If you are calling $30 for a component cable cheap, then I'm getting S-Video for $6 or $7. Also, do I have the cable (as in cable TV) coming into the right place and going to the right place? I'd think it would have to go through the amp but i see no where where it would.

if you think $30 for a component cable (which will give you notable differences) expensive then i think you have picked the wrong hobbie my friend.

No kidding, snakeyes! If somebody told me years ago that I'd be getting into this hobby and spending such-and-such amount of money I would have run away screaming. And I have so many more years to go. . .

if I had an HDTV or flat screen or plasma or something like that, I would get component, but I just have 32" tube tv, S-Video would be good enough.

My stuff arrived this morning! It doesn't do me any good yet because I don't have any cables. Also I didn't notice any hook up cables with the subwoofer and no one ever mentioned it so I assumed it came with some but it didn't. What do I need to hook the sub up and where does the plug go?

Subs do not come with a cable. You have to provide your own. You need a standard RCA to RCA cable. But it should be a decent one. I was using a standard audio cable at one time, and I had a serious hum problem, I assumed this was from running it beside the subs AC cable. I replaced it with a sub cable from Blue Jeans Cable. Problem solved.

I suspect a Dayton sub cable from PartsExpress or one from a nearby Radio Shack ( but NOT a Monster brand - overpriced) would do just as well. Just be sure to get one th proper length with a little slack so you don't put a strain on the connectors.

I assume you meant hook up the sub to the receiver. You have the "sub output" marked in purple (#24), on the diagram to which you provided a link, on page 6 of this thread.

maybe i'll be able to stop at radio shack in day or 2 hopefully. I think this is all I need:

16 Gauge Speaker Wire
Digital Coaxile Cable (I couldn't find a cheaper one from radio shack)
Sub woofer cable
S-Video cables

I think thats all I need to get.

I have a 27inch TV and would not give up my component video cables for anything. They made such a big difference in TV picture that it was amazing. My wife thought that I bought some HDTV or something. If at all possible do not go with s-video if you can go with component. It really is a dramatic difference in quality. And it is not that easy to get any kind of difference in a home A/V system with $30!!!

ok, I would need 2 component cables (1 for for TV-Amp and 1 for Amp-DVD player. But I would still need S-Videos for the Game systems...they would work right? Having the tv connected via component, but having some s-video devices?

Also, can I put my Amp on top of my Subwoofer or would that cause problems?
