My friend had about 90 feet of the Canare 4S11 (quad style) left over from his custom HT installation and gave them to me. I am currently running a Pioneer 811 (50 watt * 7 channel receiver) with JBL S Center II, 4 JBL S26 sattlelites, and JBL PB12 sub. My home theater room is about 20'x 14' and I am using Radio Shack's 16-gauage speaker wire all around. I confess that I am a newbie and don't know much about HT. I bought the components mostly based on recommendations from this site and at avsforum. The 4S11 is supposedly two 14-gauage speaker wires twisted together and resulted in an 11-gauage wire. I know that the bigger guage wire carries signal better for longer distance but the current longest connection in my setup is only 24'. Can I use the 4S11 with my system? Does bigger gauage speaker wire require more power to drive through comparing to the smaller guage wire? Thank you for the help.
