Default speaker guage from the picture

Can any of the gurus here point out the guage of the speaker wire guage looking at these picture. We just bought a home, which has been wired and speakers installed for multiroom speaker system. We are trying to hook up the electronics to make it all work.

The yellow wire says 16awc, but the black wire does not say anything. Can you all tell what the black wire guage is? Also, why does the yellow cable have 4 cables inside, whereas the black has just 2? Sorry for questions from a novice.

Also, I am planning to use the following components to connect to my 5.1 system in the living room along with the multiroom speakers. Please advice if they are good and can upgrade/downgrade any components. Again I am a novice, so any advice will be taken.

Components I have:
1080p/3d smart TV
3d blue ray player
5.1 klipsche speaker system installed in the living room
multiroom klipse speakers( 3 rooms) installed.

Components needed to buy:
Onkyo 636
Polk 10" Powered 200W subwoofer
Niles 4 way speaker selector
Furman AC Power Filtration and Surge Protection
URC MX 880 Universal remote with color screen
URC MRF 350 RF to IR emitter system.

pictures of the speaker wires attached.

Hard to do with no frame of reference. If your pictures also had something of a known size in them, like a ruler or a dime or something, then it might be possible to estimate that gauge.

Visit the above web site and print out the chart, then you can measure it yourself.

Edit:

Here is another chart that might help. http://elmec.com.au/images/wwb_img57.jpg

And a chart for wire gauge vs distance http://www.decktunes.com/images/grap...wire_chart.jpg Most speakers are 8 ohm but check yours to confirm.

Wasnt sure where to ask this question, but I am thinking of moving my Sony speakers to the the rear in my 7.1 system replacing the cheapo Yamaha ones, and getting some Polk 60s to go on the side where the Sony's were. Is it overkill to have floorstanding speakers all around? Should I just look for some good bookshelf style ones for the rear instead?

There is no such thing as overkill. That's what freezers and Ziploc bags for for.


Go for it. I have on 5.1 system that has only two floorstanders, and a 7.2 that has 4 (with a center that could be a floorstander).


The smaller one is for regular television viewing, some music, and so forth.


The other is to drive away door to door salesmen.


There is no overkill unless the freezer breaks down.
