Choice™ Series 12AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire, 300ft
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.
PROS: I checked all local vendors and Lowes and Home Depot and it was by far THE best price . Arrived when promised.
PROS: Great price and good quality wire. Fast shipping too.
PROS: Excellent wire, polarity marked, well insulated, 12 ga.
CONS: ordered too much wire
If you're on the fence as to whether you should opt for some fancy, overpriced cable over this - don't ponder anymore - you're not cutting corners by going with this stuff.
Monoprice, don't ever change - you guys are great!
PROS: Good wire, good price
I just used 1200' of this stuff to wire a friend's nightclub in Oakland and we saved a LOT of money.
Great wire, great price. Monoprice is THE SOURCE.
(I've bought a lot of products from Monoprice, always a bargain, but the HDMI cables are an absolute STEAL, as it this 12AWG.)
PROS: Great quality and price.
