    Just watch out for the copper plated aluminum wires with major brand labels (like RCA) sold in the big box stores.

    It's not just the Gauge or Gage it's also the length. A short 16AWG is about the same as a long 12AWG.

    When I built an active crossover, I used some excellent electrocube metalized polycarbonate capacitors that I had stashed away.
    But now they made out of unobtainium.

    The ones the SY recommends would be a good start.

    It take's big manufactures with big expensive machines and a big quality control department to make good capacitors.

    I should point out that a "double pole breaker" is two breaker's linked together (one on each leg) in a single package.
    While in a "dual breaker" both breaker's are on the same leg.

    No, the leg (aka phase) buses zig-zag vertically down the panel.

    A | B
    B | A
    A | B
    B | A

    So a double breaker has an A and a B leg connection.

    But the IEC socket is 15 Amps. Gold plating is easily damaged by high current and once it's damaged it's not very conductive.

    Only use Gold on low-voltage, low-current contacts.
