Now onto cables.
1) Do i need the piece below for my subwoofer, or can I run the single subwoofer cable into it?

Looking at using 14 gauge speaker wire, removing the base board and running it behind the baseboard. My receiver and speakers are 8 Ohms and the run will be between 35-40 feet,
2) is that a good fit for wire?
3) Also looking at getting banana clips. Do i terminate both ends, I.e. at the receiver side and the speaker side, with the clips?
Remember I'm not an audiophile and this is also a budget build so if anything above is unnecesary that is a plus.

1) No, get a single 'sub' cable and use the LFE input on the back of your sub.
2) Yes
3) You can, but you can also just use the bare wire.

Monoprice is a great place to buy cables - you can save $ here.

6ft 'sub' cable - $3.88

Do you have HDMI cables? Get them from there too.

Everything is all ordered. Thanks for all the help, now the waiting game begins.

Got the sub from amazon, as well as cables. 45B, CS2, and 30 from newegg. with gift cards I paid about 230 out of pocket.
