Hi, I once read an article, can't find it now, where the authors combined two 14 ga wires at the terminals to, in essence, create I believe the equivalent of 11 ga. Anyways, I can go with 12 ga (one to each) or two 14 ga (two to each) to my surrounds (they are not bi-wireable). Runs of about 30-40 feet, in the attic, outside under the eaves and back into the house. I am planning on getting inwall type of speaker wires. I am leaning toward the 14 ga as it is a 4 in one cable (4 insulated wires, each 14 ga) see: http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshow...number=100-768 ...because its white vs 12 ga which is gray. I realize I could paint the gray but would rather go with the white sleeve. Anyone know if doing this is a bad or good idea?
