After switching to HDMI cables for my video applications, I find myself with a lot of component cables. Is there any problem using component video cables as subwoofer (LFE) cables? At least it will give me some use for them...

Will work just fine. They're probably ideal, actually. They're simply 75ohm cables.

I bought some nice component cables specifically for my 2 subwoofers and buttkicker amp.

Cheaper in most cases.

They work perfectly.

Yeah, there's nothing special about component video cables. They're just three composite video cables bundled together, which are also digital coaxial, which are also marketed as subwoofer cables, etc., etc.

Thought I'd piggyback onto this. Just recently got my Klipsch RW-10d sub in and tried using my component (blue cable) as a sub cable. But am not getting any sound out of the sub.


My receiver is a Yamaha 663.


Any thoughts?


nm, I'm retarded. Fixed now.
