Default Re: Anybody know...

if you need one length 350 feet long go to TES (torbram electric supply) on Adleaide. if it is for your home and need several lengths under 70 feet or so 16 AWG will do, lampcord wire SPT2 is right size for surface wiring. if it is to be enlosed in walls, floors, or ceilings it is required to be fire rated for flame spread and that is why it costs more for it. however what i used for my family room is i bought 3 16 awg 2 conductor (16/2) outdoor extension cords from Walmart for about $8 each, they are same awg as you would need for a family room and are FT-4 rated, same as speaker wire baught at home depot.

It really depends on the quality of the components being used. If you are running a good reciever and good speakers your best bet is to go with a quality wire of at least 12 guage, 8 guage would work better if your stereo receiver is putting out a good amount of wattage. If your receiver is putting out in the neighbourhood of 100 watts RMS per channel, then I would recommend 8 guage.

Just remember Gerald that when hooking up your speakers, that all the lenghts to each speaker should be the same length. This way you won't cause any time shift problems and should have the system sounding the way it was meant to.

Nothing like a good explosion to rattle my neighbour's closet doors.

Thanks to everyone for the replies.

If he's got a good receiver, he can time delay based on the length of wire. There won't be distortion if set up right. As for the rest, I agree. The better wire used, the better the sound.

G - depending on time and budget, you can get good wire at Forest City Surplus, but your best bet it to buy a large spindle. If you shop or can make it to T O, you can get wholesale pricing.
