Hi guys, can anybody tell me which cables I should use to connect me preamp to amp, and then to the sub? I always used powered subs before with special subwoofer cable, but this time it's different. I always try to go for good quality cables - I use Homegrown Audio Silver Lace cables between preamp/amp, and DH Labs Q10's between amp and speakers. What would you recommend to connect the sub? Maybe use the same Q10 for amp-sub connection? What about pream-amp? Should I use copper based interconnects, or Silver Lace would be as good for sub as they for the rest of the system?

Thanks

Tony

The same rules hold true for Subs that have external amps vs. those that have built-in amps (which are really still just external amps that happen to reside in the same box as the sub). You'd use good quality subwoofer cables or AV cables as you did for your previous subs.
