I've often wondered why people would want to go overboard with 12, 10 and 8 gauge speaker cable, when the stuff thats wired in your cab is only like 16 or 18 gauge. As they say, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. So why would people go out and buy this stuff thats so hard to work with? (its almost impossible to solder 12AWG cable to a regular phone plug. The stuff just doesn't fit in there!!) Thats one of the reasons why I always know people are bull****ting when they say they can tell the difference between 14AWG and 10AWG speaker cables. Its just not possible for there to be a difference if you're using cable thats any heavier than the stuff thats connecting the back of your drivers to the input jack on your cab! There just can't be!!!! So this raises a few questions: 1) Would it be a good idea to unscrew the back of your cab to rewire the drivers with heavy gauge cable? Would it even make a difference? 2) Doesn't extremely heavy gauge cable pick up more interference and noise than modest gauge cable anyway? 3) Am I right about this whole chain-is-only-as-strong-as-weakest-link theory? Someone make sense of it all!
