Any opinions on the advantages/disadvantages of large strand copper wire vs fine strand? How about opinions on different gauge wire for highs and lows? I have a couple types of Monster speaker wire, one in particular is the 12 ga. flat white cable, has strands so thin you could break them with your fingernails. I also have some thin strand 14 and 16 ga Monster wire. On the other side I have some Belden 5000 series 10 ga and some Canare 4s11 14 ga which both have strands so thick you could poke a hole in your finger. It's hard to A/B speaker wire by yourself but my impressions so far, with bi-wiring, is that the Belden 10 ga has provided the tightest bass so far. For the highs though it appears the thin strand wires, in particular the Monster 14 ga and 16 ga, have given me the best sound in my system over the Canare 4s11 (14 ga) and the Monster 12 ga. I know it makes sense that the larger gauge would perform better on bass than smaller gauge. But is it possible thin strand and smaller gauge is better for highs than thick strand and/or larger gauge, all other things equal? My runs are 12 feet or less. I'm sure a lot is system dependant but any opinions or comments?
