    I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum to ask this question but here goes. I'm upgrading my speakers and I was wondering if I can use 2 different guage speak wires as the lengths of the runs are different for my front/center compared with my surounds. My fronts and center length requirements are about 15 feet, so I was thinking 14g; my rears are 40 - 50 feet runs each, so I was thinking 12g for them. Is this OK? Would my reciever (Sony ES30) get damaged if I use 2 different speaker wire guages? Thanks JEFF

    it won't damage your receiver. you could always just make it all 12 gauge and pick up a spool of the stuff.
