Technical and scientific discussion of amps, cables and other topics.

RE: Instantaneous current demand and wire gauge?

If there is a science behind wire gauge and current delivery it probably applies to power cords, not speaker cables. Otherwise how do you explain the super performance of the Omega Mikro speaker cables from Mapleshade the conductor of which comes in at 54 gauge? By contrast power cords for 20 amp situations have to be much larger in diameter than for 15 amp situations, no?
