    Default Where to buy 12 gauge speaker wire??

    I am looking to increase the efficiency of my setup by replacing the 16 gauge speaker wire with a butt connector half way up the tower with 12 gauge speaker wire that is one piece until it gets to the speakers and then solder all the connections. Where is the best place to buy 12 gauge speaker wire???

    Monoprice.com You can get 2 conductor or 4 conductor with an outer coating for next to nothing.

    I am about to pull the 4-conductor I ran up my tower and replace with 6 conductor with the outer coating, Mono didn't have it so I had to go with this:

    Had to do this since I am now running dual Harpoons for the tower. (well, about to be)

    how much power are you running that you will need 12 awg? My guess is you don't. 14/4 wire will be plenty for your needs.

    What gauge is the stock wiring? I'm about to add 2 more SXT's to my tower and am wondering if I should pull new wires.

    My stock was 16 at best, very small. Kane, I would order up a roll of that 4 conductor 12g, it's worth the piece of mind.

    Well 14 awg will provide up to 800 watts rms without any noticeable db loss so if you don't plan to go with anymore power than that 14 is more than adequate.
