Well, I'm a putting a rig together, and I have a question that I didn't find a good answer to when I used the search function. I have a Sansamp RBI into a Carvin DCM100 into an Avatar B112. I am going to run it bridged into 8ohms for right now. I will eventually add another 8ohm cab for a 4ohm load. What gauge speaker wire would be optimal for 700 to 1000 watts? If I can avoid it I would like to stay away from huge sizes like 10 gauge. I don't want to pay the extra expense, plus there's little flexibility. But if it's what is neccessary for that kind of wattage, I will go for it. I think a short run 3-6 ft of 16 gage would be OK. Ignore my signature line and correct me if I'm wrong. Also, I was going to use a regular 1/4" from my preamp to the amp (very short run). Would there be much benefit to use a balanced TRS line, or is it just a matter of "being correct"?
