About speaker wire
We ask you to buy the wire sepa-
rately, since we don’t know how
much wire you will need. We
suggest that you buy wire that is at
least 18-gauge or thicker.
Remember, the smaller the number,
the thicker the wire, so 18 gauge
wire is thicker than 20 gauge wire.
Before you run out to buy speaker
wire, read the ‘Placing the speakers’
section. You’ll need to know where
your speakers will go to determine
how much wire to buy.
For your records
Record the serial number (it’s on
the back of the speaker) on the
warranty card, and in the space
below. If you need to call your
dealer for information or service,
you’ll need these numbers. And be
sure to save your original receipt.
