Default Re: No sound from speakers using 16 guage wire

Is the problem with my speakers? Thank you.
There must be something wrong with your new wired connection...increasing the guage of wire to the speakers can only bring more current capabilities; it cannot prevent electrical energy from traveling..just the opposite.
