Building a custom cable for a Xenarc 706TSV... impendance question
I need to build a custom cable for a Xenarc 706TSV - the reason being that the stock one won't fit anywhere in my dash. I absolutely MUST use a flat cable.
I got my hands on a pair of male-male connectors (female connectors for this cable, a 20-pin D-sub variation are IMPOSSIBLE to get). So I can't build a short 1ft extension - I _must_ build a whole bloody cable.
Stock cable impedance is around 1.5 Ohms over the ~18ft cable that they provide. My cable is getting around 2.4 Ohms over the 25ft length that I have.
Anybody figure that I would have huge signal loss if I used it? Should I cut it, or is this cable hopeless and I should go shopping for a fancier one?
Thanks for any hints.
