Wire size for speakers and lights

I just purchased an additional pair of MC can speakers with lights to add to the tower. What would be the appropriate wire size for the speakers and lights? Since I never fold down my tower is there any reason I should install a plug connector about half way up the tower as done from the factory? Any advice on which dash switch to wire the lights into?

Thanks.

I am helping a friend wire speakers into his tower. I chose 14 AWG for a less than 25' run.

I think 14 or 16 gauge would be fine for speakers. The nice person that owned my boat before me rewired everything with 14 gauge. Works for me.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
