I have a Sanyo entertainment centre, a quality all in one system with cassettes, equaliser etc. I have expanded the system with some boom box 3000 bass speakers and I'm thinking of using some left over wire which I think originally came with the door bell. Do the other members think this will be suitable.
If the OP is serious please don’t be offended. My apologies. No, you would want a thicker gauge wire of 16 gauge. No need to spend much as conventional stranded copper, speaker wire is very inexpensive. Amazon, Home Depot, Best Buy etc...all sell it.
The 16 gauge from the Amazon link that grannyring provided should be just fine. That is probably what was used when the entertainment center was brand new. I am assuming that the stereo compact uses stripped wire ends on its side and not RCA jacks as was common at the time.
I just rewired my doorbell with a double run of Acoustic Zen Satoris and getting much better tonality and soundstaging. There are some people who say they can’t hear a difference between doorbell cables, but with proper setup and assuming the doorbell has decent resolution I’ve found that cables can make a huge difference. If you’ve invested in a good doorbell you really should consider demoing some better cables. I only have 17 rings on them at this point, but even my wife noticed the doorbell sounds better. I’ll report back once the cables are more fully broken in.
Glupsom, it's a G2711 super 2, cassette, radio record player. In its day it was great piece of kit but it's overdue a speaker upgrade, hence the mega bass 3000's I have tried the bell wire and all fine, it's the positioning of the speakers which is now the problem. There quite big and there's very little space in my lounge, so I've got one ontop of the washing machine and the other behind the sofa. There's a bit of vibration when on a spin cycle and so looking for a solution.
