    Default Can I use Digital Coaxial Cable as Subwoofer Cable?

    Title says my question.
    What's the difference between those?

    Thanks

    ^^agree

    usually the difference in sub cables and regular interconnects is shielding because of longer runs than interconnects...

    though digital cables have a lot of shielding as well so whatever works.

    Better sheilding, and about 55 Ohm (if it's a true 75 Ohm dig cable vs a standard 20 Ohm interconn)
    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    Are the Radio Shack gold series of cables 75 Ohm cables? Seems like I was able to use an old R/W/Y video-audio cable of the gold series variety and all 3 sections of the cable were 75 Ohm, not just the yellow video stream.

    In any regard, I had quite a bit of sub hum a few years back with a previous sub. The RS gold series cable killed that hum and I don't recall spending too much money.

    Another option for longer runs would be to buy some cable TV coax with the ends pre-attached. Then, head for RS and get the "F" type to "RCA" screw on adapters - about $4.50 each, and attach them to the ends. BAM! Instant subwoofer cable of a nice length - and properly shielded. :o

    Radio Shack Gold will do just fine, although I don't like their endcaps b/c they tend to stick to whatever they're attached to overtime. I use their Fusions for EVERYTHING, and couldn't be happier. Unfortunately in order to carry the overpriced Monster cables, they had to discontinue their Fusion line all together. Shame really. They're a superior product to Monster's THX Standard cable imo.
