I'm not sure if this is in the right place but if it's not feel free to move it, instead of closing it, thanks!

Now, is it okay to use the wire that's attached to a hifi speaker for connecting a head to a cab instead of using a dedicated speaker cable?

Aren't they both the same thing? I'm guessing that hifi speaker wire isn't shielded.

Appreciate your opinions, thanks!

What would be better is the AC zip cord. Like those you have on lamps, radios, etc.

About those speaker wires, they may not be heavy enough to handle the current.

just use a paperclip rubberband combination... gives the best tone.


...


there is a reason they make speaker cables, get a real one


Does the colour of the rubberband matter? Because I only have green

What do you mean handle the current? My HiFi amp puts out 300 watt at max, that's a lot more than my guitar amp.

How tight do you have to be to buy a head and cab and then not buy a dedicated cable for it.... there's no way you'd sink in the ocean dude cause you are water tight..!

I said it may not because I don't know the power of your hifi.

In that case it's ok to use 'em.
