    I am looking for a 10-12 foot speaker cable run for my SVS subwoofer. I would like to hear some recommendations. My budget is up to $4/foot.

    When you say "subwoofer speaker cable" I assume you mean an RCA cable for connecting the subwoofer to your Preamp/Receiver's Subwoofer output. If this is a case, I'd highly recommend a 4m AudioQuest Diamondback subwoofer kit. It will include a single 4m run of Diamondback cable, a T adapter, and a short run of cable for the T adapter (if your sub has stereo inputs). Diamondback is double balanced, using two solid Perfect Surface Copper conductors, with the shield connected only at one end so it is not used as an inferior signal conductor. For insulation, it uses air filled Foam Polyethylene. Finally, the cable is terminated with welded-on high quality gold plated RCA plugs.
    You can see a cross section here:http://www.audioquest.com/popups/diamondback_pop.html

    I mean speaker cable or speaker wire. I don't mean RCA cables or interconnects. Thanks for the responses anyway.
