componants, 14 or 16guage ? i got some 3-way CDT's and i picked up some 16g but it looks a little thin. should i use 14g? is that what most of you guys use for 6x9's and front stage?

thx

16ga is fine
the tinsel leads on the speakers are maybe 20ga so you are fine.

ok thx supa!

however, is there any performance benefits going up to 14g ? i assume no, but..

I use 12awg, but I got a 50ft spool of it for dirt cheap.
