    Cables

    I own several Audio Quest cables, HDMI, sub woofers, they usually cost more than average cables, sometimes a lot more. It's worth the money to get something that not only works well when I purchase it, but a few years later it still works. Not all cables are the same, some fall apart not long after I start using them, or I get strange problems with my equipment related to inter connect cables, so I learned...go buy Audio Quest, if I can get it open box, even better and most of they're cables are sold by the meter, not foot so a six foot cable is not the same as a two meter cable, might make a difference.

    My Speakers Go Boom!

    Once again, if it's Audioquest, there's definitely some good quality built in here. To be clear, these are entry-level subwoofer cables but they really do the job quite nicely. Are there better cables out there? You betcha, but these are fine for most applications particularly for home theater systems installed in family rooms and other non-critical listening situations. However, if I were doing a dedicated high-end home theater or stereo listening room, it would definitely choose a model higher up in the Audioquest line. In the meantime, enjoy the Boom!

    Not what I expected.

    The cable itself seems to be doing the job, but I had not expected the small grounding prong that is attached to the end of the cable like some unwanted umbilical cord. I understand its purpose, but AQ needs to offer this protection built in to the cable on all their price points. It's just too inconvenient to have to get out a screwdriver and pull the unit out where you can undo the clip when you need to change cables or move the sub around. I'm leaning toward 3 stars, but giving it 4 due to my acceptance of their product line as being a reputable and solid solution to the over-priced Monster line of cabling.

    Premium subwoofer cable

    I purchased this in wall cable even though I’m not currently running through walls to provide additional insulation against electrical interference from additional devices running nearby. I would suggest insulated cables for all speakers regardless of setup. I’m running a klipsch 12” sub and the bass is deep and crystal clear. Nearby PS4, Internet, guitar, wiring etc has not caused interference. I’ve experienced interferences in the past with traditional basic wiring and would suggest spending a few dollars more on Audioquest black lab cable to proof your set up.

    It’s A Cable...

    This is a solid cable. The ground was useless to me as it would be to a lot of people. Audioquest cables are fine and I only got this one because I was in a pinch. Any well made subwoofer cable would perform just as well for less money. If you’re a cable geek go ahead if it makes you feel better. No one’s going to compliment you on your subwoofer cable choice btw... Solid cable, it works, no complaints The price wasn’t terrible which is the only reason I didn’t leave it at the store.

    OK Cable to Power Home Theater Sub

    Bought this cable to power my Martin Logan 10" sub. This cable works as advertised and my sub sounds great. However I am not sure how much of the performance would be increased or decreased based on the type of cable used for this. I think it is worth the money though as it is similar in cost to other cables and my sub does not have any issues with the connection. Would recommend this to others looking to power a sub at a decent price point for cables.

    What more can you say about Audio quest cables. This is an excellent subwoofer cable. Yeah, it may be a little expensive. But you get what you pay for in just about anything. It's totally worth it. All my cables are Audio quest. I love their product. I highly recommend the Black Lab subwoofer cable. Along with any other Audio quest cable. Great signal offering excellent sound. A must have.

    I'm not sure what to say about this item. It works great and I have no complaint with the item. I am not advanced enough in my understanding of home theater systems to know how the extra price of this cable is beneficial to a cheaper subwoofer cable. Currently I own a cheaper cable than this and I cannot appreciate a difference in sound quality between this cable and the cheap cable.

    Performs as advertised. Connects a subwoofer to an output device. Personally haven't experienced the need for a grounding plug but it is there if needed. Less expensive cables would probably suffice as would more expensive cables. For me, my requirement was met. Used Best Buy points for purchase which softened the blow.

    As with all the audioquest accessories I purchase, I rely on the little magnolia endorsement for quality assurance. It’s definitely a great product. While it might be hard to justify the price, compared to the boxer these are a steal! If you’re hooking up a couple of subs and you want superior quality but money is a issue, get some.

    I did purchase this at best buy upon recommendation from one of the specialists at Magnolia. I'm happy that i've bought this instead of cheap subwoofer cables as this made a big difference in the quality of sound when you are especially using a premium subwoofer. Value for money.

    Audioquest has earned my trust after freaking out because I added a subwoofer to my home theater set up and get an awful hum noise. Did some reading and gave it a try, now I won't use anything else for any of my high level components.

    I was working on new home theater installation within my house and ran all wires through walls. When i received this cable i was pleasantly surprised how well insulated and durable it was. Though these cables are pricy, they are good quality. Sub also plays well now that everything is connected.

    We have a packet to make our sun wireless and noticed that occassionally it would have a thump sound and the bass would come on and off. We thought this would help but didn't notice a difference so ended up returning it. After researching I guess that is just something to expect with wireless connectivity.

    Decided to buy the cable in the Magnolia section after conferring with the salesperson. The sound quality is excellent and made for an easy connection. This cable was actually $5 less than the ones in the main section of cables but had several upgraded features. I think I made the right choice.

    I originally purchased these for my new sound system, but then found similar wiring with the same specs (gauge, shielding, material, etc.) elsewhere for 1/2 the price. I returned this. Not sure it is worth the money.

    One of the great things about these cables is how thin they are, yet they superbly carry the bass. It used to be the bass cables had to be extra thick. I have these running to the Subs in my Def Tech 8080 towers, and my 4000 super cube. No problems, no issues, no regrets.

    No issues with function. It is used for my home theater setup. no issues with it after 1 year of use. base sounds great! but that also depends on the type of subwoofer you have. Wish the cable was a bit cheaper.

    Good Cable - But not Necessarily a good Value

    No complains about this cable. It does what it's meant to do. I give it 4 stars because it's a bit expensive. I wanted a good cable but didn't want to wait for one to be delivered to my house and this was available at the Best Buy store near my house.

    Nothing spectacular to report here as these cables do exactly what they are intended to do. I've been an Audioquest fan for years and needed these to connect a couple of new subwoofers. Excellent build quality is always apparent in Audioquest products.
