The standard black and red wires that you clip the metal ends into the woofer. Those wires that go directly from speaker to woofer or whatever. What are they called, I will be going to radioshack to buy some of it to extend the lengths of my current ones...

There's no real special name for them. They are just double conductor wiring. If they seperate easy, they are sometimes called zip wire.

A bit, different gauges changes the resistence (Ohm). Smaller wire means more resistence.
