Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.


Resistance tends to have the biggest wiggle room when it comes to wire. 16 AWG zip cord when used as speaker wire can be run at relatively long distance within a typical home audio listening room based on resistive loss, but even the most dedicated believers that wire makes no difference for the better may go ahead and use larger AWG zip cord, perhaps because it looks better to the eye, rather than the ear.

If there is any religious analogy towards the topic, it's not the cable advocates who are mislead, it's the cable naysayers who are transfixed by their hardened beliefs against matters they are simply not aware of, and refuse to explore. I'm pleased to know that there's enough anecdotal evidence found over the years that indicate there are open-minded listeners who breakout of their disbelief in cables as tools for better audio and give the topic a try.

It's all good on my end of the cable topic. It's their loss, not mine.
