    Speaker cables are definitely overpriced in most places, but remember that you need to be looking at the bottom half of that page for wire of a thick enough gauge to handle some of the more powerful amplifiers out there.

    Yeah , I just bought a Harman Kardon pm 650 ( apparently about 70 Watts) and some exterior speakers. Probably will need a pair of cables about 20 mtrs long I would think.What sort of gauge would you think I'd need? 2.5 mm or 4 mm? :)

    Thanks for that. Dont know if Ive done right but I bought a pair of plant pot speakers from ajbaudio called Tubthumpers. I bought them on a whim and have no idea whether they'll be suitable or not. Time will tell :rolleyes:
