    I'm buying a pair of Mackie MR5's. Does it matter what sort of cables I hook them up to?

    All you need to do is use standard microphone cables. Those are self powered monitors and don't require " speaker cable". You only need speaker cable when feeding your speakers from an outboard power amplifier. When doing that, I just pick up regular 14 or 12gauge electrical copper cable, power cord, zip cord, unshielded. If you want the ultimate speaker cable just use the jumper cables from your car.

    Thick zip cord is all I use
