I just replaced my single ended cables as well with XLRs from Monoprice. I bought various lengths. The sub received a 15 footer I also bought an XLR to RCA 6ft cable to daisy chain my subs. One use a pro amp with balanced inputs only and I used it's loop output to connect the other sub which has single ended inputs only. The rest were 6ft, and one the right front channel received 10ft one. I use monoblock amps so one was placed farther away from the rack, and closer to the corresponding speaker. Before the swap out I had quiet q bit of buzz coming from the main LR speakers, and a faint hum from the subs. There was also sometimes a loud pop when my Pre/pro locked onto some digital signal for the first time after selecting any input. After the swap out all of the problems I just described went away, so naturally I'm pleased and it cost very little to do it, even with the BS high sales tax we have to pay here in CA.
