Speaker Cable for Long Runs to Outdoor Speakers
We are having a pool installed and while the electrician is there, I am having him run conduit underground for outdoor speakers.
I am leaning towards powering these outdoor speakers with a 50wpc (class-D) Sonos ZP-100. This set-up would be for backround outdoor listening....not planning on any 100,000 watt Van Halen concerts
The distance from the ZP-100 (indoors) to the speakers could easily be 75' or more.
I do not want to sink more $ into this outdoor project than necessary. However, I do not want to cut corners and compromise the sound quality either.
Naturally, I am concerned about heat from such a long run of cable
Before I go to Radio-Shack for a spool of their largest gauge speaker cable, does anyone have any recommendations for good value, good performance, heavy gauge speaker cable that can be bought in long or custom lengths?
My only other thought, which I am not too keen on, is considering wireless outdoor speakers.
