It really depends on how much distance you have from your receiver/amp? I used 12gauge for my entire system, I bought a 500' roll on Ebay. Many people use 14 or 16, it really depends on how far the cable run will be...?

just as a general rule...

10ft and under, 16 gauge will work.
10ft-30ft, 14 gauge.
over 30ft, i would go with 12 gauge.

and dont bother with the monster cable hype.. some good basic speaker wire from lowe's or home depot will work perfectly.

He's currently using these cables (Tara Labs RSC Air 2) and wants a boutique cable name that will be "better" than these.

Joseph - most around here hold the belief that only gauge of cable matters. Use whatever you want... if you want to reuse the cables you have - by all means. If you want to buy new cables and want a brand suggestion - you'll just spark an argument here.

You can buy really nice cable from Axiom, at a pretty good price. With my speakers, I bought 50ft. It is all 12 gauge. Probably overkill on the length, but if I want to move them around the room, I can.
