I would also use the Sewell Ghost wire terminal block to connect regular speaker wire from the flat cable to the speaker and also to the amp.
Any thoughts on this?
it's only 16 gauge , expensive , all wire is 100% copper so why they make a big deal outta that ?
I do know ribbon cables act as a antennae & pick up noise EMI & other interference more than a round cable does (it's the large surface area ) .
your better off running 12 gauge around the room edges IMO
also any added connections adds more resistance to the whole run of wire
meaning wire outta the amp to terminal block to thin wire then terminal block then more wire to the speaker
add banana plugs & then you have even more
each break in surface to surface creates more resistance , see what I mean 6 different contact points in one run of wireEdited by Fastslappy - 9/30/13 at 6:17pm
