    Due to space concerns, I'm having to locate the sub away from my other components.

    I guess the total distance will be ~12 feet or so.

    What kind of cable should I use?
    Do you know if they make cable in an off-white color?
    I have to try and bury the cable in the crack of the carpet next infront of a stone fireplace.

    I've heard I can just use RG-6 and get special ends to make them composite but I don't have access to the outer wall to drop a cable down there so that's out.

    Any tips or tricks for burying cable in the space between a fireplace and carpet?

    Thanks!

    btw - it's the 25-31PCi and I'm pumped!!

    Chad,

    Yes, a coaxial cable like RG-6 will work fine with the screw-on RCA adapters. In your situation you might want to use RG-59 instead. It’s thinner and will tuck down between the carpet and fireplace easier. And you probably have a better chance of finding it in white than a regular audio cable.

    Regarding that, all you need is some needle nose pliers or something to pull the carpet up right at the brick (but not so far that it comes off the tack strip). Pull up a small section and tuck your cable under the carpet between the tack strip and brick as you go. Stuff the carpet back down and you’re in business.

    Regards,

    I don't know squat about cable pulling suggestions, but wayne is right about cable possibilities. The sub cable is probably the least important of anything in the system, so pretty much any coax will work just wonderfully.
