    Hello everyone,

    I got some of the Home Depot 12g speaker wire that I plan to use for my L/C/R and it's already run for my rear surrounds. I plan to buy some spades and banana plugs from Accessories 4 Less to put over the bare wire for the front 3 channels.

    I think I'd also like to heat-shrink each end and maybe put some tech-flex (or some other mesh just to "spruce it up") around the wire. Is there anyplace where I can buy smaller quanities of this sort of stuff? I don't know too much about the heat-shrink, but I don't have a heat gun or anything, so I'm hoping for something that will work with a hair dryer or the like.

    Thanks in advance for any info you may have!

    Parts Express has everything you need. They sell tech-flex in 25' lengths (their price/foot is as good or better than most places). Their 3:1 heat shrink tubing is low temp and can be used with a hair dryer.
