It will definitely work. I have used coaxial (RG-6) cable for long runs for component video with absolutely no ill effects.
So you're saying I can use the coaxial cable to make a direct connection or do i have to add a subwoofer cable to the existing coaxial? Maybe I confused myself? I plan on getting the RCA connectors for each end of of the coaxial as mentioned earlier, is this right?
The cable will need to be terminated with RCA connectors on some way or another and I can think of two possible ways to do this.
The simplest way is to terminate the cable with RCA connections. For this you need two parts.
The F Connectors get attached (crimped) to each end of the cable and the F to RCA adapters are then screwed on. Now you have an RCA cable that can be plugged into the receiver and the subwoofer.
If the cable that they installed comes out of the wall in a fairly large opening, you may want to go with a wall plate at each end. For this you will need the following parts.
The F Connectors get attached (crimped) to each end of the cable. Each end of the cable is connected to the back of each wall plate and the wall plate is mounted. The RCA cables connect the wall plates to the receiver and subwoofer.
If aesthetics are a concern, then I would go with the second option. If everything is going to be well hidden, then go with the first option.
I have used Monster Cable RG6 Coax for a Velodyne Powered Sub Woofer, and it works great! No signal noise or loss on long runs. You can get EFX RCA Ends that you can Solder on the ends of your cable, or use the Coax to RCA adapters.
Enjoy your system!!
Can you use both types of cable to connect the subwoofer. What I mean is use the coaxial to run through the walls and use the subwoofer cable to plug into the wall jacks?
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
