    I want to move my Sub from the front of my room to the back, but it would require a cable 39' long. How far of a run can I make with a quality cable?

    bluejeanscable make excellent well-shielded cables. My subwoofer cable is their LC-1 model with Canare connectors at 25 feet long. Excellent performance with an Acoustic Research Y-splitter at the end. Your 39 feet should be no problem at all.

    If you want to save some $$ go to Home Depot and pick up 50Ft of RG6 coax cable with F connecters on it and 2 adaptors to convert the F connecters to RCA it will cost you less thanBlue Jean cables

    I have a 6 foot Blue Jeans cable connected to my sub right now and have been impressed with the quality of cables that they sell. I will be sticking with a Blue Jeans sub cable since I can get a 39' made for around $50. My only concern is the distance the signal has to travel. How far can you run the signal through a cable before you begin to hear a loss in audio performance from your sub?
