I'm sure any old cable will work fine.

A well shielded 75ohm cable should do the job....I would pass on the generic ones you have. If you need any more tho

Use whatever generic RCA-to-RCA cable you have on hand. If you find or feel that it's not working quite right for you, buy something like this from Monoprice.com.

Information on this site should be required reading for anyone seeking cables:

BTW, I use LC-1 cable. Great build quality and quite durable.

Running the monoprice to both my subs now, seem to be well built.

A wise man once said if it sounds like a broken record there is a motive behind the message.

75 ohms is a myth. Any RCA or coax like RJ6 will work perfectly. Some people don't agree but one member who does reviews for Stereophile magazine says ohms don't matter.
