    Choice™ Series 12AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire, 50ft

    Get the most out of your home audio system with high quality, oxygen-free, pure bare copper speaker wire from Monoprice!

    This speaker wire features two conductors made of high purity (greater than 99.95% pure), oxygen-free bare copper. Pure Bare Copper is a superior conductor to the copper clad aluminum (CCA) conductors used in most other inexpensive speaker wire. CCA is only about 68% as conductive as pure bare copper. This additional resistance is added to the impedance of your speakers and can negatively effect the sound.

    For the wire to have no audible effect, the total wire resistance should be no more than 5% of the lowest impedance of your speakers. Even speakers rated for a nominal 8-ohms, may dip to as low as 4-ohms at some frequencies, which further reduces the total cable resistance allowed in the wire. Using Pure Bare Copper speaker wire ensures that the total load put on the amplifier remains as close as possible to the impedance curve of your speakers.

    For example, a 16AWG 2-conductor Pure Bare Copper speaker wire has a total resistance of 0.803 ohms per 100 feet (both directions must be considered). By comparison, a 16AWG 2-conductor CCA speaker wire has a total resistance of 1.181 ohms per 100 feet. Assuming 4 ohms is the lowest impedance of your speakers, a speaker wire run can be no more 0.2-ohms total. 20 feet of 16AWG Pure Bare Copper would be 0.1606 ohms, well under the 0.2-ohm limit. On the other hand, 20 feet of 16AWG CCA would be 0.2362 ohms, well OVER the 0.2-ohm limit.

    One side of the clear outer PVC jacket is marked with an easily visible blue stripe to indicate polarity.

    Good quality speaker cable. I have no complaints.

    Excellent speaker wire, great price
    Just replaced my cables with this 12 gauge. I have high end audiophile level, extremely revealing speakers, and the sound with this wire is stunning. The wire is everything it's supposed to be, sounds superb, and is a truly exceptional bargain. Don't hesitate. It's that good.

    PROS: - Amazing sound quality
    - Verified pure copper
    - Flexible, easy to route
    - Great price

    CONS: - Doesn't wash the dishes or change the cat's litter box

    Excellent quality!
    I ordered this speaker wire after reading that most of the other stores offerings were for CCA (copper clad aluminum) wire. This is 100% copper and very heavy duty.

    PROS: Quick shipping, sturdy cable, great value for the money.

    M*nster Cable w/o the Price!
    This is excellent speaker wire...equal to the most expensive on the market (and I've tried them all). The price was outstanding as well. Thanks Monoprice for continuing to be a leader in the business!

    12 AWG speaker cable wire
    Great company, will shop with them again.

    CONS: None!

    i previously was using 16 awg rca wire speaker bought from 4maz0n, i really didn't notice any difference in the bass of my speakers (polk monitor 75t) maybe cause the 16 rca cable were already enough, but i wanted to try this one anyways. over all i think 12 awg is more important when u run wire for long distances.

    PROS: looks high quality

    CONS: stiff, hard to connect to speaker but that's expected for a thick wire
