    If I get two runs or regular 2-conductor speaker cable and stackone on top of the other and keep them together using tech flex and heat shrink.

    then on one end twist two conductors together to creat a single lead and the other end leave open as 4 leads?

    I see a lot of cables twisting, but can I just stack that cables together and sleve them?

    There's no problem what so ever in making bi-wire cables in this manner. Good luck w/ your project [​IMG]

    so i do not need to twist them? I plan on stacking the cables and at the leads twisting them. But I do not plan on twisting the body portion. Supposedly its supposed to enhance interference rejection, But i dont know if it will make much of a difference.

    Twisting can add some RF sheilding ability but speaker wire is not sensitive to RF interference since it's a high level signal, so there's no real need to twist. Most just twist because they have single conductor wire that needs to be twisted to keep it together while adding the outer jacket.
