SL, whatever types of wire and cables that you decide to get, there's no need to buy the pricey stuff. RadioShack is convenient, but their prices generally aren't really that good. Parts Express, which Jack mentioned is a good source and you might look at the items available from Triangle .

What always turns me off about Parts Express (just before I'm about to buy stuff) is their exorbitant shipping costs. When I'm paying more for the shipping than the product, that's not a good thing. I say go with RatShack or Blue Jeans.

I already order my things from there. Yeah, the shipping was a little insane and I'm sure thats how they are making more profit. But compared to Radio shack I didn't mind. What would have costed me over $100 at radio shack only costed about $40 altogether from the 2 sites I ordered from.

I know that Fry's has component (pretty good quality) cables for $14.99...I have seen Acoustic Research cables at Target as well as Best Buy for less than $20...

The suggestion of Radio Shack was because most everyone knows of or has a RS near them...They do in a crunch but you can find better elsewhere...

Component DOES look better and if you have the imputs, it would behoove you to try it...You can even use a red, yellow, white cable set in a pinch...

I understand the budget restraints...unfortunately I did not do enough research when I originally bought cables and bought Monster...then realized I had been hoodwinked and paid WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY TOO MUCH! Needless to say, I learned my lesson...Component cable I use is not Monster.

Blue Jeans and (the now defunct Rhino) Cables are very good values but can "seem" expensive...but not compared to other boutique brands...

Just trying to help.

Can I sit my bookshelf speakers on top of my subwoofer? If not, can I put the subwoofer on the floor, then have a random box on top of that, and then the bookselfs on top of the box. Like this
