    I am trying to figure out what I am going to do with my speaker wire. I have the B&W 602's that I want to re-wire. One is about 4-5' away from the receiver and the the other is about 10-12'. I would probably try to keep the length's the same so lets just say there will be 2 runs about 13-15'. So the question is will Monster XP (I think its 16g) wire be big enough to bi-wire them??? If not what size should it be???
    Thanks every one.

    Yes that would be big enough, but going bigger would be better.

    I use 12 gauge for the drivers and 14 gauge for the tweeters. 16 would work, but I'd go at least 14.
