Default F1 or F2 with MIT speaker cables?

Hi everyone,

I've got a chance to get a very good deal on some MIT Terminator speaker cables, but I am not clear on how they would work with my First Watt F1, due to the low-pass filter network built into each cable.

I know that a current source does not work (or works but sounds like crap) with crossover networks in non-full range drivers. Would a network such as the MIT speaker cable's do the same?

Alternatively, are the things that the MIT's filter network tries to correct for not an issue for a current source amp such as the F1 or F2?

Or would I be better off with some 12 or 14 gauge copper cable from Radio Shack/Monoprice/Parts Express?

Still trying to wrap my head around differences in current and voltage source amplifiers, hopefully answers to this will help...
