    Default rca and speaker wires

    i was thinking on buy some RCAs and speaker wire..

    i have now stinger hyper series RCA, (the blue ones)
    and tsunami speaker wire (i buy it on best buy i dont know the model, but its a transparent-red cover, and red coper)



    the RCAs im looking for are these:

    the eks model is too expensive and i dont know if its worth it

    and the speaker wire i was thinking on these:

    on the Karma SS
    http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...ID=KAR12SS-100 SS Speaker Kable

    or the KL3
    http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDe...ID=KL3-122-100 Kable

    the kasa wire is too expensive, and again i dont know if its worth it.

    Im using the Karma RCAs...or will be. Ive heard many, many good things about them. I have them in my house right now and they seem extremely well made. Very solid construction.

    As far as speaker wire, the Karma speaker wire is good as well. Any more expensive and youre wasting your money IMO. As far as what size, 14awg will be more than sufficient for your full range speakers, and 12 for the subs.

    Im using 12awg for my full range and 8awg for my subs, but I'm a firm believer in overkill times 10.

    oks i could buy a 100ft package of 12 gauge for the comps and sub.

    but whats the difference between "Karma SS" and "KL3" if the price is the same?

    the KL3 says "Audiophile CL3 Rated / UL listed Speaker Wire" that sounds nice, but what does it means really?....

    also the speker wire for cars is the same as the speaker wire for Home?

    Without having time to look, I believe KL3 is their home wire.

    i already sent an email to knu but i think there is no difference between the home and car wires, becouse knu have the same models for home and car.

    but tell me if im wrong?

    and any other comments about these wires and RCAs?

    There is a difference between home and car wires. Home wires are in a clean environment with a relatively limited temperature range. Car wires have to endure a much broader temperature range and a host of other chemicals that could potentially damage untreated insulation of your wire.
