thicker gauge speaker cables?
« : October 22, 2020, 11:54:06 AM »
the factory speaker cables in my consoles are so small and thin I could probably floss with them.

has anyone ever tried replacing the stock console speaker wires with Monster cable or something similar?


what do you think of this idea?   

should an increase in sound quality be expected similar to when these cables are used with other home or car audio systems?

I've used lamp cord for speaker wire for 60 years.  I'm not a fan of that fancy wire.  I don't see any improvement between that and what the factory installed.  Any "improvement" might be your imagination more than anything else.  Items like fancy speaker wire and certain rectifiers and output tubes, black plates, silver getters and similar horsefeathers tests PT Barnum's theory on a regular basis.
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.
