    Default Wiring question

    I am finishing up my collection of speakers. This is my first non-packaged setup. Once complete I will have 2 RTI8's, rear RTIA4's And a CSI A6 for my center. Sub is still TBD.

    My floor speakers are with 5-7 feet of my TV. My rear speakers will probably be about 20 feet each. I know this is a highly debatable subject, but what wiring would you recommend? We will probably be moving in 12-18 months so I don't want some crazy expensive. I was figuring I would need 12 ga wire. Is that correct? Thanks!

    You could go 12 or 14 ga. I would look at cheaper home depot 14 ga. for the surrounds but the front 3 speakers do better from the likes of Signal cable or Douglas connections who happens to be a member here.

    +1. That's the route I took and am very happy.
