Subwoofer Cable

Hi, at the moment I have a budget cable connected to my subwoofer, a monster cable in fact, but have been itching to upgrade this cable, so question is in this part of a set up can a different cable make any different to the sound ????, many thanks in advance.

RE: Subwoofer Cable

They do make a difference, but you may find it less noticable than say standard interconnects between source and amplifier.

I upgraded from Monster to QED signature subwoofer cable and noticed a tightening of the bass, but the difference was quite small.

Ok, so in that case don't expect too much, thanks for the quick and informative reply.

You're welcome. I suppose it's all about expectations and how much you're trying to squeeze out of your system. Smile

RE: Subwoofer Cable

i agree witrh sliced bread, i recently changed my subwoofer cable to qed performance subwoofer cable. the bass now seems more musical and deep, and slightly tighter too, but again the differences are subtle.

RE: Subwoofer Cable

can i just ask, does the cable to the subwoofer have to be a specific subwoofer cable or can you use a long interconnect?

RE: Subwoofer Cable

You can use a long interconnect. I agree with the other replies that any improvement will be very subtle if at all. I suggest you save your money and put it towards some new speakers and electronics where the upgrade will probably be more apparent.
