    Access™ Series 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor 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.

    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.

    Gets the job done well

    Pros: Smooth jacket for easy pulling. Full color jacket for phase identification. Very flexible (dependent on gauge I presume).

    Cons: Outer jacket fits loosely so when pulling it may slip a little, but not a problem since you're stripping an inch or more for termination.

    It's speaker wire - despite many people's claims to the contrary, one wire sounds as good as another unless there are other issues requiring shielding, etc. Just make sure the gauge is correct for the length of run and you're good to go. This was a short pull for me so the gauge was more than adequate (18ft in wall).

    This product exceeded my expectations. I haven't ordered much from monoprice but all that I have ordered is something that you would expect to pay 10 times for any where else.

    Worked Great for Car Stereo Install

    Pros: Quality, Price

    Cons: None

    Used this to feed speakers in my sons car. 50 feet was just long enough to feed a 4-speaker set-up with the amplifier in the trunk. Cable is nice and flexible and I think the outer jacket will give the cable a little more protection in places where it might chafe, etc.

    Pros: Very flexible cable. Nice outside jacket. Great quality overall.

    Cons: None

    Excellent speaker wire at an excellent price. It's very flexible and easy to route. I would highly recommend this product. It came packaged on a spool.
