View Full Version : *Warning* dumb speaker question

10-24-2005, 10:23 PM
I have an old receiver that has speaker wire connections where you push down the tab and insert the wire. I have 12 ga speaker wire and it won't fit. Is there a better way to connect the wire to the receiver?

Go with smaller speaker wire :confused:

OR you could attach your 12 gauge wire to some smaller gauge wire using whatever u can find and then put it intot he old reciever

Sure, if you wanted to.

12awg wire is pretty **** substantial for a home theater system, though...unless you're running an assload of power :)
