I just purchased a spool of 12guage speaker wire, and brought it home to find out that it's too big to fit in my speaker terminals, and the receiver's terminals also. I went to Radio Shack, and picked up some crimping banana plugs, but those are too big as well. I really hope that someone can tell me what to do, because as of now, I'm sitting with a spool of wire that I can't use. Any input is appreciated. Thanks, Derek.
