RCA cable

RCA cable

I have microphone cable consisting of two conductors and a shield (CMK 222). When making a RCA to RCA cable, what should I do with the extra conductor? Combine conductors as a single signal or ground it somehow? Or would there be any benefit making a RCA to XLR cable instead (with the cold signal grounded as advised)? My source has only unbalanced output. The speakers would be G series, maybe G Three.

Please see: I have unbalanced outputs - RCA or 1/4" Mono Jack - on my equipment. How do I connect my monitors?

Thank you. How about the first question about making a RCA to RCA cable with similar 2-core cable?

Just look at the first example. It is exactly like that but you just connect RCA connectors to both ends.
