    Choice™ Series 16AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper 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.

    One side of the clear outer PVC jacket is marked with an easily visible blue stripe to indicate polarity.

    I think that Monster Cable, audio stores and their ilk are making a very nice living from the idea that higher priced means it must be better. Personally, I don't buy it (pun intended).

    PROS: It's wire, how much more can you say about it?

    CONS: It doesn't install itself.

    Can't beat it for the price
    How can you go wrong? This is high-quality copper wire for cheap. The stripe on one wire is easy to see, and the two wires separate nicely with just the right amount of pull. Will never buy speaker wire from anywhere else.

    The best speaker wire
    The savings continue! I've saved hundreds of dollars by buying as much home theatre equipment as I can from MonoPrice. This speaker wire is infinitely cheaper than anything you'll find at the store, and it works just as well.

    PROS: -Easy to use
    -Sounds great!
    -Awesome price

    CONS: -None

    Good Stuff
    Good wire, doesn't feel cheap, doesn't make me angry at how much I paid for it.

    Ordered this after my old wire began to turn green. This oxygen-free wire should eliminate that problem in the future. Good wire, works well. Pleased with my purchase.
