Does it really matter if the wire lengths to the speakers on the HT-S790 are not all the same length? If I use 16 gauge on all runs (the longest being 40 feet) will that be okay?


Thanks

Yes, 16ga is fine for runs up to and slightly over 50'.


The recommened lengths ususally go.


Up go 50', 16ga is fine

50 - 100', 14ga

over 100', 12ga


I use 14ga for all my speaker wiring as the price difference is minimal compaired to 16 ga and I know I don't have any runs over 100'.

I meant can you have different lengths of wire running to your back 4 speakers?


It just seems like a waste to cut 4 wires 40 feet when only one is 40 feet and the others are like 25 feet and 2 at 20 feet
