Setting Up Newly Purchased HTIB

This is probably a most common question ever asked, but, here goes--I recently purchased a Yamaha YHT-693BL HTIB and the speaker wire in the box is as thin as sewing thread. I'm not about to pay a monsterous price for "Monster Cable". The only long run of wire from the receiver is to the 2 rear speakers, which is 30' (right spkr) and 40' (left spkr). Can anyone recommend a 100' spool of speaker wire in the correct gauge-- 12, 14,or 16 and a brand name that is pure copper and oxgen free and reasonably priced??

2 places
http://www.bluejeanscable.com/ Made in the USA & good resonable prices.


Or


http://www.monoprice.com/home/index.asp Bit cheaper, most of their stuff is made in China, large selection of A/V & computer cables, wires, adaptors, A/B switchers & so on.


I would go with bluejeans speaker wire, I think their speaker wires are better then monoprice speaker wire & you can buy by the foot.

Thanks For The Info

Your advice was much appreciated. I am used to dealing with Newegg and never knew about either of the web sites you recommended. I will definitely be ordering 12AWG speaker wire from one of them. Again, Thank You!!
