This Digital Coax Cable is made from premium quality RG59U coaxial cable with double shielding to prevent signal degradation caused by EMI and RFI interference. The conductor is made of 99.999% pure bare oxygen-free copper, while the shield consists of an inner layer of Aluminum-Mylar foil with 100% coverage and an outer layer of copper braid. This cable is ideal for conducting S/PDIF digital audio signals and other high-bandwidth content, but it is also ideal for composite video, audio interconnects, and other line level RCA signals.
The VW-1 rating on this cable indicates that the jacket has been treated so that it complies with fire safety regulations, making it safe for use through or within the walls of residential class buildings.
- Gold plated RCA male connectors
- Molded connector housings
- 99.999% pure oxygen-free copper conductor
- Double shielded with aluminum-mylar foil and copper braiding
- 75 ohm impedance

|Question: Can I use this cable to transmit composite video?|
|Question: How can this one cable be effective for use with digital audio, LFE and composite video?|
|Answer: It is not uncommon for the CE industry to base a signal transmission standard on a pre-existing cable format. In fact, it would be very inefficient to make a new type of cable for every new type of signal (even though it sometimes seems like they do it anyway). In this case, all three of these signal types were based on signal transmission through 75 ohm coaxial cable terminated with RCA connectors. In fact, any signal transmission standard that utilized 75ohm coax cable with RCA connectors can use these cables.|
|Question: Isn''t it better to use dedicated cables for subwoofer connection?|
|Answer: What are often labeled Subwoofer cable are often a result of Marketing Spin and/or a little Consumer Electronics Voodoo. |
If the cables are a result of pure spin, then the cables are exactly the same and there''s no reason to pay more for a cable that is specifically labeled, "Subwoofer Cables."
If the cables really are "Tuned" to more effectively carry only the low frequency signals, then that''s probably a lot worse. Most high end powered subwoofer manufacturers will tell you that they put a lot of development time into matching the cabinet design, drivers, amp and crossover network in order to tune the subwoofer and give it the right voice. This tuning is based on the fact that the inputs of the sub will receive a full frequency signal that the crossover will filter to provide the appropriate signal for the amp to amplify. But if the cable is pre-filtering the signal then it is in fact coloring the signal and causing the crossover to filter out of tune. Or that is, the sound would not be as rich and full as it would be if the components of the sub were allowed to do its job with a full range signal from a proper cable.
|Question: What''s the difference between RG59 and RG6?|
|Answer: RG59 and RG6 stands for Radio Guide. It''s a standardization form for coax cables and specifies things such as impedance (75 ohms in this case) and wire gauge. The RG59 uses a 22AWG (American Wire Gauge) center wire and the RG6 uses a 18AWG wire. That means that the RG6 is a thicker cable than the RG59 since lower AWG''s denote a thicker wire. Thicker gauge wires are ideal for longer cable runs. |
Our RG6 premium cables also feature more robust RCA connectors and are certified for in-wall use.
|Question: Are the connectors gold plated? What does gold plating do?|
|Answer: Yes, they are. Gold plating provides resistance against corrosion that would otherwise impede signal transfer and could damage connections on equipment.|
