    Access™ Series 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Speaker Wire, 250ft

    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.

    Excellent Value and quality
    This wire is very good. I like that there are more strands than some of the cheap wires found at Home Depot and the like. This wire is easy to work with!

    Best price I found
    I was very satisfied with my home theater wiring purchase. The price could not be beat and was delivered very quickly.

    Thoroughly Pleased
    Where to start - Pliable, costs half to third of competitors and the foot markings that I thought were gimmicky were real labor savers for running equal length pulls to each of the rears. I read a lot of horror stories about some of the other brands this one is great.

    PROS: Well built, foot markings, strips well

    CONS: None

    Easy to Install
    This made it very easy to install a surround system with in wall speakers.

    Wire quality is very good, outer jacket lends itself to threading through walls and electrical boxes. Color coding is always appreciated. Excellent value for this quantity of wire.

    Monoprice Rocks
    I always look to monoprice when I need anything they might have.
    This product is the same high quality as all of their cabling products, and can't be beat for the price.

    PROS: Cost, quality, customer service
    Cable length is marked on the roll, nice option.

    Great value
    Used to run surround sound in my living room. Good quality product at a great price!

    PROS: High quality, great price, an overall great value

    CONS: I've overpaid for speaker wire so long without knowing about monoprice!

    Pro wire all the way!
    Love this stuff. When I first looked at the wire it seemed thinner than the wire I currently used. After stripping the first end, I was blown away at the thickness and quality of wire. My other stuff had thick insulation but smaller gauge (eyeballing it) wire. I used it to setup a ceiling-mounted in-wall 7.1 surround sound system that sounds smooth. I swear my amp runs cooler because of the higher quality wire (better wire = less resistance).

    Great price & quality
    Happy with purchase - the wire is of a higher quality than I expected and is easy to work with. It is marked every foot which makes measurement easy as well. The price is far better than anything I've seen.

    Great Wire, Great Price!
    I could really care less about the spool, but thought it should be mentioned for those who may care about such trivial things. The quality is where it counts in this product the wire. Recently had an (unrelated) RMA to process with them, (which can be the downfall of lesser companies), could not be happier with their service! That confirmed it, I will be a Monoprice customer forever!

    PROS: Good quality.

    CONS: Spool is flimsy
