    I am installing wires in the my house while it is being framed. I am running the subwoofer wire about 25-30 feet and cannot find a cable that is that long. Can someone please point me in the direction to find one that long? Or could you please tell me how I can make one?

    Thanks,

    Stephen

    I have a 40ft run to my second sub that goes behind the wall up tot he ceiling then across the room and down the other wall. I used outdoor coaxial cable with F-RCA adaptors on each end (available from Radio Shack). It works really well. I understand you can also order the regular coaxial ends and install yourself. Perhaps someone can post a link to it.

    Coax cable is great for doing runs for subs. I would use bulk RG-6 wire myself to get as much band with as possible though I am not sure if this is necessary for subwoofer frequency. If you terminate the wire with straight RG-6 ends there is an adapter that will make the coax end into an RCA end. Radioshack should have those as well.
