For home audio a cheap connector that fits too tight is not that big of deal as you do not disconnect them that often. For Pro Audio having a better built cable that employes a well engineered connector like those used from Blue Jeans cable can make a difference for longevity of your equipments connections and the cable itself.


Great point about the issue if reconnecting constantly was an issue. is their any tips as to how far to strip down the subwoofer cable?

Simple coax cable with RCA ends (I make my own sub cables as required this way) is all that is required for a sub cable.

If it's coax, spending a few bucks on a tool like this can save a lot oh headaches considering you have to get both the distance to strip the exposed core and the metal inner sheathing just right. And also, you can't just cut off the metal sheathing as it is used as the return wire.

A tool like this gets it right just about every time. Insert the end, press down and twist. Done.

Most home improvement stores should have something like this in the electrical dept aisle. (Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, etc.)

And while you are at HD or Lowes or.... look for the tools and terminals to attach your own coax. I use this tool and these F terminals and these RCAs
