hey i found this tutorial online about installin side grill LEDs to the XB and it calls for 20-22 gauge wire. now i checked out the radioshack and its real expensive for like a little roll of 20 g. so i was wondering what wires around the house are composed of 20 or 22 g. speaker or USB wire perhaps? thanks.

well 20 guage is jst teh size, so i suggest going to radioshack and seeing how big the wire looks and then maybe even messure teh diameter, then when you get home look around the house for wire that says 20 guage on the side or is pretty close to the 20 guage u saw at radioshack

o so it doesnt have to be exact, just like real close. cuz im guessing 20 guage is like electrical wire, which is probably different that like a the wire in the USB cord. so i was gonna take apart an extension cord (electric) and maybe use that wire.

It would be close to the size of good quality speaker wire ,like  the ones with clear plastic that you can see the wire inside
