What is biwiring?
Hi Johan,
I'll draw some fire for you then.

I have yet to hear a difference in speaker wire after trying many. Just as long as the effective guage is up to the power level.

I have heard problems in the connections many times.

Hmmmm...

-Chris

Agree,
Once I went from twisted zip cable to soldered lamp cord and noticed an improvement. Thinking there may be a cable issue, I changed to a massive cable (largest I could get my hands on at the time, same length as the lamp cord, and noticed no improvement.

At the risk of being like the proverbial camera film: Overexposed and under-developed:

Connections, especially for the speaker line, can be an unsuspected twister. Long ago I once serviced our broadcasting corporation's monitor amplifiers (Leak TL12s!). I could not find the source of a slight distortion, until a wise old technician told me to undo the output terminals, scrape them and screw them back on. Gone was the distortion!

That guy has long since passed on, but the lesson remained to this day.

Default Rip Cord

I've never heard of anyone actually using it as speaker wire but come to think of it "rip cord" just might add more air to the system since it is normally used to open parachutes, and that requires a lot of air.
