Wow, what a great website you have! I will probably be purchasing one of your 1/4" TRS solder-point bays very shortly.

My question is regarding wiring a patch bay: what brand & gauge of cable should I use for the rear connections on a solder-point patchbay? I've done A LOT of research on this, and all of the info & images I've found demonstrate a rather thin cable on the back of the patchbays. I've always heard thicker cables are best for audio purposes, so I want to be sure I'm using the proper cabling in my patchbay.

Thanks in advance for any advice or information you can provide.

Long days & pleasant nights,

Hey Johnny,

That is a matter of opinion. ADC patchbays shipped with 22 AWG cables. However some thoughts are the thinner the wire the better the sound. Mogami is very thin and sounds very good.  
In fact some folks use only one in wire for audio:
Please remember that your audio signal path is only as good as the weakest link. So all components and cabling should be equal in greatness.
