    I need some help on how to set up and wire my new Paradigm V5 Monitors. I have a pair of Titans,CC-290 for my fronts stage and a pair of Mini Monitors for rear surrounds. I am patiently waiting for my new Onkyo receiver. What speaker wire and connections should I use to get the best sound from my new speakers? Are banana plugs the way to go for connections? Thanks for your help.

    16 AWG speaker wire all around should be fine. There's nothing wrong with bare wire, but banana plugs can make connecting/disconnecting easier.

    You probably should go with a heavier gauge for the rear speakers, since they’re typically a much longer run than the front ones.
