Next up is the audio interconnects.   The head unit is connected to an audio processor via a length of fiber.   The analog output from the processor goes to the amps via RCA cables.

I ordered a 30m spool of Belden 8461 audio cable and some Puresonic gold plated connectors:

The connector is soldered on and a bit of heatshrink is used as a strain relief:

All five cables are made and the cable covered with a nylon braid. The lefts and rights are braided together:

The straight RCA connecters were too long to plug to the amps so I had to order some short stemmed 90 ones:

These new connecters are soldered on and the cables routed:

The amplifier outputs are connected to the crossovers:
