    I'm planning to wire some new speakers into a cabinet--what kind of speaker wire should I use, and where is a good place online to order speaker wire / jacks and stuff like that? Looking for somewhere easy to order from, prefereably with an online shopping cart, etc.

    Thanks for your assistance!

    Ok, how about just...what kind of wire should I be using to wire a speaker cabinet? I just want to make sure I'm not using the wrong stuff...

    ...sorry...all of the speaker cabs I've wired in the past have had wire in them already. Never wire one up from scratch. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

    For wire, go to the hardware store and buy 12 or 14 gauge, 2 conductor lamp cord. Cheap and you only need to buy as much as you want. They sell it by the foot. Go to www.stewmac.com for the jacks, etc.
