    Choice™ Series 14AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper 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 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.

    Great Wire

    Pros: Full copper wire

    Cons: none

    It's copper wire - works as expected. It barely fits into the banana plugs I also ordered.

    Pros: Great price, Great quality, Fast delivery

    I'd been thinking about putting up some outdoor speakers for quite a while, I was shocked when I started looking for the supplies/parts I needed at Home Depot. I was able to get copper wire for less than their copper clad aluminum. I couldn't be happier.

    This wire is of fine quality and the price is reasonable. Monoprice is a very handy internet outlet that has not let me down.

    Excellent company- probably a good product

    Pros: Great customer service. I had previously ordered an HDMI cable to connect my PC to my TV ( came quickly-works well ). Ordered speaker cable because my system intermittently lost the left channel, so, after ruling out everything else I looked to the speaker cables. These appeared to be very good at the best price. Well, after further research I trimmed the cable ends and used a contact cleaner on the connections-Problem solved ! So I never opened the box of new cables so I can't discuss their performance. The company was excellent-perhaps someday I'll use the cable.

    Cons: None

    So far can't complain
