Any speaker wire from an electronic shop will do the job. The bigger the wire core (dia) the better. Talk with the techie for more advice.

    That's why I asked as a "shop techie" was unsure as to what spec should ultimately be with the equipment I have.

How to hook up a Kenwood subwoofer to a pioneer receiver


It depends on the speaker and receiver inputs/outputs. If The speakers have bare wires, and the receiver has spring clamps, you are in luck! Check out what I mean by spring clamps in the image linked below. If you can give the model number of the receiver and describe the wires coming from the subwoofer, I can help a lot more.

What gauge speaker wire use for yamaha R-v905 Receiver


The usual gauges range from 18 to 16 with one limiting factor being the ability of the receiver and speaker terminals to handle larger gauge wire

Denon AVR-2307 Protection Circuit Activated permenantly


The speakers are 4 ohm speakers, a guy on another chat site sent me a link to the impedance curves http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/s...t-v2-fs/page-4

He agreed to that there was a mismatch as the unit has plenty of fresh air around it, plus all the speaker cables have been tested and installed correctly.

So, off to the store where I got it from tomorrow.

I bought a 2400 watt punch 801s amp that has two power out and two ground outs i've hooked up only one power and one ground and the amp comes on but as soon as i touch the speacker wire to it it hits one...


Check the gauge on the wiring. For that size amp you would need to use 0 AWG wire for the power, the speaker wire is just signal wire so you want to use regular speaker wire. (I have 12 AWG setup for speaker wires) What the two power ports (Neg and Pos) do is increase the amount of flow. Two power wires to distribute the flow of the current so you don't burn up your wires if your pumping too much juice. I started off with this exact amp running a single 8 AWG and split it into two and it burned up and blew a fuse after a couple of huge bass hits. So proper setup would be....
BAT(+)---FUSE HOLDER(60AMP+)---DISTRIBUTION BOX(30AMP+)====AMP
GND(-)===AMP
-- would be 1 wire pref 0 AWG splitting into more 0-4 AWG
== would be the 2 wires (Yes two ground points in separate locations would be better)
Thus finalizing you have a proper setup.
Be careful you don't burn out your alternator, this bad boy can cause some serious problems with a lower amp alternator. Let me know how it works out.

Your speakers have the wrong impedance rating. Check the Accurian specs.

Also possible you have short circuited some how... cross wire, bad speaker?

Two amp


I don't know why you'd set the Peavey to 2 ohm to drive 8 ohm speakers??? My other thought is... I wonder if the phase is correct. try reversing one of the speaker wires Left or right side.

Onkyo 705 receiver shuts off at higher volumes


I had this same problem and it turned out to be a twisted kink in the speaker wire. Run a sound check to each speaker separately (from your receiver menu) and turn each one up until the receiver shuts off. Check the wire to the speaker that caused it to shut off and make sure the +- ends are not touching each other at either end, and that there are no twists or kinks along the way.

Turning volume up on my Denon AVR-485 AMP causes it to turn off


Speaker Impedance:
When speaker systems A and B are used separately, speakers with an impedance of 6 to 16 ohms can be connected for use as front speakers
Be careful when using two pairs of front speakers (A + B) at the same time if their impedance is less than 12 ohms.
The protector circuit may be activated of the set is played for long periods of time at high volumes with an impedance lower than specified are connected.
