What is ARC for HDMI?
The Audio Return Channel (ARC) connects your TV and audio system with a single High Speed HDMI® cable and eliminates the need for an additional composite audio or optical cable. Connecting an ARC-compatible audio system to an ARC-compatible TV allows the following: Send audio from the TV to the audio system.
Is thicker speaker wire better?
A lower-gauge number indicates a thicker wire, while a higher-gauge number indicates a thinner wire. Speaker wires with lower-gauge numbers are better at carrying an amplified audio signal. However, for longer speaker wire runs (to another room, for example), it is better to use a thicker, lower-gauge wire.
Can I use electrical wire for speaker?
As everyone has already said, you can use the electric wire for speakers. They’re not interchangeable though; don’t try to wire your house with speaker wire.
Is 12 AWG speaker wire overkill?
The lower the gauge number, the thicker the wire. Thick wire (12 or 14 gauge) is recommended for long wire runs, high power applications, and low-impedance speakers (4 or 6 ohms). For relatively short runs (less than 50 feet) to 8 ohm speakers, 16 gauge wire will usually do just fine.
