Tech Tip: How Do I Figure out the Wire Gauge?
Wire gauge can be confusing but remember that the lower the gauge number the longer the run. For runs 80 feet or under, 16 gauge wire will work fine. If you're running cable from 80-200 feet, go with a 14 gauge. If your run exceeds 200 feet, consider using a 12 gauge cable.
Tech Tip: Plan Ahead when Running Cable
There's nothing more frustrating than running short on a cable run. Before you run AV cable, always plan for more than you really need. Carefully measure your cable route and don’t forget to take into account corners and obstacles that your cable may have to snake around. Remember! Don't run A/V cables too close to power cables—noise can seep in and affect picture or sound quality.
