I realize that threads have been dealing with wire lengths, f/r matching distances, size, composition and the like. On a slightly different note I am probably going to be setting up a Hsu STF3 sub in a corner which will be diagonally across from my receiver (HKavr7200).
Running the wire around the perimeter of the room also not a good idea since there is a 4x6 fireplace apron along one of the perimeter walls adding to the length so that it approaches 40+ feet. Again not the way to go.
I feel almost like the 'Goldilocks syndrome' that the next way may be "Just Right": Running the connection down through the unfinished basement and across the rafters to be brought up behind the newly relocated (due to its size) receiver. This run would be approximately 25+ feet to allow a little flexibility when moving the receiver to the floor from its shelf to address wires in the back.
The question(s) of the moment: What type of connection should be used since the length is beyond the 20 foot cable offered by Hsu ($15 - which sounds reasonable, but unfortunately is just a tad toooooo short. And what would be a recommended cable/wire/connection lengths and available from...?
