Speaker Cables

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by salsjag, Feb 15, 2003.

  1. Speaker Cables
    I would like to ask the opinions of people who may know about speaker cables.

    1) I know shorter and thicker is better but is there really a difference between say a 12 gauage and 8 gauage cable to connect an amp to a speaker or two speakers together within 10', 25'?
    2) Has anyone been able to hear a difference between store brand cables (Sam Ash) and brand name cables like Monster Cable or ProCo?
    3) Is there a difference between 1/4 inch connectors and speak-on connectors other than the security the speak-on gives?

    I guess what I'm lookong to basicly find out is Does gauage,connector and brand really matter?
    Thank you,
