Have you ever wondered how much is enough? Or how much is too much? Have you ever previously purchased a 50-foot bundle of speaker wire and held onto it for several years before it disappears completely? Well, here I am, purchasing a new spool of speaker wire and I am LOVING the excess this spool has. I opted for the 50-foot because of the value and extra wire it offers, 90% of which I will never use. I will search for the perfect situation where someone says ""shoot, I wish I had some extra speaker wire,"" and I will save the day by offering up the 40 extra feet I have left over. Someday soon, I will be someone's hero!
