I got cable from Lamington Rd,Mumbai.
Price-
1. 16AWG- 50/mtr (5 months back)
2. 14AWG- 70/mtr

I found if you use thick cables than actually required, trebles becomes harsh.

So my Q is is there any formula to calculate cable thickness against speaker
distance from AVR for perfect sound Q?

I got few tables on web, but its general.
I also found if thiner,acurate cables is used ,you get perfect tonal Q.(related with distance)

eg.16 AWg for fronts upto say 5 mtr is perfect & you use 14Awg (thicker)
treble can dominates Bass.

What are your thoughts?
