Nonono. Spend megabucks and buy idiotic supercables. I still try to understand why cheapest doorbell wire is the Eliza Doolittle in the highs - but it is.

Possibly extra series R, and of course it's usually solid core in a sensible shotgun configuration. At least, the stuff around here is: Bell Wire : Telephone Cable : Maplin Electronics

Ancient Mariner, no idea what you´re drinking, but pour me one.
Series R does boomy bass, but please find an explanation why solid core gives female voices that extra

Not automatically it doesn't (re the former). Depends on the output impedance of the amplifier and the alignment of the enclosure in the first place.

For the latter, take your pick of any number of possible factors. It's solid core for a start, which, drooling nonsense put out by the wire companies aside, does bring some advantages in terms of long-term stability & less surface area to corrode. Then you need to consider what the (distributed) series resistance can do for the mids & HF; one example is that it can reduce the effects of back-emf getting into feedback loops etc. There are some benefits to be had in using a more resistive wire for mid & HF duties, although to exploit them fully you need a very efficient system (100dB 1m/2.83v or better), and the connections need to be very good. And so on.

There is a theory by Hawksford that strongly advocates thin wire, but whenever it's shown to a specialist in electromagnetics they've invariably never heard of it (since it was never subject to peer review), and when they look at it, the reactions are interesting. 'Garbage' is a sample comment, which gives some idea of the harvest if it ever were published in an academic journal.

Yes, some of the paper gets shredded by these guys but Hawksford stands by the work. And he is no slouch. There may be some truth in it. Jives with what i hear.

Here: Malcolm Hawksford - Publications

in the bottom section. Instructive to scroll thru what precedes it.

I have an FE206E in a BIB (horizontal) for center channel. Vocals are terrific. You can hear dialogs clearly
