Question Suggestions for full-range internal speaker wiring?

Hello all,

What do you think is the best brand or type of internal wire for a single-driver design (i.e. directly to the binding posts)? However, I may decide to have a Zobel circuit and a notch filter wired in there, too. And if you have read my other posts, the driver involved is the TB W3-871S.

BTW I don't want to use too-exotic cables or weird ones like CAT-5/6.

Thanks a million.

How about 14 AWG hook-up wire from Parts Express? Or Tef-Flex wire from North Creek? Or Supra?

How 'bout going to the hardware store.

You can talk till you are blue in the face with me about resitance, inductance and capacitance.

These $300 sets of speaker wires to me is like putting gold plated wheels on your car when the motor is in need of a tune up. We are dealing with a full range driver here. No offence but I think the time you dedicate to soldering your connections is as important as any short piece of wire inside the cabinets is going to be.

Just my thoughts,

Cal
