Hi.


I just wondered what the downfall of using RG59 coax cable

as subwoofer connection is? I know that video is supposed to

run at 75ohm, but what about analog sound interconnects?


Is this a no-go?


Thanks for reading,


Nicholas

Impedance effects don't really come into place for signals that are 100Hz and below. As far as wire effects go, it's pretty much a DC signal.

RCA connectors are pretty standard for subs and preamp sub outputs. Just solder the center wire to the center pin, and the shield to the barrel.

Yes I want to use RCA connectors. Then I'll do it.


Anyone offering a con among these pro's?


Thanks,


Nich

I guess the other thing to consider is that the gauge of the center conductor is big enough to transmit the power over the distance you want to transport it.

RG6 would be fine too. I used it for audio for my TV (which is not close to my receiver). I used the F-connector to RCA adapters for it as well.
