    what guage wire do you use for your comps?

    I'm trying to decide what gauge to go with. I'm thinking 15gauge would be good but I just found a deal on 16 guage. what do you guys run?

    Re: what guage wire do you use for your comps?

    I've used 14, mainly because I'm a bit weary of having ~250w of headroom on 16 gauge over 20 ft. Not to mention I like the looks of bigger wires



    Hello GSteg it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks, why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with another member in any one of our forums?

    16-20 is more than enough.
