I can see I don't belong or fit in on the AVS web site. My outlook and way of doing things is far different than most on here. I'll look for another web site more suited to me.

okay, maybe I missed something, sorry about that.

It looks like RG-6 coax cable. This is commonly used for long runs to powered subwoofers.

All you need to do to make this work is terminate the wire to an RCA wall plate/jack. Then simply run a small RCA sub cable from the wall jack to your subwoofer.

Yes you'll need to terminate the in-wall cable to the faceplate, preferrably with a F-connector to RCA plug. And then connect a subwoofer cable from the wall plate to the subwoofer.

RCA Faceplate would look like this

If you have the tools, go for it. You might be well on your way to making your own custom audio interconnects, now.

Sure you belong. Check out the DIY section. It's full of people who love building every component needed to support their hobby.

No one was saying the OP shouldn't try and get the tools to do it himself. Just that it doesn't sound like the OP is getting into the hobby deep enough to need a set of coax terminating tools lying around.

Knowing how to terminate coax won't make someone knowledgeable as it's a pretty simple task. Also, you don't need to have the terminating tools just to have a Man Card. lol

amair, you might want to get an inexpensive volt / ohmeter to check your homemade cables, if you are getting into this. $22.50 is a good price for that compression tool. I use mine a lot. (Got a big family and for friends.)

mcfan, there is nothing wrong with your ideas, people like to joke around a lot here.
