Best Subwoofer Cables in 2020



Mediabridge ULTRA Series Subwoofer Cable (15 Feet) - Dual Shielded with Gold Plated RCA to RCA Connectors - Black Review:


I bought this item to replace the old, cheap RF cable on my vintage Intellivision console. I was getting the fuzzy, unstable picture that comes with the cheesy, ill-fitting, and poorly shielded standard cables the console manufacturers originally supplied.
Upon opening the box, the difference in quality was immediately noticeable. The cable is much thicker than the original, and felt far more solid. Gold-plated connectors, plastic thumb grips behind the connectors, shielding, heft ... just clearly of better construction. After installing the Mediabridge cable, the picture quality issues disappeared, resulting in a crisp, sharp, clear picture with no interference, fuzz, lines, etc. The connectors fit snugly with a solid grip. The cable offers plenty of length and pliablility for all applications.
This cable is an affordable, easy upgrade for any vintage game console with a removable RF cable. Just add an RCA-Coax adapter and you're set!



Mediabridge ULTRA Series Subwoofer Cable (25 Feet) - Dual Shielded with Gold Plated RCA to RCA Connectors - Black Review:


You reach a point where you've researched every detail about the 'sound system' you're going to put together. You now know who Steve Gutenberg is, what ATMOS, Dolby VISION, HDR, 4k, HDMI 2.0 -> and a billion other terms that put your daughter or anyone unlucky enough to ask - to sleep. If you've stepped up your purchase budget for that internal debate for 1 sub or 2 - or HSU or SVS Subs - then you reach the point where you are now laboring over interconnects - should I do RCA or XLR - is their a difference - what length - etc.? Let me give you a piece of advice - when you get to this subwoofer cable - measure the length you need - make sure you account for hiding it. Consider the placement and whether or not the 'tweak' for corner load vs. where it looks good etc. will affect the total length. Once you get tired of thinking about this issue - click on the appropriate length and buy this cable. Long story short - 3rd (yes sad right) 3rd TV area in the home is the sitting room integrated to master. Example Yamaha CX-A5100/MX-A5000, Samsung motorized wall mounted 78" 4k, DefTech - 11 of them include BP 8080s, SVS PB13-Ultra and more - and flat out - I will assure you that I spent too too too much time analyzing everything including interconnects - I had the fever. I read every article from Audioholics to Steve Guttenbergs favorite lunch on Tuesdays - I remember one reviewer recommending that Yamaha Buyers upgrade their AC Power Cord for the MX-A5000 Amp I bought - I clicked the link and viewed his 'upgrade recommendation' - it was $2,000 for a AC Power Cord. I remember that a guy I know (Crestron Installer) had just finished installing a system for a guy with $200 speakers. I thought about the 1/4 Million Dollars Speakers and the $2,000 Power Cable - and my research stopped cold. My budget of $20k for my bedroom system was more than normal people should ever spend. I then purchased Mediabridge Everything - 400' 12 gauge ox-free speaker wire, gold plated banana and spade connectors, their terminated awesome speaker wires for my mains, their awesome FLEX Series HDMI (18gbs/4k) 2.0 Cables, etc. etc. It became very very simple after reading everything not nailed down - I could spend zillions and not beat their sound quality, build quality or speed. Specific to this subwoofer cable - the moment I used it between my Yamaha MX-A5000 and SVS PB13-Ultra - I understood what reviews meant by room-lock, impact, tonal quality and decay - I started thinking about me being that guys going to Radio Shack to by a SPL Meter (sound measure device) - I then shut myself down and realized that my pursuit of audio bliss concluded with these Mediabridge Interconnects - I am not going to start researching mono block amps discussing lossless or remastered versions of Coltrane's best on forums. I just wanted the movies to be dead quiet when they were supposed to be and to rattle my chairs when something wrecks or blows up. Media bridge everything is like Tonka Toys, Levis or Craftsmen Tools when I was a kid - flat out straight build quality - no questions - no games.



Mediabridge Ultra Series RCA Y-Adapter (8 Feet) - 1-Male to 2-Male for Digital Audio or Subwoofer - Dual Shielded with RCA to RCA Gold-Plated Connectors - Black - (Part# CYA-1M2M-8B) Review:


After reading all the reviews,you have 2 types of people,the ones that have no clue what this cable is for,and those that do and recognize the quality of these cables and use as intended.
I have been building HTs since the mid 90s,and honestly this is one of the nicest subwoofer cable i have bought,Ive bought monster cable,monster cable THX certified,vampire cables and even audioquest cables,for the price,these are a steal as they are very well made,quality components,the fit is nice and snug,not overly tight,and in no way loose,they have very nice grips,so you never have to worry about signal loss,
A Y cable is also beneficial for auto on subs,as it will deliver more low signals to keep your subwoofer active during use,and not sleep when the very low signals are sent.I was very skeptical given its price point,but thanks to the well written reviews,i bought 2 of them so my dual sub setup would have the exact same cables to them.I was really surprised at the quality and fit when i installed them,they are stiffer than normal cables or speaker wire,but they are not made for wall mounted or close to wall applications,but with a well made heavily shielded cable,what do you expect???
Overall,they look great,work great and come in at a very respectable price.The bass out of my Klipschs is super tight,clear and responsive,if i did not think they were worth it i would not have them on almost 2 grand worth of subs that hit lows of 18Hz,which is lower than the human ear can hear,and there is no degradation whatsoever,there is no reason to spend huge money on sub cables when these perform perfectly-give them a shot,if you dont like send back or whatever,but for 10 bucks you really cannot go wrong.
1 note,if you have an AVR w/2 sub outs,get a second matching one,you will be amazed,deeper richer bass w.no peaks and valleys in the output,and seamless transition,your ears are not drawn to the sub and its location,it just flows perfectly,ive read 4 are optimal,but since i went w/1 of the best and largest subs out there,i dont have room for 4,but man it would be awesome to have 4 of these big bad boys in my system,to do that you would you to change the configuration of the out cable from receiver,it would need 2 female ends on the Y side then 4 of these cables to go to each end of the Ys and then to each sub with the male Y end.
Overall these cables are worth every penny and more,you will not regret saving some money and having great cables to boot,they are a win-win and deserve nothing but 5 star ratings,people that dont either bought them for the wrong purpose,and blame the cable,or just dont get to review the actual product,not compare it to other 1s,as price to quality,there is no comparison,and when needed i will not hesitate to buy more,or different cables from MediaBridge ultra series of cables.Yes i would recommend them to anyone looking for cables that they make,and no none of my equipment is entry level,all top notch Klipsch RP series speakers,the biggest and best of that line are in my living room,so i would not skimp on cables that go into over 3 thousand dollars worth of speakers,yes i am an audiophile and proud of it,and 1 thing you dont do is skimp on speaker wires or any other signal transferring cables needed in your system,and these as stated are way above their price point in quality and performance .



Mediabridge ULTRA Series Subwoofer Cable (8 Feet) - Dual Shielded with Gold Plated RCA to RCA Connectors - Black Review:


Okay...I've been an (intermediate) audiophile for a while, and despite what one COULD pay for a subwoofer cable, one must think twice about spending an unnecessary amount of money before you pass on this one.

I mean really, you don't have too look any further. Almost all of my home stereo equipment has Mediabridge cabling! Why? Because it works perfectly! Each cable is well-designed and looks sharp. End-plugs hold on to receiving ends with a tight grip (no worry about vibrating loose). Gold-plating for perfect contact, and cables are flawlessly built. Absolutely have NEVER had a single dud in all the ones that I've ordered.

A big plus, is that Mediabridge goes out of their way to make sure you're happy with the purchase. On every cable purchase, I've always received an email to make sure that I'm satisfied, and if there's anything they can help with.

Don't just take my word for it, try it for yourself! These cables are great, and should cost about 10 times what they're asking! It's the best cable deal on Amazon!! TRUST ME!



AmazonBasics RCA Audio Subwoofer Cable - 8 Feet Review:


I debated buying this Amazon-branded cable but decided to try it after reading other reviews. I figured it would be a low risk (cost) purchase if I felt it didn't deliver. My Blu Ray player as line level speaker outputs so I connected it directly to the Blu Ray player's sub output and it synced up.

The RCA connectors on the cable gives a tight fit on both ends and connected snuggly to both the Blu Ray player and the line level jack on the back of the sub. Before playing an action movie I thought the cable looked pretty thin and was skeptical that it would deliver deep bass to my sub.

I put on The Bourne Legacy Blu Ray DVD and played the scene where the drone fires a missile at the cabin. This scene has a delayed shockwave from the explosion and it comes across beautifully in the soundtrack! That scene literally shook my old lath and plaster walled house! I had to turn the volume on the sub down because I was afraid I would cause some structural damage to my house.

A few other Blu Rays I've played (The Equalizer and The Equalizer 2) have scenes that also deliver, house shaking bass.

I liked this cable so much and felt it was an excellent value for the money that I bought another cable for friend. I'm very happy with this cable and would recommend it. You can't go wrong. I'm thinking other brands may be thicker but they may just have thicker layers of heavy jacket insulating to make it look more "heavy duty".

AmazonBasics RCA Audio Subwoofer Cable - 25 Feet Review:


Build quality is great, seems very well shielded, can't detect any added noise in my setup.

The big blue box store charges $20 for a garbage 15' cable. Not kidding - they have one that's over $200. (I promise, as an electrical engineer, you won't hear a difference for all the cable claims to do)

This is a no-nonsense solution that's shielded enough to reject normal EMI, and built well enough that it will last for a long time. The gold plated contacts are a nice touch at this price. If your sub is right next to your amp just use the junk cables that came with that VCR you bought in 1996, you won't hear a difference. For a run over 30', you do want something with low impedance and high shielding - and this gets the job done great without breaking the bank.

Mediabridge ULTRA Series Subwoofer Cable (35 Feet) - Dual Shielded with Gold Plated RCA to RCA Connectors - Black Review:


I had purchased a shorter (8 foot) version of this cable (which I found to be a fantastic product) but I didn't like the aesthetic placement of the subwoofer .... sadly the other location was 31 feet away (I measured) and required some basement wiring work and drilling (not fun).

Frankly, I was worried about signal loss at 35 feet from the my receiver. WELL, I shouldn't have worried. There is no signal loss that I could tell. In fact, due to the harmonics of my room, the new location had me have to lower the volume of my sub to keep everything balanced.

Amazing product.

DO NOT SPEND hundreds of dollars for some name-brand cable that frankly will likely not measure up to this mediabridge dual shielded cable.

I cannot say enough great things about this cable.

Of note, I used professional wallplates that were specially made so that I did not need to hav intermittent RCA connections (to wall plates). I'm plugging one end of this cable to the amp and the other directly to the sub line input (I find that connecting any RCA cable to wall plate RCA connectors cause a lot of signal loss - I didn't even try that setup with this cable).

Good luck with your setup.
