    Choice Series™ 18AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper 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 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.

    Can't Beat The Quality & Price
    The same roll you can find at your local Best Buy or Radio Shack is right here at a great price. Enough said.

    PROS: Price and Quality

    CONS: None

    Wire strips cleanly and easily, feels nice and sturdy, easy to work with. Great stuff! Only complaint is that I used it to redo the wiring on my sound system and bought banana plugs here to go with it. May want to use some thicker wire for those - not the fault of the wire though.

    PROS: It's wire

    CONS: It isn't unlimited in length.

    Like just about everything Monoprice sells, it was inexpensive, as-advertised, arrived quickly and did the job. What more can you ask?

    Great
    High quality good gauge, and very thick plastic protection. A little difficult to splice because of the high quality. Extremely cheap. Might want to think about buying another, as 100ft isn't as much as it sounds.

    Good cable, no brainer
    Good cable, just don't like that coating is transparent, for most rented apartments white coating would of work.
