Sorry to bring up an old subject, but I have some specific questions. I'm pretty new to this and I haven't had the opportunity or the money to try out lots of different gear, so I figured I'd check with the pros:
1st - Right now I'm using 12ga speaker wire to my mains. It's Acoustic Research cable that I got pretty cheap from parts express. I have 18 ga going to the rears and 14 ga for the front. Is this stuff any good? Do you recommend different sizes?
2nd - I don't have any terminations on the ends, they're connected with bare wire. I've heard that this offers good sound, but are banana plugs better? I don't know how to solder, so are the set screw ones any good?
3rd - I just bought a subwoofer cable from monoprice, it will replace the monster composite video cable that I've been using, any thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance guys, I feel pretty good about the direction I'm going with my electronics and speakers, but I really have no clue when it comes to the cables, so any help or advice will be greatly appreciated. I don't have a ton of money for this, so I won't be getting MIT's anytime soon, unless I win the free drawing they're having on their website. Thanks again,
