Title: Speaker Cable Length
Post by: Josh Weitkamp on February 14, 2018, 06:23:17 pm
I have a simple question about speaker cable lengths,  and itís something Iím sure that has been discussed before. I run passto be subs still in my main rig, and was wondering if both speaker cable runs need to be the same length?? I ask this because I normally have my amp rack and console (Presonus RM series) placed directly behind my stage right stack. Didnít know if I run a shorter cable if it would affect performance or cause any left/right balance issues. Thanks for any input!!

How much of a difference are you talking about?

Ha. The answer last week was, "No." Speakers haven't changed since then, so that advice should still be up to date.
