I was always taught to use RG59 for subwoofer runs as well as baseband video applications. The reason for this is its construction. It is made with a solid copper core. RG6 is made with a steel core and copper coating. RG6 is made for higher freq transmissions such as satellite and digital cable. Since high freqs travel on the outside of the cable this is why. Low freqs travel on the inside so that is why you should use RG59.
Hope it helps!!

Will I be able to tell if the cable has copper vs. copper coated steel when I look at it in the store? Is there a particular shield thats better (braided vs. foil, etc.)?
