well i could go to radioshack but its still pretty expensive....

what i need is a length of cable...say 10 ft or so, with a female RCA connector on one end and a male on the other, radioshack has em in a 6ft but thats still too short(buy 2 i know) but they aint cheap either....my rear speakers are too far away to reach the back of my sub...i bought the Logitech Z-640 system and id recommend it to anyone, i bought it for use with the computer im building but i plugged it into the Dell for now, problem is the sound card on the Dell is only 2 channel so i can only use 2 speakers and a sub:( still sounds good though. well yeah thats what i need so thanks

well, the hard part there is the male to female they all seam to be male to male that I can find, other things is you need just one set of 2 connectors or you want 2 sets of 1? either way I'm not much help but I'm trying

hmm the stuff on that link still seems kinda expensive to me, i mean 6 bucks for a relatively short piece of cable featuring technology thats been around for quite some time? tsk tsk tsk, thanks for helpin though man, i guess what im gonna have to do is get cable with 2 male ends, then get an adapter thingy with 2 female ends and do it that way, also the cables on the speakers now are supposedly shielded...you think itll make a difference whether i use shielded cable or not? theres alot of stuff in this room that might cause interference.....tv,vcr,satellite receiver, heck even the computer itself but i dont know all that much but audio.

Paydirt! http://store.pchcables.com/6forcamatofe2.html

i think that right there will do the trick, and only $1.85! of ocurse it might not be the highest quality either. but hey its cheap, theyll probly rip me a new one on shipping though. of course mom has the credit card on lockdown right now so no buying stuff online for Zachy
