    Hi,

    I have had my subwoofer for a couple of weeks (monolith df) and want to try and move it around but the cable to the amp (which came with the sub) is too short. If I get a longer cable (10m) will the signal degrade and affect the subs performance? Can anyone recommend a decent cable to get?


    Many Thanks
    Marcus

    I have mine at the back of the room, sub seems ok to me.

    You could try Mark Grant's or try a cheapie from cpcfarnell(what I use) no difference to me.

    I have a Mark Grant cable at 5mtrs and have noticed no difference in signal quality.

    Depends on where you electric cables are I think. I get bad hum with a 10m cable (mini coax) and poor hum at 5m. I went back to putting the sub near the front with the amp on 2m cable and it's OK - unless I turn the gain up on high - but this is a Monolith, so running over 50% gain is silly.
