I've narrowed my choices down, so now I can stop annoying all of you. That is if you answer me.
SO please tell me which of these are best for a cheaper Sony Dream system but can later be used in better systems:

Sound King 14 gauge $65.85 150 feet
Cambridge Soundworks 14 gauge $53.97 150 feet
Monster CP142CL 14 AWG/Inwall $35.70 119 feet
Monster S142RCL 14 gauge $65.45 119 feet
Monster S14 14 gauge $71.40 119 feet
Monster XP 14 gauge $71.40 119 feet

The one that costs, 30 cents/foot. The gauges are standardized on speaker and unless you are running more than 25 foot runs, you'll be fine.

The longest runs will be to the rear speakers which are 35 feet each so does that change anything?

The change the wires to 12 gauge. Doesn't matter what brand.

12 gauge for just 35 feet. Lol some website had recommended 16 gauge for below 80 feet and 12 gauge for 200 feet.

One last thing, for the .30/foot I read it was 28 gauge. Is that for each conductor. Also how exactly do you measure gauge. It is viewed here:
