Where can I find this?

Postby cyber_m0nkey » Sun, 30 Oct 2005 11:13 pm

Looking for something like this locally. I only need about 4 or 5 feet in beaige/off-white to run some speaker cable.

I've looked in hardware stores and computer stores - no luck.

Try the Adelphi mall at North Bridge road, opposite the Funan IT mall, they have lots of high end hifi / audio shops. I also found very good cables around there.

Not that you'd need them, Eric - you don't have a B&O . . . :lol:

You know, you can let some of the pitches pass you by...

I looked for this stuff too and got tired after a few attemps and resorted to the rigid square variety. At least it can be painted.

Yes, agree with SE, Sim Lim Tower (Not Sim Lim Square).

Thanks for the quick feedback. I'll give Sim Lim Tower a go.

MHB, I can't use the square stuff as I'm running it along the floor and I have small kids that WILL trip over it, pulling down either the speakers or the AV unit or both, not to mention it will look terrible.

I think the D profile of rigid trunking is better to use because it can be taped to the floor using heavy duty double sided tape.

Veerasamy Road Blk 635 and 640 has several shops selling nothing but electrical hardware. Within walking distance from Sim Lim Tower.

normal time for me... Depending on how early I need to bring misses Eric to work, Eric wakes up between 7 and 8am.

Yep, life in Singapore can be pretty tough... :P

And the proze goes to....

thanks yoongf, Veerasamy Rd is DIY mecca. It took me less then 5 mins to find exactly what I was after (the one you recommended). Everything you could ever want hardware or electrical is in this little street.
