I like to do a little DIY work, primarily with cables since it is not an expensive investment. I’m interested in trying some tinned copper cable and have decided to use Belden 8422 - 8422 - Microphone Cable, 2 C #22 Str TC, 85% TC Braid, Cotton Braid, PVC Jkt.
I am using standard RCA plugs where I have always used bullet plugs in the past.
With the Belden cable, there are 2 wires plus the shield.
1 end will be 1 connector to the pin, then twisted pair on the second conductor with shield wire soldered to the bracket.
What should I do on the other side of the cable? I have seen you tube clips with the same wiring on the other side.
I have read where people advise them to be directional, so if the same conductor goes to the pin, do I do anything with the 2nd conductor twisted with shield?
For sub 3 ft runs and cheap Belden cables, does it really matter?
Thanks in advance for your help -
