    Can anyone please tell me if Qed micro will be a good choice to wire my rear left and right speakers.

    Speakers are Gallo Micros, and this wire will fit through the wallflower stand, but the runs must be 20 m. long so i'm wondering if a 1.25 mm section is enough.


    Thanks.

    20 metres is a very long run. Is your amplifier several houses away from the speakers.

    Actually i have to run both arround one side of the room.
    That means i would need about 15m run for the left and 18m run for the right.

    I can't answer your question but I use Ixos 607 flat speaker cable which I can run under the carpet directly across the room which has saved me a few metres.

    I was running QED micro cable - 10m run to each rear speaker (approx) and swapped to some thicker cable at a cost of £80 (Silver anniversary which I dont particularly like but for rear speakers I didnt really care that much). TBH wasted the money - naff all change in the sound and even with such a long run wasnt really missing anything with the QED micro.
