Hi room,


I could not find the subwoofer cable long enough for my room (30 feet long) so I consider to make my own. However, I don't know what kind of cable is best for subwoofer.


anyone know the specs for this kind of cable.


partexpress have one kind called DAYTON PRO MICROPHONE/SIGNAL CABLE, is this cable good for subwoofer.

You can make your own with RG6 coax cable, F connectors and adapters to convert the F to RCA plug.

Why would you bother with F connectors and adapters? You can get RCA connectors that attach directly to RG-6, or you could use RG-59 which should fit most RCA connectors. Personally I made mine from Canare LV-77S RG-6 cable and RCAP-C77 connectors.


In general a subwoofer shouldn't be as picky about cable as other items, but you should get something shielded for a 30ft run.
