Hello all, I am in the process of finishing off my basement and am a bit of a loss as to installing in-wall subwoofer cable. I'm assuming it's RCA type cable, are there any tricks to attaching the cable to wall plates if bought in bulk?

You can also use bulk coax cable and an F-RCA adaptor at each end. This works fine.

Run the coax as you would if it were for cable tv and then use one of these.

Wouldn't you want one of these instead?

Mark,

The way I figured was to use the regular f connector wall plates ( like with cable tv ) then use short sub cables with rca ends from amp to wall plate and from wall plate to sub. If ya do that then the adapter I linked to would be what is needed.

So do these connectors attatch to the RCA cable as the F-type connectors do with coax? Also, anyone have a link to a good but reasonable resource for bulk cable? Seems the best I can find is at "Parts Express" with 25 ftx5 sections...

Mark and Rick, in order for it to all come together properly, doesn't the OP need to incorporate several of these?
