Hello guys,

After reading so many reviews, I finally bought a Denon 1913 and a set of Take classic. I didn't set up the set yet because I need to buy speaker wires. But I did unplug my set in the bedroom and hooked up the take classic with my Yamaha HTR-6130 and honestly the speakers didn't sound all that. I had to turn the volume higher than I would with the Yamaha speakers.

So I'm asking for some help as to what kind of speaker wires I should buy (gauge and brand)

Also, could u please advise how I should set up the receiver for the Speakers to work best. (What frequencies and crossover settings and what not)

Any help is appreciated. Thank you

16 AWG should be more than sufficient and just use Audyssey to setup your speakers. As those are tiny speakers, the crossover levels will likely be set to about 120Hz. Review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig to ensure you do it right (eg. using a camera tripod or mic boom stand to support the Audyssey mic). Also note that for more questions, please review posts #3-6 in the 2012 Denon AVR thread linked in my sig and post any additional setup questions in that thread. smile.gif

Thank you for your response. I was thinking of going with 8 gauge wire as I don't want to jeopardize any quality or power. Also, why would the speaker sound not so loud with my Yamaha amp? Could it be how it's currently set up to work with the Yamaha speakers?

Depends on the sensitivity/efficiency of each set of speakers. Also note that you may find it difficult to connect anything thicker than 12 AWG wire in the speaker posts, although anything below 14 AWG would be overkill if < 50' length.

you are right, i'll go with 12 gauge. I'm still reading the guides on your forum. Hopefully everything can be answered.

Looks like regular speaker wire. Should work fine.

A 75ohm coax cable terminated with RCA connectors. The same as a standard composite video cable.
