    ok,

    im due to buy some speaker wire for some new tannoy speakers comming,

    however im so confused about speaker wire, as i read on here alot of people say cheap wire is no good? you need expensive wire, other people say all wire is the same its a myth.

    other people say buy some twin and earth cable from b&q, other people say use cat5?

    im totally confused which is best or what to get :confused:

    anyone help :(

    How much do you want to spend? You could start with twin & earth- if it sounds good keep it. CAT5 is a lot of work! I chose 2 x 2mm OFC from CPC for £37 (100m).

    Shawn, what sort of a reply are you expecting, here? Some people reckon that speaker cables matter, other people reckon they don't - neither group is going to suddenly turn round and say something completely different just because you're confused. They'll carry on saying exactly what they've said before. :)
