So I'm getting ready to setup my new setup (just moved) and I didn't buy any speaker wire because i knew I had a ton of high quality 16awg left over from my last install at the old house that worked really well. Went to start hooking up the speakers and it turns out I only had about 10 feet left instead of the 100ft or so I thought I had. Now for my question: I have about 500ft left on a spool of 20awg wire, and I'm wondering if there will be any sort of sound quality loss or signal loss if I run 2 wires to each connection (instead of just one) to make up for the lack in size? Each wire will be the same size and length, I just don't know if there is anything to do with the signal splitting between the two wires that could cause a loss/distortion in sound.
