My System Specs

Default What gauge speaker wire?

Greetings. I was wondering what gauge speaker wire I should use for wiring my speakers without breaking the bank. I'll be bi-wiring my front towers. They're 8 ohm rated at 160W each. I need to make 4 runs about 10-15ft long.
Centre is rated 100W and I'll need 6-10ft.
Surround speakers are rated 100W each and I need to make 2 runs at 20-25ft each. That's about 125' max. Should I use 12ga, 14ga or can I get away with 16ga? Thanks for your help.
