~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)

Can anyone tell me what thickness I'll need the TechFlex sleeve for the outer cable, thickness of cable pants and the inner red/black wire as well? The guy in the post above mentions he got '12 gauge Mono Price in wall 2 conductor wire' but I'm not sure if that's the same thickness as the one I got.

I'm assuming the correct TechFlex sleeve is any of these colours:

Thanks!!
When I made them, I used 3/8 flex with 12 gauge monoprice wire.

Likewise, the 3/8" for 12 gauge jacketed cable. If done like the photo, you also need their smallest, the 1/8" for the separate leads, cable pants (I get mine from KnuKoncepts via eBay), and a couple different sizes of heat shrink tubing.

For the banana plugs, I use Blue Jeans Cable Locking Banana plugs.

KEF R500, R200C, R100, SVS SB2000 sub, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 TT w/ Ortofon 2M Red, Bluesound Vault2, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer.
