I'd say so, but I'll say anything. The signal moves at near lightspeed, a few feet won't make a difference, as long as the cable is of appropriate gauge.

Check out this link. It is a superb article on speaker wire, IMO.

http://www.audioholics.com/techtips/audioprinciples/interconnects/SpeakerCableFaceoff.htm

There are some other superb articles on audioholics about speaker wire. There are few interviews with some of the speaker wire charlatans that made me laugh until tears were streaming out of my eyes. The interviewer really tore their pants off. LOL!

Doug, for the distances typically used in home audio it really doesn't matter whether short interconnects and long speaker wires or the converse are used. Long interconnects might be more susceptible to picking up interference, long speaker wires with higher resistance would have higher power loss and might show frequency variations with swings in speaker impedance. In practice, shielded interconnects rarely have an interference problem in home use and thicker speaker wire compensates adequately for a longer run. The longer speaker wires might be cheaper than the longer interconnects, especially if using very short speaker wires had the disadvantage of needing separate amplifiers. Overall, another thing not to worry about in the real world.

The long run from the den to the sunroom (zone 3) would be better preout to zone amp than speaker wire. The signal either gets there or not and is then amped.

Across the room. Run speaker wire.

Got it!

Hey Wid, if you keep it up, the Rat may figure out how to use the [url] command in his links
