Demevalos’ Guide to Creating Y-Split Braided Cables

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of building your own audio cable using Mogami w2893 wire. You’ll need some basic tools and materials, such as a soldering station, solder, heat shrink, paracord, connectors, and pliers.

Step 1:

Measuring the Cable Start by measuring the length of the cable you want. Cut open the sheathing of the Mogami wire carefully, avoiding damage to the copper wires inside.

Step 2:

Removing the Sheathing Cut the sheathing on one end of the wire, and then flip it to cut the other end. Pull out the wire to remove the sheathing completely.

Step 3:

Unraveling the Wire Unravel the copper wires from around the paper and remove the nylon strings, but keep the paper for now. Untwist the wires until you’re left with just the wire and the nylon strings.

Step 4:

Preparing the Paracord Cut four strands of paracord, slightly longer than the wire, to avoid fraying. Remove the inner strands of the paracord.

Step 5:

Threading the Wire Thread the wire through the paracord by pushing it through, and for hard-to-reach sections, use the “snake and pinch” technique.

Step 6:

Soldering the 1/4 inch Jack Strip and twist the black and clear wires together for the ground connection. Similarly, solder the red and blue wires for the positive connections. Ensure no connections are touching where they shouldn’t be.

Step 7:

Braiding the Cable Follow the “Over two, over one. Under two, under one” pattern to braid the wires neatly. At the Y split, twist two ground wires and two positive wires separately, securing them with heat shrink.

Step 8:

Soldering the 2 Pin Connector Connect the wires to the connectors. The bigger pin is for ground, and the smaller pin is for positive. Use a strain relief to secure the connections.

Step 9:

Test and Finish Test each connection with a multimeter to ensure they are correct. Tighten the connectors and apply hot glue for added security. Perform a sound check to ensure everything is working properly.


Congratulations! You’ve successfully built your custom audio cable. Enjoy the improved audio experience with your personalized creation.
