    Depends on your wire but 50 ft is usually the rule of thumb for most calls. The farther the distance, the more volume and quality you lose. 100 ft runs are possible with high quality wire minumum 14 guage and a very good amp

    I just finished up mine using lepai amp. I used 1/4 plugs similar to Drundel. 2 powerhorns and 2 outdoor speakers 50ft of wire each. Thanks for all the info fellas!

    For those using non horn outdoor speakers that have the spring loaded tab connections, what are some durable ideas for good wiring connections?

    To avoid someone tripping over them and yanking them out, I wrapped several rounds around he supplied mounting bracket and tied a granny knot in it. Haven't had any problems as that portion from bracket to connection point is only a few inches long and doesn't get tangled up in anything

    Also, what is preferred mounting of them, to a stake or in a box?

    I figured on the wrap and granny knot, I was messing with it and still wasnt happy with how the connection was. Dont like worrying about the little stuff.
