OK, you all are familiar with my situation I would like you opinion about banana plugs and speaker wire. I really don’t want to get too hung up on this because I know there is a ton of controversy on this subject which I would like to try and avoid. I think the GLS Audio Banana Plugs will work well based on my research. I would like to keep it simple with the speaker wire but I have been told to use the thickest wire possible for the best performance. I am thinking of going with 10 or 12 gauge wire for towers, center, surrounds and maybe sub (not sure if I am going to run speaker wire to the sub or RCA, the sub is powered so I don’t know if it matters). I would like to purchase one spool of wire and just cut it to length as needed.
Again my setup is-
Wharfedale Diamond 10.7 (Towers, 200W each), 10CM (Center, 200W) and Diamond DFS (Surrounds, 120W each) with an HSU VTF-15H Sub and a Donon 3312CI. I am going to set this up without an external amp and see how it performs without the external amp and add it I feel it’s necessary. The length of wires being run will be around 6’ for the towers, 3’ for the center, 25’ for the surrounds and 20’ for the sub. My question is focused on the speaker wire here. What gauge would you recommend?
