For a sub just get some digital coax cable which comes with RCA ends, either RG59 or RG6 is fine, you don't need anything fancy. Monoprice is a very popular website online if you want killer prices and top notch quality.

What type of music are you listening to, it is possible it is not the type that plays the low frequencies.

Are you saying your using the thinner audio type interconnects, versus thicker like component or coax size?

when I push the volume i get respectable bass but not earth shaking like you would think... any ideas?

I've got the denon set to yes for sub
I have crossover at 120 (but tried them all really)
Power is set to max... and i'm really not impressed.

I know it's my settings/lack of knowledge... I was just hoping ot have it pumpin' for the party tonight.

On the receiver, all speakers should be set to small, with an 80hz crossover. The 800 crossover knob should be maxed out or on bypass to get it out of the way, since the receiver is controlling the bass management.

Are you using the subwoofer "pre out" on the back of the receiver, to the "input" on the sub, using cable like in the picture above, you mentioned a splitter, why would you need a splitter. Just a cable going from the receiver to the LFE Input on the sub with RCA connections.

Agreed. If you only have one sub, there is no need for a splitter.

I'm just worried he is hooking something up wrong, which may be why he is not getting good performance from the 800.
