I used some vdHull Clearwater.  Nice and flexible, easy to solder and for what you need inside a speaker cabinet, not expensive
Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

How can cables "match"?  I have heard that argument before.  Does it really matter if the <1m of cable inside a speaker, with portions going through a crossover with the skinniest wires imagineable, are different from the amp to speaker sets

Due to the shape of my listening room, my speaker cables are about 15m long.  Of the various cables I've tried, the only difference came with using QED Silver.  The sound became brighter

Well - if you have a R15k tweeter would you use R30/m cabling? Or would you try use the highest purity copper you can afford? - my passive does not have thin wires inside just caps and resistors

Now I am not saying you should spend R1000/m either - what you can and want to afford is what you use but I would at least go for something decent to start off with...

There are often short lengths for sale here.  I bought two odd-sized lengths a while back and have about 3m left.  Is any of the thicker cable that Zakspeed sell any good?
