Hi everyone. I have a new M&K VX1250 on the way and need a cable for it. Needs to be 40-50' long to go into my 5.1 receiver. Want a good cable but do not want to second mortgage the house though in order to afford it. Probably would like to stay around 50 bucks or so. Can anyone recommend brands, model numbers, site addresses where I can order? Would really appreciate the input of you gurus out there. Thanks a million.

Thank you.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did check them out but they only have 1 model in stock that is 50' and it was around 8 bucks, sounds a little low which makes me question the quality?

Thank you.

I'm using Monoprice's "High Quality" 50 foot subwoofer cable in-wall, then have 10 foot out of wall. Seems very well made and works great.

Have an Onkyo 805 receiver and having trouble setting up Audyssey?

Read this thread and then buy the one from monoprice. I bought every cable I needed for my HT system from there for 70 bucks, and everything seems well made and works perfectly.

your just talking about the sub freq's, monoprice is great and affordable prices, unless you want to pay for expensive unneeded cables.
