No sound from speakers using 16 guage wire
I have a really good JVC receiver but cheap Realistic speakers. I tried upgrading the speaker wire to 16 guage, but then got no sound at all from the speakers. The JVC manual says, "Caution: speaker impedance 8-16 OHMS." and indicates the front channel output power is "70 watts per channel, min. RMS, both channels driven into 8 ohms at 1kHz..." Is the problem with my speakers? Thank you.
