I have a lot of ethernet cable, so can I use that instead of speaker wire. Ethernet cable has 8 - 24 guage wire in it. Can I use 4 - 24 guage wire as the positive (RED) and 4 - 24 guage wire as negetive (BLACK)? Which would make it 18 gauge wire because 4 - 24 gauge wire equals 18 gauge wire.
The thing about Ethernet cable is each group of wire is a different length the the other. 4 different lengths in cat 6 notice how each pair has more or less spins per inch or foot. If u used very long runs of e cable it would change your sound. Although probably not noticeable in short runs it will most definitely alter your sound on long runs. What that length is I do not know.
