I would go with the Standard or maybe gold plated if they aren't (just for long term contact stability).





Nope, English isn't my mother tongue. But that's why I'm here. smile

i have tried both proper spec sub cable on a good sub and when I was poorer the rca cable on a wharfdale diamond sub and have not noticed any difference. but that's just my experience.

Use telephone cable from the 50's bet you will hear zero difference

You won't hear a difference, you won't fix AC hum... but if you are running a long'ish cable past a lot of electronics you may not get any interference if you've been suffering from that.
