Hi just a quick question. I have pulled a load of beldon 8723 cable out of an old installation. Its 4 core with 2 shielded twisted pairs. Each wire is 0.75mm leaving a 1.5mm pair when 2 wires are twisted together. I plan to use them like this a speaker cable. The conductors are tinned copper. Data sheet states the cable can take 300v RMS but doesn't specify a current handling capacity.
Just wanted to know if there was any reason from a safety point of view why I shouldn't use of his cable as speaker cable? Worried about the wire melting cause it seems a bit thin. If it helps the Amp will be an onkyo 609 and the speakers diamond 9.1's no particular thought gone into this pairing had the speakers already and got the amp for free.
