I actually have heard a difference in speaker cables once - albeit in
a system with six woofers wired in parallel. The resulting 2 ohm
impedance required a serious Phase Linear 800 watt amplifier and some
really big speaker cables to sound half-decent. These speakers,
driven by a 100W consumer Kenwood amp and/or 16 gauge zip cord,
sounded rather thin.
Of course, the solution was 12 gauge zip cord that cost 15 cents per foot.
