    Default Which Speaker Cable Please?

    Hi i've just fitted this

    http://www.jvc.co.uk/product.php?id=...E&catid=100179

    and just bought these

    http://www.alpine.uk.com/p/Products/...rs2787/mrx-f30

    http://www.focal.com/en/car-audio-so...kit/ps-165.php

    The question is which speaker wire do people recommend? i will be fitting these to the front first then sometime soon getting some more of the same speakers to put in the back, Not really going down the sub route these will be enough bass for me (i am old after all)
    Thanks

    If its to replace the factory speaker wire then 16 or 18awg wire will do nothing fancy.

    Honestly, the thicker the better, especially for long runs of wire. I'd aim for 16awg or thicker. Try eBay for Oxygen free copper wiring
