    I believe you are asking what gauge of speaker wire you would want for a 30 foot run. You would be looking for 12 gauge wire for a 30 foot run. If you dont mind ordering online, you can grab some wire at www.partsexpress.com or, for something different, blue wire at www.knukonceptz.com. 12 gauge wire from Home Depot or Radio Shack will also work fine.

    thanks Tom, I already have some 16 (or 14) gauge cable from monster. Because I currently using really tiny cable (one copper and 1 silver).
    I'll change it this weekend.
