Some things I think I know (a little knowledge can be dangerous);\n\n\nSmaller gauge wire will work better at higher frequencies due to skin effect.\nHeavier gauge wire works better at lower frequencies due to power requirements and the these signals will use the entire diameter of the cable.\nLots of individual insulated wires increase the capacitance.\n\nThese are some of the things I think I know. I am not an EE.\n\nThe half baked idea part;\n\nWould it make sense to combine two\/four large gauge wires with a number of smaller gauge wires to form a single speaker cable?\n\nFor example a four conductor 14 gauge with a 28 gauge CAT 6. The cable would be terminated with 2 of the 4 conductor wires and 4 of the 8 conductor wires on each "plug."\n\nNot being an EE I have no clue as to whether the signals would go where I want them to go, or if they would appear to the signal like just one conductor. I just finished watching Gene's video as well as Paul McGowan's video .\n\nIn Gene's video he says the sound differences are imperceptible but marginally measurable. Paul said bigger is better for low frequencies, which I imagine Gene would agree with. I think it would be interesting to use Gene's test gear to test my idea, but I haven't got $10's of thousands of laying about for test gear.\n\nSo if anyone has done any actual testing, or has a solid science based explanation why it will or won't work, I'd like to hear it.
