    hi all -

    for those of you utilizing your 5.1 inputs (sacd/dvd-a/etc) are you using a special cable for the subwoofer line? or are you just using the "left-over" cable?

    just wondering...

    thanks

    I use the same RCA audio cable I use for the other 5. inputs, 3 sets of RCA cables. I use directional shielded twisted pair type cables.

    I made my own out of Quad Shield RG6 with gold ends purchased at Partsexpress.com.....Works pretty good. Maybe not the best solution, but since I had to use the cable for other uses, really incurred no additional costs....
