Gauge 12 audio wire for Bose Acoustimass

Hi, I have moved to a new home which has gauge 12 audio wires in the wall. Unfortunately those wires are lot more wider than the Bose satelite speaker's input. Please advice me an option to overcome this issue. Can I use any banana plugs ?

Hello poragadu, 

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community. 

 

We would not usually recommend the use of 12 gauge speaker cable as we use 18 gauge and we do recommend a stripped wire connection. However, if anybody else in the Bose Community has some previous experience with this, please feel free to chime in with any advice. 

 

Get back to me with any additional questions you may have.

 

Warm regards,

Yeah I have used the 12 gauge wires a few months back it worked fine for sometime but then my speakers stopped working abruptly. Please avoid using it.
