    I have been reading my @$$ off the past few weeks, and I want to thank ALL of you for the support. I am going to use Paradigm Studio 40's for the rear suppounds and eventually I will add a studio CC for the rear.
    I have already ordered some 4 comductor Acoustic Research in wall cable for the runs. Each run will be roughly 50ft. and I can biwire the speakers.
    Will I benefit any by using a single run of 12ga and not biwiring the speakers?

    I am using DH Labs Silver Sonic T-14(14 gauge) on at least 25ft with my surrounds and it sounds great.

    I'm using 12ga on about 50' runs...but 14 ga will work just as well.
