  • Rj45 in car amps.

    So is anyone running car amps with cat 5 / cat6 lines? if so please explain how you have this system set up...

    im very interested in this setup.

    could you explain what you mean by running amps? do you mean the audio signal, or the power?

    assuming that you meant the audio cables... i have heard of people using cat5 for audio cable interconnects, because of the twisted pairing, and the noise rejection because of the twisted pairing. Usually they do this by buying component rca connectors and soldering their own cables out of the cat5.
