    Which would be the better option of these two considering they will be for 45 ft runs for my front 3 speakers. Is the 14/4 twisted to make 2 conductors better than 12/2 fine stranded wire? What would the awg be of 14/4 wire that is twisted and made into 2 conductor wire? All this wire stuff is confusing the hell out of me!

    Someone will jump in with the exact number but as I remember it. 2, 14ga conductors twistwed together comes out to right around 11ga.
    Which would be better? That is a lot more difficult to answer. I believe most people run 12ga and don't worry about it beyond that.
    Hope this helps
