I have a denon 1712 on the way, and have pioneer fs52's and c22. Where's the best place to buy my wiring? Certain gauge style most prefer? I've never hooked up a home theatre so not sure if I need any kind of special connections lol. Any help is much appreciated!

Your local hardware store. 12/14 gauge is preferred.
The same stuff plugging the AVR into the wall. Lamp cord.
If you really want banana plugs, buy those as well. But banana plugs are "useless" if not soldered to the ends. So if you don't know how to use a soldering gun...don't worry about spades/banana/tips of any kind.

And if you find you need HDMI cables or digital cables to hook up your components, try Monoprice.com. They have great quality and prices.

Yep, copper is copper.
I have some outdoor speakers that are mounted in shrubs. I have dual RG6 running to them as speaker wire. Why?
Needed something that could withstand the weed whacker.

Guess what I'm using as the speaker wire from an Onkyo TX NR1008 into a BIC DV62CLRS...
The cord I took off an iron(you know...ironing your clothes) when it died...and before it went in the trash. It was exactly the right length...and the end "off the iron" was already stripped for me.
