Which Speaker Wire Should I Use?
The speaker wire you use can have a noticeable impact on the sound quality of your system; even the greatest speakers won't sound their best with poor-quality wire.
The thickness of a wire's conductive copper bundle is identified by its American Wire Gauge (AWG, or usually just "gauge") number. The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire — and the better its capacity to pass the amplified audio signal. Most speaker wire available on the market today ranges in thickness from 10-gauge to 16-gauge.
When choosing wire gauge, consider the quality of your components and speakers, the overall sound quality you're trying to achieve, and the budget you're working with. Also, keep in mind the distance between your receiver or amp and your speakers — long wire runs can cause significant power losses and thus require thicker cable.
