    What cables do folks here use or recommend for Paradigm Active 40 Speakers??? Also do you use RCA or XLR Cables??
    I want a good cable but do not want to have to re-finance the house to buy them [​IMG]
    I will probably have a pretty long run of cable to the farthest speaker, it could be up to 33 feet.
    Thanks for all replies,

    At the very least, twin runs of generic 12ga speaker wire.
    Better would be something like Tara Labs Prism Biwire cable.
    Best would be...??

    Um... it's an active speaker, I think he needs interconnect cables, not speaker cables.

    I'm just using the cables that came with the 40's. They are made by AudioStream. They don't look like anything special but are much better than the freebie stuff you usually get. The cables are double shielded and use an OFHC conductor. The jacket is white so it blends with the walls if they are a lighter color. Each one is about 25 ft. long.
