14/4 vs 10/2 speaker wire
Building 7.1.4 home theater. The rack with amplifiers will be in another room, so there will probably be 80 foot runs between amplifier and speakers. The speakers are 4 ohm (M&K 150), amp is 200W/ch.
Should I use 14ga/4 conductor speaker wire (2 wires go to each binding post which makes it effectively 11ga)? Or 10ga / 2 conductor wire ? Or something else ?
Probably looking at something like Straight Wire which is mid-grade quality wire. These are made in USA and are actually 99.99% copper unlike the offshore produced stuff that claims to be this pure but is not, and the individual strands are thicker than say Monoprice resulting in less signal loss.
