I Need A Flat Power Cord…
« on: January 12, 2023, 02:20:27 PM »
I will soon be asking in a separate post about your thoughts on ‘stereo bass’ using subs. But in the meantime, I’m looking at the mechanics of it…
No electrical outlet near my right speaker, where I would be placing the second sub. I need a flat enough power cord to hide under my area rug without a noticeable hump. My system is in my living room, necessitating both stealth and aesthetics along with the avoidance of noise in the system. I’m not concerned about the speaker wire running to the additional sub, it would run parallel to the wire already there. But, and a big but- running an A/C cord parallel is a big
no-no as far as noise is concerned.
You guys with a dedicated room have no idea how I suffer for my craft!…
If anyone’s come across a flat cord in their endeavors, please let me know. I’ll be looking myself, but it can’t hurt to ask.
Thanks,
Jim

I should add it needs to be at least 12 feet long.

I can also roll my own if there are raw wire alternatives out there.

Drill a hole in the floor & drop the power cord to an outlet in the basement.

I will see myself out now!

I've thought about doing this plenty of times.

So the power cord will work out, but I just need to pull the trigger. I wish I’d have gotten the first one in Rosewood- sub number two will be much more in sight in the living room, and would look nicer in a wood finish. I at least want them to match. I’m giving some thought to selling the original black one and getting a pair in Rosewood. That’s kind of why I’ve stalled.
