I have the acosutimass 10 system with the cube speakers and I need to buy speaker wire for the backs. Does anyone know if 14 gauge would work? I called Bose and they mentioned 18 but that seems fairly thin and I believe their inwire adaptor accepts 14 or higher. Does anyone have any experience with these?


Also - best place to buy wire from retail stores? I don't have time to get from monoprice as I need this today.


And please, no why bose, bose sucks, etc. Thanks.

thanks but I'm trying to determine if the thinkness of 14 gauge is too big to even put into the back of the bose cube speaker.

Take some 14 ga lamp cord and pull off the jacket. You'll see a bunch of very thin individual strands of wire. Then separate out a single strand of wire from the rest of the strand bunch. That should be enough for what you need.

Since most of the people on this forum don't care much for Bose, most don't own them. So really, to know if 14g wire will work with your cube you probably just have to try it! If Bose says 18, then just use 18. If it sounds like crap, it won't be due to the gage of the wire!

serious answers would be great
Aw come on! That was funny! If Bose supplies 18 gauge, then there isn't really any reason to go with a thicker gauge.
