    the 14ga wire turns out to be INWALL WIRE!!!
    does it matter?
    will it have any negative effects?
    please leave some comments [​IMG]

    Correct me if Im wrong but I doubt there will be any negitive effects. Inwall wire is built to reduce its burning characteristics in case of fire. Fire can travel along non-inwall rated wire through walls and spread faster.

    As long as you can tolerate the "look" of the cable (which I imagine is "white" or "off-white" in color), it should be no differnt from "standard" 14 ga. wire.

    It should work just fine. It just wont have that bright-copper look like the stuff with a clear jacket.

    Ah, thanks for the replies.
    Now I can rest assured and use the wire happily [​IMG]
    One more question, do spring clips only take bare wire?
    Specifically, for the AR HC6.
    Thanks again [​IMG]
