RCA cables

My good yellow, white and red friends are piling up. Well actually, just the yellow parts. I've pulled all of the red white connections off my bundles of three so I have two, lonely yellow rca cable parts left. Can I use these as audio from my tv to my stereo? I know they are designated for video, but they look the same. Will I blow stuff up or just not hear anything? I know this isn't really home recording stuff so I just thought I'd put it in the Smack forum. Thanks guys. Happy 4th of July!

They are the same as the Red and white ones, just coloured diff.

Some might have more shielding, or heavier gauge cable in it, but essentially, they are the same thing.

Will more sheilding/heavier gauge cable result in more resistance?

actually, probably less. heavier gauge is more metal (or more circular mills, actually), so less resistance.

more shielding just gives better protection from interference. also a good thing.

I haven't actually metered out a yellow cable, just speaking generally.

This does make me wonder though . . .
