My back is better today, and hopefully will be back to its cantankerous self by tomorrow or the next day. So will do a little work in the shop today.

Rob pretty much summed up the speaker wire thing, and I would emphasize the high quality speaker thing.

Regarding speaker wire and such, it is a function of how much volume you are trying to make, pretty much. I use fat wires for high quality speakers that you tend to run at a higher volume. The bass is the amperage hog, and high quality ones produce a lot of bass (talking about full range speakers). The fat wires are necessary for the amps, as I understand it. OK, now you have an expert opinion formed from technology from 40 years ago. You don’t suppose it has changed, do you?

Don’t think I would go the silver route, that seems extravagent. Just use fatter copper wires. That’s 40 years out of date common sense talking… (-:

Since my hearing is good, I just keep testing it. I play loud music over stereo systems at both shops, just to drown out the noise, makes sense to me… (-:

Actually, I do have hearing protectors as well, and for certain machines doing certain tasks, I tend to use them. Otherwise, I hate the devices, and just use my stereo system.

Sun is shining and the day is a wasting, time to get the shop organized…
