Speaking of speaker wire (or sub cable).

I am thinking about moving my sub to the back left corner of my room... this will require about 40-50 feet of sub cable.

This is really cheap through monoprice($9.60), and about $65 through blue jeans. I bought my 10 foot sub cable from blue jeans and REALLY like how flexible and soft the cable is... I just think that the sub cable from monoprice will be more like a coax cable that is hard to tame... making it harder to run along baseboards and around corners.

Anyone ever used a subwoofer cable from monoprice?

I am VERY happy with my HDMI cable, but wondering if I should just stick with Blue jeans for the sub cable since I know I like it.


hmmmmm.....

David, yes when I got my EP500 I sent for this cable from MonoPrice. No problems, of course, and flexibility is fine in my opinion.

Signal losses in coaxial cable are almost zero at sub frequencies and home connection distances, so there's no need to get that high-priced $9.60 cable, which is RG6 rather than RG59(and likely somewhat stiffer).

Most of my cables have come from monoprice, including a 50ft coax sub cable. I had one end where if you tightened the fitting to tight, it would strip loose, so a little black electrical tape keeps it firm.

What was the results?

Can you use it inside walls?


I have, Its nice wire. Very flexible. I used it inside the walls. Its not in-wall rated. But so what. I dont need to protect myself... from myself like the government thinks with their nonsense building codes. For example. If my speaker wire is on fire inside my walls. I think i have bigger things to worry about than how toxic the fumes are.

Just as long as your carefull pulling it that you dont damage it as it doesnt have the extra jacket on the outside.

The axiom speaker wire does have a funny smell to it though. I mean, When you get it you'll see what i mean.

ok, I noticed that now.

based on my quick internet search, both RG6 and RG59 work the same (for subwoofer use)

Is this correct??
