RCAs are some of our favorite plugs. Easy to use and easy to handle. They’re one of those plugs that everyone has fond memory of using. Our favorite memory was when we accidentally plugged the composite video plug into one of the stereo jacks and our TV made a loud noise – classic!
This three-pack of RCA plugs comes with everything you need to make your own RCA plug memories. It includes a red, yellow and white RCA plug in durable metal. Yellow’s for composite video while red and white are for stereo audio – though since these plugs are the same otherwise we guess you could mix it up a bit and confuse some friends. The plugs screw out of their casing so you can easily connect to a wire and make your own RCA cable with some simple soldering.
