    And don't forget to look at the SVS subs. I purchased one of their cylinders back before they started making the standard box subs and I have never regretted it. A sub is good when you feel it....not when you hear it. It will turn the pictures on your wall :ha:

    Velodyne makes good subs. You can also go here and read additional user reviews, etc.

    Bought the Velodyne Sub.

    Now I have a stupid question.....

    The LFE cable that runs from the Receiver to the sub....is that just a digital coax? I need to buy one. Any advice on how pricey I should go and where to buy would be great.

    Thanks for all the advice.

    Yes, a subwoofer cable is basically the same as digital coax.

    I would highly recommend Monoprice for your cable needs. They have amazing prices and the build quality of the cables are fantastic. I have bought all my HDMI cables from them and they are great.

    standard RCA singles will work for Sub (Pre-Out) to Sub (Line In)
    I'm not sure it's necessity to use 'digital coax' cabling

    Actually, the benefit that good, digital coax provides is in protection from EMI interference. Standard RCA cables are poorly insulated. A decent digital coax cable would have one to two dense braided shields that would prevent hum from nearby power cords or other 60 cycle sources. Unless you are pretty diligent in your cord management, most people have a hard time preventing longer runs like you can have for subwoofers from power cords leading from components, TVs or even your power strip or power center.

    Monoprice sells really high quality cables for a fraction of what you will buy at any B&M store...and definitely cheaper than the rip off Monster cables.

    60cycle hum sure would be noticeable in a sub .. :yes:
