I'm getting ready to run RG-6 inwall for two subwoofer locations. I know quad shielded is the safest as far as interference, But I'm confused if I should buy RG-6 with a copper core or steel core? I know copper is better for video, but does it matter for a sub? There are so many choices out there, What do you think would be the best? Thanks for any quick replys I'm going to Home Depot this afternnon.

But you really don't need Quad Shield for audio frequencies.


But if your run is

For subwoofer, you aren't stressing the cable requirements at all.

Yes, I planning on running line level coax.

I already have one copper core cable run and I will be upgrading my Direct TV to a triple LNB high def line. I would hope whoever comes out to install it will use a copper center.
