He didn't have noise issues... his just broke.

But RCA's should not be run on the same side as the power wire. If you have RCA's with good shielding, you may be okay, but I wouldn't risk it.

RCA cables run a very low voltage/current signal, so the slightest interference will be audible, that's why RCA cables with decent shielding is recommended.

Speaker wires run a way higher voltage/current, so interference changes the signal so little, it's not audible. Most speaker wires aren't shielded, because they don't have to.

Re: Aux cables

Give eBay a shot as well. Much larger crowd there than here.

I didn't need to worry about that, My RCA's are 3 ft.

They go from my Cache line output converter which is right behind the rear driver side panel, beside the factory amp to my Alpine.

I still had issues with the Moster Cable running the sub.
