what kind of cable for pot mod

hi,
a newbie question: does the wiring of the pots have any influence? can I take any cable I like? I ask because I see a picture of a pot mod, with some fat cable (something like speaker cable) and I like to use a thin cable (like the one for the LED).

thanks

Re: what kind of cable for pot mod

Well, it only depends on if you wire them Internally or Externally.

If you wire internally all you need is regular wire.

If you wire them externally, you will need a connecting wire like this one to plug into the joystick ports.

I would like to do the whole wiring with blue cable.

That looks fine. Any wire will work. Except enameled wire.
