Probably a dumb question but....
I have a spare red/white RCA analog audio cables. Can I use one of these to connect my Sub out from the receiver to the SUb in on the Subwoofer?

Just wondering if I need some special RCA cable for a subwoofer or something.
Thanks

That is what I did on one of my subs, I actually couldn't find a interconnect one day so I just took some thick A/V cables (monster I think) and pulled them apart, bought some female rca couplers and placed the sub about 12 feet away from the tv in the corner of the room. The only worry you should have is the "ground loop" problem from what I understand about it.

If your talking about the freebies that come with dvd players for audio, yes they would work, but I would rather use coax sub cable with rca ends, much thicker and better insulated which can be found at Wally World, Home improvement stores or your local Radio Shack, "we've got answers".
