Newbie Q - What cable can I use to connect a sub to the receiver ? Just a plain ole RCA jack cable adequate ? I am not getting a fancy sub so dont need a high quality one.

Thanx in advance

Yes, a "plain ole" RCA interconnect, and don't even worry about using a Y-cord if the sub has a pair of jacks, just use either one (unless one is marked "mono").

Using the better shielded coax cables can be a blessing for rejecting outboard noise. The longer the length of the sub interconnect the more important I find this, long low level interconnects can act like an antenna and any outside interference noise gets amplified by the sub. Good shielding is good security and yet good coax is cheap.

The AR sub cable sold at Best Buy is reasonably priced and decent quality. Radio Shack has some decent ones, too, but they didn't have the 25' length I needed.
