    Choice Series 14AWG 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.

    Ordered this to setup new surround system. Will say I am not an audio guru,but do know what sounds good,and these sound GREAT! These are much much thicker then other 14 gauge wires I have bought from Best buy,and circuit city in the past.

    Great price and great product, very impressed...for those having trouble stripping their wires as I have experienced, try using the proper wire stripper for the job, once I found the right wire stripper it was a breeze to take off the outer layer and didnt even lose any of the inside wire with very little effort.

    Works just fine
    Easy to cut and strip the covering jacket. Installing and connecting the cables was a breeze. Save yourself some $$ and get these instead of those expensive Monster cables. Have had them for nearly 2 months and no problems whatsoever. Also the clear jacket blends in well when running along the wall. Oxidation affects all copper cables, irrespective of their brands, but it almost always occurs at the end points where the copper is exposed. If you notice a drop in quality, first try getting rid of the oxide layer at the connecting points before jumping on a new cable.

    PROS: it works and works well!

    CONS: none i can think of

    I used this to wire up my 7.1 HTIB. It originally came with 22 gauge CCA wires, and the quality was not there at all. My speakers really came to life after installing this 14 gauge OFC. I had been looking at several different name-brand speaker wires, such as Monster, and I found that this is the same quality, if not better. It's also thicker than Monster. Monoprice delivers incredible quality, at a price you can't afford not to take advantage of. My only regret was that I didn't order enough of it the first time, so I had to order an additional 50' (though that's nobody's fault but my own).

    PROS: Absolutely perfect sound quality. I would highly recommend this to anybody.

    CONS: None at all

    I had to buy a little more because I was a few feet short

    PROS: Can't buy wire this good at a retail store

    CONS: cost a little more

    Great value
    Significantly less expensive than comparable wires at electronic stores, and is much thicker as well (don't know if that has an impact on the quality). But the quality is perfect.

    excellent quality
    I have rewired my living room 7.1 system and my bedroom 5.1 system with this wire (over 200 feet). It is the best wire I have ever bought and I am 71 years old. I built my first amplifier when I was 12. The insulation is soft and pliable, very easy to route anywhere. The copper strands are soft. It is obviously high quality copper.

    BTW, both receivers are Onkyo high wattage receivers.

    PROS: highest quality

    CONS: None

    PROS: Speaker wire did what it was suppose to do.

    CONS: none

    I replaced some damaged Monster Cable in my bedroom system with this wire. So impressed, I'll probably change out the cables in my main system, too.

    PROS: A quality product delivered promptly at a fair price.

    Like hitting the trifecta. Monoprice rocks!

    CONS: None so far
