Blue Jeans LC-1 is an excellent choice. The low capacitance isn't really a factor with subwoofer frequencies (high capacitance rolls off highs). It's the shielding design that is so good at rejecting low frequency hum (like from power cables).

BJ used to have two lines of cables one with low capacitance for interconnects, and one with good shielding for subs. Their new, custom built LC-1 cable stock beats both previous cables in both areas. And it is cheaper!

Knock, welcome. There's really nothing to worry about trying to be "sure". You'd have to be pretty unlucky to find a coaxial cable that wouldn't do the job as well as needed. Blue Jeans is fine, but except for their Tartan Cable division, a bit pricey. This is the cable I've used with my EP500 for the last four years.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

I've used Monoprice in the past as well. After receiving the item, i saw that it was identical to the one sold in a Future Shop except 1/10th the price.
Shipping was fast.

Very impressed.

I used Blue Jeans for my cabling for V2 of my theater because they have great products for a good price. For V3, I went to Monoprice. Great products as well, and even better pricing (usually). You won't go wrong with either company.

I must be the only one using an Axiom sub cable.

I use the Axiom cables for my sub and surrounds. Great quality and very flexible.
