Maybe that's why my living room spins when I play my stereo.

Maybe this will help, simply put:

Paralleling conductors effectively creates 2 paths for current to flow equally, halfing resistance and increasing total conductor ampacity. The same length and awg size must be used. In a manufactured cable this is maintained by default.

Resistance Primer:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical_resistivity_and_conductivity

If you work or live in a large building, the main distribution is fed from the utility transformer with no doubt at least one if not more paralleled "hots" per phase to decrease awg size while maintaining the ampacity rating of the circuit. Cost and ease of installation are improved big time. If you have 4 wires, it is of benefit to use all of them.

There will not be circulating currents... Unless you put your speakers in a jetted hot tub. wink

That doesn't make sense.

Edit: I missed the posts between this and the original. Still, doesn't though. As long as the wires are paired the same at each end...

I think you have just been punked. That was jazzba's one and only post so far.

We may have been pranked but, hopefully no one less initiated, reads this thread and see's that BS and even remotely thinks its possible or relevant. Such drivel must be dispelled so misinformation like that does not spread. People like Jazba need to get a life.
