    I'm trying to run my sub to the back of my living room approximately 25ft. Where can I buy it that long or can I make it myself using coax cable. If I can, what kind of coax. Thanks.

    RG6 coax will work fine.
    I have somewhere around a 25' RG6 coax cable that I did myself for my SVS.
    No problems at all, just make sure you get the ends crimped on correctly.

    OR just buy the 25-foot RG6 black coax at RadioShak for $7 and add two F-to-RCA adapters for

    Ditto what Bill said that is exactly what I did and it works great.

    Check out one of the Teflon based Belden 89259, 1695a or 1506a
    Then either use Canare crimp on connectors or solder on a decent RCA of your choice.

    I like the Monster sub cables for the flexibility, neutral color, and what appears to be very good construction. And an easy cable to snake along walls.

    Before you do that, check out a 25 foot long subwoofer cable I got for $14 @ P.E.

    RG6Q (quad shielded) is what I prewire subs with.
