    Default Speaker Wire Gauge?

    This is the problem I got RTi A5 / CSi A6 / Fxi 5 should I use 12guage or 14 gauge wire. I'm getting a good deal 100ft 12gauge= $23.00 and 100ft 14 gauge= 18.50.

    What kind of speaker wire is it? I would focus more on a quality set of speaker wires rather than just get the thickest possible. Thicker doesn't always mean better.

    Both 12/14 guage will do just fine. You might not notice any difference between the two sizes.

    Keep in mind the length to the speaker. If it's a long run, then a little heavier guage could be a benefit.

    If gauge is your focus, you are missing the point.
