Need 50ft RCA cables????

I'm looking to pick up 50ft RCA's. I can find 25ft places, and that MAY do, but 30'-50' would be ideal. Just need a quick fix to run some equipment until i buy new DJ speakers. Where is the cheapest place to buy them?

Could i use one of those RCA adaptors to connect TWO RCA cables together? Do you lose any quailty in that?

Yes you can use barrel connectors, anytime you run a long run you risk quality and signal loss. Another option is to use 2 starnds of rg6 terminated with rca ends.

I used the method Kman described, buying raw RG6 coax from Rat Shack and then terminating it with RCA connectors. Works very nicely and the price is right as well. Also check out Parts Express.....they should have RCA cables in 50" lengths already terminated.
