Hey guys, when connecting either a subwoofer or an amp to a preamp/receiver using RCA cables, is it ok to use digital coax cables? Or should you stick with specific Audio RCA and Subwoofer RCA cables? Is there any difference? Reason I ask is I can get better pricing on Digital coax then subwoofer/audio RCA cables specifically.

Thanks

The "digital" cables will be fine. Many "analog" cables actually use the same coax.

Ok cool. So no lose of signal or any other problems, especially for the sub? What about using component cables? I have a few of those laying around.

Video and digital audio both use 75 ohm coax cables. So, yes, a component video cable will be fine.
