What cable to buy to wire speakers?


I'll cabling a sound system (Polk S15, s30, and danon x3500h), and I'm just wondering if the AmazonBasics 16-gauge (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006LW0W5Y/) cable will be good for all the speakers in a small room.

I'm asking because I watched this video, which says that you need different gauge depending on the speaker.

Well... he gets it almost right in the video!!

Yes, 16 gauge will be fine for all your speakers. If you need more than about 20M to any speaker, you could consider a thicker cable, but I really don't think you would notice any difference whatsoever.
