    I am moving my sub to the rear of my sofa for corner loading purposes. and I either need to add an additional 18 ft cable to my existing Monster 300 cable (18 ft to 36 ft) or buy a new one.

    (1) Will I experience degradation in sound if I use a female to female connector and add an additional Monster 300 18 ft cable?

    (2) Assuming I get a new one piece 36 ft cable, is there really a sound quality difference between the following:
    a: Monster 300
    b: Bettercables
    c: RG-6 coaxial
    d: Bluejeans cable

    Monster and Bettercables advertise better subwoofer sound quality and tighter bass. Alot of members on this forum just use RG-6 for extended runs.

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Save your money and just add to it. A single run would be best, but doubt that you would notice a difference between the two.

    Use a good quality female to female connector if you go that route!

    Oh, the cable brands. On a extremly high end system & sub, maybe a difference could be heard, but I would not bet on it.
