The only connection I need is the optical in. The sellers tried to push a ton of wires on me and I told them no. They had every imaginable CATV cord, RCA cables, component cables but I didn't see any optical cables in their rats nest of a collection - plus I have a ton of optical cables from Monoprice over the years.
Again, I said I overpaid for it...I initially bid $60 for the whole setup including speakers but they wouldn't go for it.
because of the size of the room, I didn't want to deal with traditional HTIB proprietary plugs.
Also my wife doesn't like a ton of volume or as Jeff says "bass that will rattle your pant legs".
I did some reading on speaker gauge wires - seems like a HEAVILY loaded question. I will go with the 18 gauge if I have enough. If not, I'll buy something a bit more robust especially for the subwoofer.
Thanks for the tips.
Also I think the wire that came with the subwoofer was 18 gauge or possibly less but power was never a high mark of this system.
