Dimensioning of the cables to connect amplifier and speakers
considering important factors related to the sound reproduction.
A right dimensioning of these links keeps to aceptable levels the resistance, the inductance, the losses and the resultant damping factor.
From music power : W RMS = W / 2
From peak-to-peak power : W RMS = W / 4
