Hello all. Going down the rabbit hole and doing a major overhaul of my entire home theater system. I've got just about everything else figured out and am down to the wiring.\n\nI've recommendations to go with 4x14 AWG conductor wire and to connect them in parallel. For example, let's say I'm going to connect the center channel speaker and I am using Monoprice Nimbus Series 14AWG 4-Conductor CMP-Rated Speaker Wire. Presumably, I would want the black\/white wires (yin\/yang) to connect to the negative input and the red\/green wires (x-mas) to connect to the positive input.\n\nI have a Denon AVR-X8500H which doesn't have terminals that appear to be spade friendly, so it looks like my options are:\nA. One single banana plug with the paired wires twisted together (red\/green)\nB. Two stacked banana plugs with one wire in each (green stacked on red), or\nC. A combo of one banana plug for one wire (red) for the standard input and the second wire bare (green) coming in from the side bare.\n\nHow have other folks who have a 4x14 AWG setup handled implementing this?\n\nThanks in advance!\np.s. I've seen recommendations for the "rubber pants" add-ons for a clean look and separation, so I'm going to look into those.\np.p.s. How are folks going about distinguishing wires? I'm doing a full 7.2.6 Atmos system and am going to be running lots of wire through walls. I'm probably going to have to run them one at a time and measure\/tailor cut each one for suitable length. I've been using simple address labels, but they don't last very long. Are there color-coded jackets that are out there?
