    Does anyone have recommendations for inexpensive, inwall, subwoofer cable? I will probably need around 35 feet from the receiver to the sub. Will the quality of the output to the sub be degraded by using this long of a feed?

    Guys, wouldn't a nice 12-gauge wire from Home Depot work just fine for 35 feet?

    And Arron. Say hi to Portland for me. (My home town.)

    Duh.

    Yeah, you're right, Brian. In fact, that's one of the reasons that I didn't buy a powered sub, so I'd have a bit more flexibility in positioning etc., etc.

    use RG-6 cable with either RCA connectors or F to RCA adaptors. get the RG-6 with a solid copper conductor, not the copper clad steel. works great, sounds great, is cheap and is in-wall rated.
