    Access™ Series 16AWG 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.

    Great Budget Speaker Cable
    Its very cheap & high quality cable.With my Yamaha RX-V667 & Tannoy F1,I get clean & full range sound.I have used coastlier Supra classic -4,but this cable rocks.Treble is clean & sweat unlike little bright with Supra.Bass has good definition & impact.this cable resembles chord company silver screen cable which is 15awg.I have heard that 5star cable too & this one from monoprice is not too behind.



    PROS: Great sound.
    Cheaper.
    Good built.

    CONS: Still not found any.

    Grest Product
    Ive used this product many times and have never had a bad roll. I've run it through walls, under carpet, across attics and along baseboards. Its reasonably discreet (against a white wall) and carries sound as well as any top end cable I have ever used

    PROS: Easy to pull
    Jacket is durable
    Sound is Excellent

    CONS: None

    Good for Speakers!
    I love this wire. I originally bought this wire on fleabay at a higher price because I didn't know Monoprice sold it. This wire is great for speakers!

    PROS: High Quality

    CHEAP!

    Easy to Strip

    Very flexible

    CONS: None!

    Good value speaker cable
    5/5

    PROS: This is a great valued speaker cable, whether running in-wall or not. Outer sheathing protects the two leads if running in-wall. Recommended.

    CONS: none

    Wish it was offered in more lengths
    Good overall transmission though. Using my amp's B zone for the garage didn't require much more amplification than the theater does.

    PROS: Works great and was easy to work with.

    CONS: A bit bulkier than regular speaker wire, which when pushing through holes in studs can become an issue. Also when pulled the inside wire recedes a bit from the end of the cover. And in the project I just completed (wiring my garage for sound), I really needed 100 ft and 75 ft spools. I wound up splicing one of the lines.

    its 2 wires in a white rubber sleeves... works perfectly ... im using it for my Logitech 5.1 z5500... handles the power perfectly fine... i WILL be buying more for when i move next, probably alot more too, but still annoyed that i never actually got 50 feet of cable

    PROS: wire, it works

    CONS: doesnt actually come as 50 feet, first one was 48 feet, second one was 45 feet... annoyed by this
