    My Klipsch RB-35 speakers are coming on Tuesday and I need speaker wire. The speakers are 125w each.

    There a section in the primer on speaker wires that several people had contributed to. Also there is a recent thread in the speaker forum. Well, at least last week there was.

    Good luck!!!!!!! Use 12/10 AWG stranded high temp/high volt house wire from Lowes or Home Depot if you can hide it properly. I use white against white walls and tuck it under the base board when I can. 1000' spools are cheap.

    and if you don't like clear or white, KnuKonceptz has a very nice blue version. 12 gauge is fine.

    Yep 12gauge is plenty and not to start a flame war. But don't waste your money on "high-end" speaker wire. In the end it is all copper.
