Theres a wire table here ,

The wire lengths mentioned here are from the amp and back again , so dont forget to divide by two for your length from each speaker , that means assuming an 8 ohm load ( speaker impedance ) and no more than a 24 foot distance to each speaker , you should be good with 16 AWG.
