I have a def tech set up that I built myself from parts off ebay. The thing is that when I wired them I just used wire and prongs fom radioshack. Think it cost me like 19$ for the wire and prongs. Now I have a friend that says if I were to rewire them with high grade silver and copper wire they would sound much better. Is there any truth to this?

I use monoprice 12ga for my long runs to the surrounds... Spent like 20 bucks for 100ft of wire. Then got some spades from eBay.. Cheap!


Have leftover monster 1.2 and 2.2 m series for the front 5. Honestly I've had cheaper wire up front too and it's fine.

I wouldn't worry about it, John. Even if it is a smallish gauge (large gauge #'s), the lengths are short and FWIW, consider all that copper that's on the voice coil. What speakers did you wind up making and if it's possible, can you take a picture of the insides?

I would make voice coils out of gold wire with platinum leads. Then I would burn my house down and shoot my neighbor's dog.

That's the making of a country music song if I every heard one.

Don't get caught up in that type of stuff - The cable in the

Definitive Tech is fine.
