Tube or transistor?
Tube...VTL ST 85
This is tough. Heavier gauge will flatten the frequency response, how much depends on how low the gauge. The thicker gauge minimizes the interaction between the speakers bumpy impedance curve and the low damping factor of a tube amp.
But two things. You may prefer the less flat frequency response. It could the perfect tone control for you. And thicker wire usually has higher inductance which could make the highs duller. And for really flat with a tube amp you probably need something like the old Fulton Gold which is thick enough to start a jet engine.
