What difference is there between my present 18 or 16 gauge and 12 gauge in terms of the sound quality ?

 

It would depend on the distance of the run, and it would not appear as "quality", just volume reduction.  (Although after a certain point I supposed those two traits merge.)

 

And BTW, I use lamp (zip) cord.  (Yamaha receiver, Axiom speakers.)

The run is around 30 feet and the impedance is 4 ohms.

do you also use lamp cord?

Yep. And a hair dryer cord. One from and old coffee pot. My main theatre front channel is the cord from a dead vacuum. If those cords accepted 1000 watts, or more, off the wall...without killing me. They can handle speakers.

Not much. Awg is for length. Nothing else(in terms of speakers).

If expensive wire makes you feel bettter then great, just don't fool yourself into thinking that it sounds better because it doesn't.
