Access™ Series 14AWG 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.

Slight quality problem

Pros: Price

Cons: Quality

I historically have never had a problem with anything from monoprice in terms of quality. This wire however I discovered that the pvc coating on the red conductor had spots where the wire was exposed. I found this by cutting and removing the outer jacket on the right spot by chance, who knows how much of this is actually exposed throughout the entire spool. It was already a difficult run to make without finding this out mid install, good thing it's a low voltage wire with an outer insulator.

Pros: I bought this to run wire for my speakers in the bedroom. This is great speaker wire. I have used this and the 12AWG before. Very good quality cable. Highly recommended

Cons: None

Got this to run for my bedroom speakers. By-wired the surrounds. This is great cable and highly recommended not only for the price but the quality of the cable. Don't hesitate to get this speaker cable. Monoprice rocks
