RE: A lot more involved than wire gauge

AGREE. Good post !!

You are 100% correct about single 12 AWG Mil Spec ( m22759/11) rolling off highs inside amplifiers. See my post below. I will use it on the primary of my Power Transformers, from now on, but NOT "all over", sometimes doubled -up, as I was doing. Wanna retain those highs. Have stock now of the same Mil Spec wire in higher gauges, 14, 16 and 18, to try out next .

The 12 AWG can be used, nicely, amp to crossover, because that is a higher current situation, as the Output XFR steps the signal down.

Besides internally, my new-to-be-built monos, I will be rewiring my crossover, and path to ALTEC 802Ds from 14 AWG to 16 or maybe even 18 AWG next !!

We all experiment and learn. Thanks for posting, re-confirmed my journey .
