    Access™ Series 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Speaker Wire, 500ft

    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.

    Speaker Wire
    5/5

    PROS: Great Wire box was great to use, tangle free. Wire is best you can get anywhere and the colored polarity is key, especially when setting up 7.1, 5.1 and 5 additional speakers in one house!!!

    CONS: None that I can think of, maybe live closer to the warehouse to cut dowqn on tranisit time!

    Great Wire
    Great wire at a great price. The jacket isn't as thick as some Monster THX speaker cable I've used. But this wire cost a lot less too.

    PROS: Low cost, easy to dispense

    CONS: None

    500' 14AWG SPEAKER WIRE
    I recommend Monoprice to every one. I am an installer on the east coast but I prefer Monoprice on the west coast

    PROS: I can always count on Monoprice speaker wire to arrive quickly. It is always well packed and shipped damage free. It dispenses very well.

    Speaker wire was in very heavy insulation I should have ordered the 4-conductor for my wiring, but this worked great and was very good quality.

    Excellent Quality
    The quality of the 14awg is amazing. I had these wires run in wall all over my house and used the 500ft and 250ft bundles. They are very sturdy, great for inwall installations.
