    Technically, there is no difference. The RG6/59 probably have better shielding than the RCA, but there wouldn't be a benefit that would warrant you spending money on it.

    RG-6 maybe? I've never heard of RG69.

    There's no RG69, as posted and RG59 isn't quad shielded. For audio, RG59 is used extensively in bundled cabling, for component or composite video+audio and for pre-wiring with bundled cable so BNC or RCA ends can be installed for using the VGA input on some monitors (VGA uses RGB + horizontal and vertical synch).

    RG6 is quad shielded but while you posted that you hear more bass, it may be that you actually hear more highs and mods with the RG-6. You would want to do an actual cable test to be able to tell what the real difference is.
