    Hi all, I was wondering what kind of speaker wire to use for my system. I have a Denon AVR2805 and a AR tower speaker, i will be pre-wiring for HT in the rear upper ceiling and was wondering what gauge wire to use, the speaker run will be about 20ft. Thank you

    Like John said, 12 gauge is best, but if you can't afford it 14 is fine. Since you're wiring the rear speakers, you'll need speaker wire rated for in-wall use.

    Doh. Sorry, missed the in-wall part... Do a search for in-wall wire there, and they should have some good deals.

    www.ac4l.com also has good deals on in-wall stuff from AR. I got a 100ft spool of 12ga. for $35 just a few weeks ago for a customer, and I think they had 50ft also.
