    does speaker wire matter?

    would there be a difference in sound or conductivity between using just regular 8 gauge wire as my speaker wire or should i get the kicker 12 gauge speaker wire?

    8 gauge is overkill.

    You'll be fine with 12 guage.

    Kind of on this subject but 12 guage wire has like 2 strands (+, -). Well is each strand 12 gauge or is it both together?

    So should I wire the two strands together or can I run single strands?

    you can run single strands but it's messier and could be confusing with multiple speakers.

    Re: does speaker wire matter?

    what im trying to say is that i will either use just plain old 8 gauge(cheapo) or kickers 12 gauge which is oxygen free and all that other good stuff. but will there actually be any difference what so ever?
