    Hi
    I am having a move round of my gear, and want to move my sub.
    so i am going to need a longer sub cable! I have just found in my garage an 8m length of component cable...."Canare v3-4CFB 605 75ohm coaxial cable made in japan" written on the cable.
    Could i use one of the 3 lengths for a sub cable? Is component cable ok to use?
    Thanks
    rickyd.

    Yep, that should do OK. Frequency response isn't an issue, only possible problem would be induced hum if you run the cable close to mains leads - though the component cable should be pretty well screened. Give it a try.

    I use RG59 cable (75ohm coax) for my sub and it works fine.
