    20' is no problem with a good grade of cable. Monster or AR will do just fine if you are like me and can only spend so much:o

    20 feet for your subwoofer cable should pose no problems for you. I have a 30 foot one and it is just fine. Just a good quality cable is important.

    Monster and AR are good.. but also check out IXOS cables. ixos cables

    they have a few different subwoofer cables.. not many people ever think of them when looking for cables.. but I have had good luck with them. they have all lenghts to fit your needs.
    Available in the following lengths: 9.8', 16.4', 29.5', 39.3' (3.0m, 5.0m, 9.0m, 12.0m)
