    Are subwoofer cables, and composite cables, the same thing? I know they would be used differently, but can they be used intermittently?

    Not really.

    All video cables are made with something called "75 ohm" coax.

    While these cables make dandy audio interconnects, many audio interconnects use "50 ohm" coax.

    So you CAN use a long video cable for the subwoofer. But it's not a rule that you can use a subwoofer cable for video. Only if the subwoofer cable happens to be made with 75 ohm coax and the RCA plug is somewhere near 75 ohms.

    It wont hurt anything to try if you want. Look for ghosting/halo's in the image.
