    Guys,

    Can you please put my mind at ease on the above.

    I bought 2 types of 4 core 0.75mm2 & 1.0mm2 (cause the shop hadn't enough of the 1.0mm2 stuff to do all)

    I've used the 1.0mm2 for the front 3 speakers and the 0.75mm2 for the 4 surround speakers.

    What i've done is pair 2 wires for each + & -.

    So my question is, is 2 X 0.75mm2 paired together at each end enough for my speakers? Should i buy thicker stuff, as i want the best out of it.

    My amp is Pioneer AX5i set to 6 ohms and powering 2 X Canton CD100's and 2 X Canton CD50's as the surrounds and surround backs.

    Thanks
    Paddy

    It would be fine before you doubled up the conductors, so now it's twice as fine. :)

    Cheers eviljohn.

    Still a bit brainwashed with speaker cable from speaker cable companies and just needed to be sure it would suffice.

    Still find it hard to believe €25 of 4 core is what i'm using, when before i joined the forum i was adament at spending about €190 for Monitor Audio Pure Flow cable.

    More :beer: money :clap:
