    The sub connection is one of the least important line level connections IMO. The bandwidth is only 10% of the other channels, distortion is usually higher and SNR usually lower, so there's not much point in using a premium cable for it. Just get a normal, decent coaxial cable with decent RCA connectors.

    Just use a good sheilded RCA cable. I use a Monster sub cable (M350i) without incident.

    Use a "high quality" shielded VIDEO (75 ohm) cable. A specific sub cable is best, but a regular audio cable (while it will work) is the wrong impedence.
