I just purchased some dual subwoofers. The distance from my subs to the receiver is about 75' because I have to go around all the walls. So I was wondering if there is going to be a decline or deterioration of performance over that long distance using a 75' subwoofer cable?
Different opinions surround the unbalanced cable length subject. Um using 35 feet unbalanced cable length for my sub with zero loss. I measured it with multimeter. First I measured the volts running through a 6 ft cable and then compared it with the results of 35 ft. It was same.
I reckon if an unbalanced cable is adequately shielded against EMI/RFI, the length won't make a difference. But having said that, a multimeter will tell you exactly. I reckon you do the same.
