I use Cardas Golden Cross legacy cables.
Made for Magnepan speakers and the best I have every tried.
They can still be found used on the web.
5.5 awg. effective gauge wires.

WHen I had Magnepan 3.6 speakers I used Kimber 8TC.
I still use the same speaker wires for my Magnepan 20.7 speakers.
It is an excellent speaker cable for less money than many out there.
Mine have WBT banana connectors at the Speaker end. And common copper spades at the amp end..
