    I have some car audio speaker wire. On the insulation is says Wired 10 gauge OFC speaker cable, made in the USA. I was wondering if this would be good to use as speaker wire for my fronts and center? It is blue in color and appears ot be pretty high quality (quite flexible). Other than that I have RCA or Esoteric 14 AWG that appears to be lesser quality. What wire do you recommend? I would get new stuff from bluejeans but I cannot afford any right now.

    For my rears I used 14 AWG megacable pure copper flat speaker wire (running under the carpet, 25 foot runs).

    Power isn't anything major...Onkyo TX-SR703 running in 5.1

    Thanks

    If you've got it, use it.
