    My amp is located 16' from the left speaker and 3' from the right speaker. Should I use the same length wire for both speakers or save money and use different lengths? Will different lenghts present any audible differences?

    Thanks

    audibly no difference. i'm a symmetry type of person so i like my lengths equal. you best be sure though you never need to move that amp if you cut it too short so leave a bit of margin to allow for forseeable positioning. worry more about your speaker placement and room interactions.
