    You can get unmeasurably low inductance with either braided or twisted Litz wire made from 27-32 twisted pairs of Cat5. You'll sleep really well knowing that there will be no inductive attenuation of any 40 kHz signals sent to your speakers.
    That's important for driving your dog crazy ;)

      Some observations by Rod Elliott on the subject of speaker cable: http://sound.whsites.net/cable-z.htm

      My takeaway is to use whatever wire is large enough gauge and convenient, and RF terminate the speaker end with the suggested RC network to keep your amp happy.
