Default Which AT speaker wire is best for this setup

100ft of Audio Technix OFC 8ga is $149.99 - 735 strands / 6.5mm
100ft of Audio Technix OFC 10ga is $85.99 - 462 strands / 5.5mm

Which would you go with for 4 xfl 15s on 4.5K. I just don't think the price difference of the 8ga is worth it. Thoughts?

If you plan on running each sub into a set of terminals, do the 8 gauge, if you plan on wiring all together, then use the 10, but you'll be trimming wire, i would use 10 and run each to a set of terminals, 8 gauge is really over kill unless you were running the 4.5k to say 2-15"s

It's cheaper ordering 100ft. I figure I will use it eventually anyway

i used 25ft to wire up my 4 18's so if u order 100ft thats alittle over kill and your going to have 75ft left over. but i'd get the 10gauge and save some money. 10gauge will work fine
