    Choice Series 12AWG Oxygen-Free Pure Bare Copper Speaker Wire, 300ft

    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.

    When inquired on phone I was told it is CL2 rated wire, but could not see anything on the wire. Is Choice Series 12 AWG wire a CL2 rated wire?

    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your inquiry. If you are looking for CL2 speaker wire please see our Access series. I hope this helps, thank you!

    CONS: ordered too much wire

    Good speaker wire
    This is very good speaker wire. I'm running Martin Logan speakers with this ( 4 ohm speakers, 50 foot runs ). No issues. 12 gauge wire isn't easy to find locally. I have no problem recommending this wire!

    PROS: Good wire, good price

    CONS: None

    Speaker Wire
    Searched the internet and discovered many stories of inferior speaker cable being sold as well as companies sending lower gauge wire in place of what was ordered. I turned to Monoprice because the quality and price I've come to expect from them. Thanks to the guys at Tekzilla for turning me on to this company. The speaker wire came in a timely fashion and
    is good quality copper through and through.

    PROS: Excellent quality copper all the way through. No coated garbage.

    CONS: Heavy for old guys like me to move.

    Great deal!
    Great product, exactly as described. Excellent deal. I'll always buy my wire and other products Monoprice carries from them.

    PROS: Great quality at an awesome price. Monoprice does it right.

    Speaker Cable
    The speaker wire works well with runs of 70+ feet. It is easy to remove the insulation for installation (with the right tool). My speakers sound just as good, and possibly better than they did with shorter runs of Monster Cable.

    PROS: Great price, speakers sound great!

    CONS: None

    300ft 12AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Speaker Wire Cable
    Best speaker wire I have found at any price. Also lowest cost 100% copper speaker wire I have found. Shipping cost 6.00$ order today, delivered tomorrow.

    PROS: Copper speaker wire best you can use
    12 awg maybe a bit over kill, but so is 3 Emotiva XPA-2's in a 12 x 15 office
    easy to see stripe so you don't mix polarity of ur speakers


    CONS: none

    This cable feels thinner than the usual 12 AWG cable. I first doubted its accurate guage.

    This is not the standard 65/30 (Strands/awg) cable. This cable is amde with 87 strands of thinner (than 30 awg) thickness.

    This construction has made this cable more flexible that the usual 12 awg. The jacket is also thinner which adds to its flexibility.

    I am not sure if this will cause any issue or yield an advantage due this odd construction.

    The spool does not carry any label indicating it as a 12 awg, which creates doubts. However monoprice confirms that if the weight is about 13.8 lbs then this is right cable.

    Speaker Wire
    For my home stereo, I ran 4 separate runs of 80' + with this wire and am powering it with 2 Crown Xti 4000's at 650 W per channel connecting to 4 JBL MR series speakers and the sound is outrageous. Would recommend this wire without hesitation.

    PROS: I checked all local vendors and Lowes and Home Depot and it was by far THE best price . Arrived when promised.

    CONS: None
