I am playing around with bi-amping and bi-wiring. Is it true that you should use thinner speaker wire for the mid-high range and thicker for the low end? If so, how much thinner should it be?

Also, am I talking about the guage of the wire? If so, which is thicker 8 or 12 guage?

People have got good results with silver 32 and 24 gauge wire. Copper or silver coated copper is NOT recommended here. Yes, thinner for higher frequencies.

The lower the gauge, the thicker the wire. 8AWG will look like the wire connecting your car battery - thick like a tree trunk.
