    I'm looking for flat RG6 or flat sub cable- can't find it. Any suggestions?

    I need to run the cable under a rug unfortunatly.

    You could use a budget-grade RCA cable, like the kind that come with in the box with components, if you can find one long enough. They’re pretty thin and would hardly be noticeable, provided you have sufficient padding.

    If you can’t find an appropriate length, you’ll have to custom-make your own – run some install-grade cable and solder on RCAs to both ends.

    Wayne,
    I'm not sure what "install-grade cable" is? Do I ask for this at a hardware store or radio shack? I might just try the extra padding, although I prefer not to.

    try calling some TV repair places. They just might be able to hook you up with some. Most of the stuff I've seen that's commercially available is like 8" and designed to go under, doors, slider, and windows.

    Chu,
    Great quote!

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    For the meantime, I went with 12" Radio Shack Gold Audio cable, seperated the lines, coupled them, and attached them to the sub via a y-spliter.
