Is a sub cable any different from a normal analog connector. ie Qed Connect 1.
No, except a sub cable is often sold as a single lead, not a stereo pair, and is often longer than a standard stereo interconnect pair - otherwise it's the same.
There is nothing really special about a sub cable either - any well constructed cable with decent plugs and reasonable quality, well shielded cable will do (I say well shielded because what you don't want is to pick up any 50Hz mains hum from any power cables nearby - it's smack bang in the middle of your sub's input frequency range, although the interconnect isn't the only way you can get this hum).
In fact, any decent 75 Ohm video cable will do the job just as well as a designated "audio" cable - the cable's characteristsic impedance is totally irrelevant at such low frequencies (100Hz) and the cable lengths we are talking about!
