's a good optical cable for automotive use? It's should be about 15' or longer.

This is going to be between a headunit to a processor. I'm trying to keep the RCA patch cables as short as possible. and don't want to have 4 runs of rca's to the trunk either. Thanks for your time.

I'm using acoustic research but any optical will work

I've used acoustic research, phoenix gold, ixos, and monster. Obviously the phoenix cable is no longer made, but other than that they are all the same. Toslink fiber optic is pretty much the same regardless of name brand, so find whatever one will be cheapest for you and that will work. A word of wisdom though, since I am pretty sure this is going to an Alpine head unit, be prepared to have to modify the head of the cable so that it will be able to actually plug into the unit.
