    Access™ Series 12AWG CL2 Rated 4-Conductor Speaker Wire, 100ft

    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 four 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.

    Each conductor is jacketed with color-coded PVC for easy polarity identification. The entire cable assembly is jacketed in a white, CL2-rated PVC material. The CL2 rating indicates that the cable complies with fire safety and insurance requirements, making it safe for use inside the walls of residential class buildings.

    I replaced my 14x2 speaker wire with this stuff. I didn't realize how much difference it would make. If I had know I would have done it long ago. Don't wait, just get it.

    PROS: Really, really good quality. Great value.

    CONS: None.

    good cable
    Cable is as good or better than anything I've seen near this price. Straightens and holds its shape well after unrolling.

    PROS: Quality cable at a decent price

    CONS: none at this price

    My wire had red, black, white and green wires. I made the mistake of putting standard sized electrical conduit in my walls for wires. This 4 strand wire is thick and won't fit with anything else in the conduit. This is a great time saver when running wires because you can do several channels at once. It is worth it to be prepared for more speakers in the future, and if you dont care about that, you can always set it up so you could bi-amp in the future if you wanted to.

    Sounds great, just as expected

    Great product, amazing price
    Very reasonable price in relation to the quality of the product. Outstanding price compared to the competition. The insulation might be a little more plasticy that higher end wires but this is a very nit picky complaint. Overall, very highly recommended.

    PROS: Very reasonable price in relation to the quality of the product. Outstanding price compared to the competition.

    quality cable
    Simple decision... if you need 12 guage 4 conductor cable for speaker runs... this is your choice. I searched around for similar products and Monoprice had the right price. Shipping was a bit of a factor but such is life.

    No brainer, order the cable, you won't be dissapointed.

    PROS: Cable is well made, easy to work with - even at lower temps, 4 conductor each with separate color jacket makes hookup easy, priced right especially when compared to similar quality cable from other manufacturer.

    CONS: my rating of 9 is only because a 10 rating would have a super flexible mogami type outer shell. But there's no real con.

    Built like a tank
    Wow... I stoped in my tracks and showed this wire to everyone ha. I have never seen wire so thick and well built.

    I dont know what the small piece of string in with the wires is for but from the build quality I am sure it is there for a good reason.

    exactly what i was looking for
    i would recommend this product to anyone looking to simplify wire installation with a quality product. do not hesitate to purchase.

    PROS: i was looking for cable i could put in the wall to hide with little effort and this was perfect.
    fantastic quality, well insulated and the 4 wires per strand helps with fast installation.

    CONS: cable is thick and can be hard to work with, but really isn't a con as thats what you get with the gage of wire and having 4 wires together.
