And if you're looking for a more high-end option, Audioquest has you covered with their silver-plated banana plugs. In equal power mode, you'll hear these differences in loudness as they naturally occur between speakers. The way the loudspeakers perform depends first and foremost on the resistance of the speaker cables.

In the rare instance that goods are missing, please contact us within 24 hours and we will happily send out the missing goods at no extra cost to you. If there is too much resistance in the wire it reduces the control the amplifier has over the speaker, although this effect isn't huge until you start going over oh maybe 1/2 ohm or such. Speaker wire is made from finely stranded tinned copper conductors that carry a translucent PVC insulation. This speaker cable has tight winding of the high purity CCA conductors and durable transparent plastic (insulation). Someday you may wish to replace your speakers and you might as well plan on installing wire to handle that.

I would either purchase a roll of 12 gauge wire for that or run 2 or 3pair of the 16 gauge per speaker. Each conductor is composed of 112 strands of the finest copper for superb audio accuracy and flexibility.

Beyond that it is just Marketing, talk to some high-end audio retailers (had a family member in the business, know the owners and it is just throwing money away). But I hear a very noticeable difference and I will continue to upgrade those cables and connectors whenever a good deal comes along. Bassface produces a highly developed range of 12v automotive amplifiers that will allow you to power any audio system with ease. At Smart Home Sounds, we are leading Home Audio Visual Specialists and one of the UK’s largest Sonos dealers. If the cables are run in the ceilings or walls of your house to conceal the cables, you will need to ensure they are rated CL2 or CL3.A speaker cable is an electrical cable with two or more copper or silver sheathed conductors that transfer the information between the amplifier and the loudspeaker. I do have to admit though that the packaging frightened me as this plastic item was shipped in one thin layer of bubble wrap wrapped in cellophane. There are also different types of connectors and a number of conductors that will be appropriate for different situations. You can also use banana and dual banana plugs to connect the speaker wire directly into the hole in the center of a binding post. The wires are too short to connect to my receiver, so I've had to use standard electrical butt splice connectors with 5ft of speaker wire to extend the wires.

As a personal anecdote, I was using some run-of-the-mill wire to connect my Klipsch Reference Premiere home theater system to my Yamaha Aventage receiver and felt like the speakers weren't quite performing at their peak. Any doubts that I have about the validity of high-grade speaker wire, power wire, and connectors have long been put to rest. I really can't hear a difference, and when I listen to a mono record with the one short and one long, the sound is dead center. Despite posts which suggest the OP use a heavier gadget wire, which the OP appears to be very much aware of, he is inquiring if there are possible downsides.

The thinnest wire you can get for your cable will depend on the impedance of your speaker and the distance the cabling has to run. We are so impressed with the build quality of all Sonos products, we offer an automatic 6-year extended warranty on all Sonos products at no extra cost, giving you complete peace of mind.
