    "Subwoofer cables" aren't anything special.

    In fact, they have probably the easiest specs requirements of any other interconnect in this hobby. They only have to pass from almost DC up to maybe 150 hz or so.

    Virtually any functioning shielded interconnect* with RCA plus on the ends will provide all the functionality you could ever need.

    * Audio, video, diital, whatever you've ot laying around.

    anything with an RCA plug and decent shielding will do.

    Hey Old Sport, good to see you 'round these parts.
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Good fortune with any cable from Blue Jeans, so far. Good habits for cables include respecting the 'get what you pay for' philosophy. "they're all just copper", right? was a quote from a previous boss that still haunts me at night.
